Euro 2012: Bleu, Blanc, Rouge by François le français feat. doudou

Another excuse for a French football related tune, with France playing Ukraine in the UEFA Euro 2012 tournament.

In their last game failed to put England to the sword, much to the disappointment of the nation full of France supporters in Scotland, but hopefully this game will put them in a firm position to get through to the next round.

The song was used in the 2010 South Africa World Cup, not one of the finest moments ever in the history of Les Bleues. In fact, it was a campaign that pretty much defines the term 'disaster', with a team surrounded in scandal and an early exit thanks to defeats at the hands of Mexico and South Africa, and a draw against Uraguay.

The song Bleu, Blanc, Rouge by François le français feat. doudou takes a very differnt approach to Johnny Hallyday's song I featured last week.

Needless to say, it still didn't actually do Les Bleues any good though.

The song was performed by TV comedy duo Omar and Fred, regular fixtures on French TV.
