With World Cup fever sweeping the globe, it isn’t any surprise that Japan, one of the premiere soccer nations in Asia, are in on the pandemonium. J-Pop idol Sheena Ringo has released a brand new single quite patriotically titled ‘NIPPON’. The song is Japan’s official theme song for their World Cup efforts and is played on heavy rotation during the NHK’s broadcast of the World Cup.
The song is described by Ringo as having a “strong attitude of someone who is going for the win in a win or lose situation of life”. So like win and fight and stuff soccer ball kicking people of the world. For all those crazy Japanese soccer fans out there, Ringo encourages you all to yell for a Samurai Blue victory in the World Cup. After reading some of her comments on the song, I have come to the conclusion that Sheena Ringo is a pretty quirky gal. You can check out the song below to feel the Nippon pride flow through you.
