French anthem is easily the best followed closely by the Italian.

The Irish anthem is alright but the fact that the crowd always starts roaring at a certain point a few seconds from the end intensifies it. Best moment.

English anthem makes me cringe. Awful tripe imo.

Check out Pearce, Southgate, Adams and Neville. Find the odd one out :D


English outsinging the Americans on their own patch (not that I agree with the booing).

I like Portugal's NA.

Rule Britannia has the best tune of all of England’s anthems, quite stirring stuff….The slave undertones slightly ruin it for me though.

God save the Queen is just plain dreary which venerates a single person can understand why Neville nodded off before every game:D….

Land of Hope and Glory is more fitting, good tune, uplifting and appropriate imo.
Replacing it with Jerusalem a church hymn for the commonwealth games was a bit of a joke.

Mae hen wlad fy nhadau yn annwyl i mi,
Gwlad beirdd a chantorion, enwogion o fri;
Ei gwrol ryfelwyr, gwladgarwyr tra mâd,
Dros ryddid collasant eu gwaed.



Gwlad, gwlad, pleidiol wyf i'm gwlad.
Tra môr yn fur i'r bur hoff bau,
O bydded i'r hen iaith barhau.

The English national anthem is crap and pathetic IMO.
A song about a ruler ( who doesn't really rule ) and not
a word about England as a country.

French and Welsh anthems are the best i think.
.
We should have "Jerusalem" at talks about England's green and pleasant lands. God save the Queen? what a dirge that is, and it's about one person who is pretty much obsolete anyway.

Best anthems are Brazil and Italy, great tunes with real go in them.

Any curious english speakers or non Welsh speaking Welsh people

This is the Welsh National anthem spelt Phonetically in English



My hen oo-lad vurr n'had-die un ann-wil ee mee
goo-lard bay-rdd* a ch**ann-tor-eon
enn wog eon o vree
ane goo-rol ruvv-el-weir
goo-lard gar-weir tra mard
dross rudd*-id cor-ll***ar-sant ay goo-eyed.

Goo-lard, goo-lard
played-eeyol weave eem goo-lard
tra more un beer, ear beer horff bye
O budd*-ed eer hen ee-eye-th bar hi.

*There are two "th" sounds in Welsh as there are in English but in Welsh, they are spelled differently."Th" in Welsh is pronounced as in English "think" or "fourth". "Dd" is pronounced as in "this" or "that".

** "ch" is pronounced as in "loch" or "Bach"

*** "ll" is a cross between an "l" and an "s"

Mexicans, at the cry of war,
prepare the steel and the steed,
and may the earth shake at its core
to the resounding roar of the cannon.

Gird, oh country, your brow with olive
the divine archangel of peace,
for your eternal destiny was written
in the heavens by the hand of God.

But if some strange enemy should dare
to profane your ground with his step,
think, oh beloved country, that heaven
has given you a soldier in every son.

has given you a soldier in every son.

Mexicans, at the cry of war,
prepare the steel and the steed,
and may the earth shake at its core
to the resounding roar of the cannon.

and may the earth shake at its core
to the resounding roar of the cannon.
