Trio of football songs in top 10
Twisted X
The Twisted X song was chosen by Xfm listeners
Three football songs feature in the top 10 of the UK singles chart as the country is gripped by Euro 2004 fever.

However, none of the tunes could knock Mario Winans off the top spot.

Come on England by 4-4-2 - a reworking of the Dexy's Midnight Runners song Come on Eileen - led the way with a new entry at number two.

The official Euro 2004 song, The Farm's All Together Now, climbed to five, while Twisted X entered at number nine with their Born in England anthem.

All Together Now, which is an update of The Farm's 1990 hit, was remixed by BBC Radio 1 DJ Spoony and features the St Francis Xavier Boys Choir of Liverpool.

All Together Now was a number four hit for The Farm in December 1990

London-based rock station Xfm is behind the Twisted X song.

The track features members of Supergrass and the Delays, as well as the Xfm breakfast show team and actor James Nesbitt.

In the album chart, veteran dance act Faithless went straight in at number one with new release No Roots, dislodging rock group Keane, who moved down to two.

Mario Winans climbed one place to number three, while Supergrass went in at number four with their 'best of' album featuring their hits from the past 10 years.

The Corrs completed the top five, dropping down three places from last week.
