As this week's NME magazine is an Alternative World Cup Guide, we're getting slightly over-excited about the The Beautiful Game's biggest tournament kicking off by picking out some magic "music meets football" moments.

On the day that Capello's final team gets announced, here are some familiar NME faces making a strong case for their inclusion on the plane to South Africa...
