The Magic Gang covering ABBA is the perfect soundtrack to your England vs Sweden World Cup weekend

Laid down as England played Colombia for BBC Radio 1, it's like they knew!

Look, Dear Reader, we’ll be honest. While normally we’d be all over a live radio session from The Magic Gang, we were ‘otherwise engaged’ when this went out on Tuesday night. Something about England vs Colombia, or something.

As well as performing current ‘All That I Want Is You’ and ‘Getting Along’, the quartet also laid down a cover of ABBA’s ‘SOS’. We’ve yet to 100% confirm if it was this that inspired our brave young lions to drag themselves to victory in order to face Sweden in the quarters, but we’re willing to tell you it definitely was anyway.

Recorded for Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1, you can check out the full thing below.
