One Direction favourites to sing world cup song…The bookies are offering the shortest odds on One Direction to sing the 2014 football song for England in the world cup.

Now, whilst we can’t begrudge the band their success in getting the teenagers all steamed up they seem a very odd choice for a world cup song – it could well end up being on a par with their murder of Teenage Kicks and another fine example of the way corporate pop laughs at our culture and then destroys it.

It could be worse though – James Corden is one of the favourites as well…

The current odds are below…

  • One Direction – 10/1 … oh dear!
  • Peter Kay – 12/1 … a bit more hopeful
  • Olly Murs – 14/1 … bring back One Direction!
  • Ant And Dec – 16/1 … better off presenting than singing
  • James Corden – 16/1 … please god no!
  • Arctic Monkeys – 20/1 … great choice but too smart to do it
  • Coldplay – 20/1 … bring back One Direction!
  • Kasabian – 20/1 … ah this makes sense on so many levels
  • Robbie Williams – 20/1 … at least he’s a football fan
  • Baddiel and Skinner – 20/1 … good call
