New Order win World Cup song poll
New Order
New Order's World in Motion reached number one in 1990
New Order's 1990 hit World in Motion has been named the best World Cup song by football fans.

World in Motion, which was in the charts as England reached the semi-finals at Italia '90, came top of a Littlewoods Pools poll of 1,500 fans.

Nessun Dorma, the BBC's theme tune for the 1990 finals, came second.

Three Lions '98 by The Lightning Seeds featuring David Baddiel and Frank Skinner was third, with another 1998 song, Vindaloo by Fat Les, in fourth.

Fans voted This Time (We'll Get It Right) by the 1982 England World Cup Squad as the worst World Cup anthem.

It was followed closely by the Spice Girls' 1998 effort (How Does It Feel To Be) On Top Of The World.
