Will Young scores second number one
Will Young
Will Young has now had two number ones
Will Young has topped the singles chart, displacing Eminem as the various football-themed songs have a mixed showing.

The Pop Idol's cover of The Doors' Light My Fire, beat the show's hosts Ant and Dec into third place with their official World Cup song.

We're on the Ball came in third, while Eminem's Without Me took second spot.

As England flopped in the Far East, football songs had a low-key start.

DJ Otzi's re-released Hey Baby, adapted for terrace songs all over the country, was the next highest football entry at number 10.

Dismal draw

Bell and Spurling - who found fame with their ode to Sven-Goran Eriksson - picked up the 25th spot with Goldenballs (Mr Beckham to You).

Rivals England Boys were narrowly pipped, taking number 26 with Go England.

England's dismal 1-1 draw against Sweden will not help the prospects of the batch of soccer songs.

But music industry experts believe that if England's campaign goes up a gear and they progress, the football releases should pick up.

That spur could be provided by a victory over Argentina on Friday.
