If you’ve ever wanted to know what music gets Wayne Rooney prepared for matches, you’re in luck. The England striker shared his World Cup playlist on Twitter, and the mix of songs is rather fascinating.

It kicks off with Drunk In Love, because let’s be honest, no playlist would be complete without Beyonce on it.
Rooney follows that up with a strong selection of English artists — perhaps looking to get some inspiration from his fellow countrymen? Ed Sheeran, Jake Bugg, Passenger, James Blunt, Mumford & Sons and Sam Smith all made the cut.
But what is most
interesting concerning about this list? The lack of upbeat music. It seems more suited for relaxing than getting hyped for a soccer match. Maybe it’s to help him fall asleep after the game?
