Uma banda inglesa, chamada Band of God, decidiu escrever uma música imaginando o que aconteceria se Messi fosse inglês e o resultado ficou muito bom. A letra é carregada com a fina ironia britânica, critica a Fifa, John Terry, Roy Hodgson e até brinca com a Margaret Thatcher.

A conclusão é basicamente que os torcedores ingleses dançariam tango na praça de Trafalgar e sambariam em um memorial de guerra. Uma das partes mais inspiradas versa que eles aceitam “ceder as Malvinas e o corpo da Thatcher em troca de Messi, e talvez Agüero também.”

Talvez a seleção inglesa conseguisse pelo menos passar das quartas de final se Messi comandasse o seu ataque.

A letra original:

If Messi was an Englishman

We’ve got Stevie G, Jackie Wilshie
And thankfully, no JT
Wayne Rooney and two Dannys
But what we need is one Messi

We’ve got Cahill, Carrick, Bainsey
Ross Barkley and Frank Lampey
Sterling, Smalling, wait and see
But what we need is one Messi

We’ll Tango in Trafalgar Square
We’ll Samba round the Cenotaph
We’ll waltz our way down Wembley Way
Once all of FIFA’s bribes are paid
And Messi is an Englishman

If Messi was an Englishman
If Messi was an Englishman
If Messi was an Englishman
If Messi was an English Man

We’ll send you back to your favela
With your flags of green and yella’
As Spaniards choke on their chorizo
And we puke in their paella

No pasta, snails, or brussel sprouts
Schnitzels, Edam, it’s all out
Three lions just eat vindaloo
And maybe some asado too
And there aint a damn thing you can do
Once Messi is an Englishman

We’ll Tango in Trafalgar Square
We’ll Samba round the Cenotaph
We’ll waltz our way down Wembley Way
Once all of FIFA’s bribes are paid
And Messi is an Englishman

If Messi was an Englishman
If Messi was an Englishman
If Messi was an Englishman
If Messi was an English Man

We’ll be at the Copa, Copa del Mundo (world cup)
Copa, Copa del Mundo
Copa, Copa del Mundo
Copa….and we’ll all be singing

*Vamos vamos inglaterra
vamos vamos a ganar
que esta barra quilombera
no te deja no te deja de alentar.

*(Argentinine football anthem in the style of a chanting football crowd with argentina replaced with england)

We’ll give you Las Malvinas
And Thatcher’s body too
Just give us the Messi-ah
And maybe KunAguerro too

then
We’ll Tango in Trafalgar Square
We’ll Samba round the Cenotaph
We’ll waltz our way down Wembley Way
Once all of FIFA’s bribes are paid
And Messi is an Englishman

If Messi was an Englishman
If Messi was an Englishman
If Messi was an Englishman…
If Messi was an Englishman
If Messi was an Englishman
If Messi was an Englishman
If Messi was an Englishman
….and Hodgson was an Argentine!!!
