The World Cup and those national anthems

National anthems are supposed to be stirring, triumphal pieces of music; the spirit of a nation set to music and song. This World Cup I have been paying a little more attention than usual to them and there are some truly odd ones. The one that really fascinates me is Uruguay’s national anthem…it’s not a national anthem, it’s an opera!
