Iceland captured the hearts of fans across the continent when they progressed to the quarter-finals of their first major tournament finals at Euro 2016.
Iceland drew with Portugal and Hungary and got the better of Austria in the group stage before eliminating England in the last-16 to assert a reputation as the brave warriors of the tournament capable of punching above their weight.
They were accompanied by a confident and boisterous support who, much like the team, made themselves known despite their miniscule reputation and numbers with the resounding and encapsulating Thunderclap.
The sight of the players leading the synchronised accelerating claps was inspirational to all watching but the country took it to another level when they gave the team a heroes' welcome with another incredible demonstration in Reykjavik upon their return.
Que Viva Espana!
The trademark chant of La Roja’s devoted followers originated in Belgium, but its jovial, catchy tone and happy, Spanish vibe saw it take hold in its spiritual homeland thanks to famous singer Manolo Escobar.
It became a bit of an anthem for national team fans, enjoying a huge spell of popularity during Spain’s golden era.
Their journey to two European Championship and a World Cup success saw Spain and their supporters take centre stage for a good period, and Que Viva Espana was often ringing out.
Campioni del... Seven Nation Army?
Azzurri fans made a new unofficial anthem with their persistent chanting of "campioni del mondo" to the catchy tune of the White Stripes' hit Seven Nation Army.
After the Italians won the 2006 World Cup, the chant was inescapable and became popular with fans across Europe.
The song’s connection to football originates in Belgium and spread through Italy after a visit from Club Brugge fans, and it proved so inspirational it even turned Francesco Totti into a fan of the White Stripes.
“I had never heard the song before we stepped on the field in Bruges,” he said after hearing the song burst out from the stands. "Since then, I can't get the 'Po po po po po po po' out of my head. It sounded fantastic and the crowd was immediately totally into it. I quickly went out and bought one of the band's albums.”
The track's grip on football spread even further, though, enjoying a lengthy spell among stands across Europe.
Will Grigg’s on fire!
Wigan goal machine Will Grigg did not make an appearance for Northern Ireland at Euro 2016, but he was made a legend of the tournament through the memorable chant that dominated France for the summer.
Sung to the tune of 1996 hit 'Freed from Desire' by Gala, the chant went viral when the Wigan supporter behind it uploaded his rendition to YouTube.
With a solid dance beat and lyrics celebrating a tournament underdog, it was the perfect anthem for Northern Ireland fans as they brought a party atmosphere to the competition.
'We’re gonnae deep-fry yer pizzas'
Luca Toni’s double for Italy left Scotland fans resigned to defeat in their Euro 2008 qualifying match, but the visiting supporters found a way to stab at the heart of their opponents with threats of some twisted cultural appropriation.
While the iconic Italian dish is loved and respected across the world, the Scots have a tendency to decimate the basic but classy nature of pizza by immersing it in a thick batter and deep-frying it until it crisps up and oozes greasy, artery-clogging goodness.
Hearing of such threats must have dampened the win for the Italians. So, while Italy got through to the finals and Scotland missed out through a controversial loss to the Azzurri at Hampden, it was the Tartan Army who have the last laugh as they continue to desecrate Italian culture by engorging on deep-fried pizza.
The Scots carried their threats of cultural cuckolding onto other lands when they told Norwegian supporters: “We’re gonnae deep-fry yer longboats”.

The unmistakable battle cry of the fiery South Americans is as enchanting as it is startling and has become a big favourite at recent international tournaments, making a big impression at the 2014 World Cup.
Chile fans had reason to be even more boisterous in the wake of their consecutive Copa America victories until their failure to qualify for the World Cup, so the absence of their fans will be felt in Russia this year.
Allez les Bleus!
The iconic chant is a call for all of France to unite in support of Les Bleus wherever they go and it has the desired effect, making French fans a big presence at every tournament even when the team struggles to do the same.
Boosted by their Euro 2016 final appearance and with an exciting generation at Didier Deschamps’ disposal, Allez les Bleus will be ringing out in Russia this summer.

Argentina’s Blue Moon Rising
The most effective jibe at an old rival is one that is so infectious that even outsiders can’t help but join in. In combining a fun dig at Brazil to the tune of Creedence Clearwater Revival’s 'Bad Moon Rising', Argentina fans found the magic formula.
The Albiceleste faithful raise the memories of their 1-0 win over the Selecao in the last-16 of the 1990 World Cup, claim Messi will lead them to the title again and close on the assertion that Diego Maradona was better than Pele.
Lyrically sound, cutting and to a good beat – if football chants were rap disses, Argentina fans would be Pusha T and Brazil would be Drake.
Americans don't stop believing
There is an endearing innocence to American football culture that is best illustrated through the famous chant that follows their national team.
One loud voice leads the rest bit-by-bit through the encouraging line: “I believe that we will win”, which starts off laboured but becomes rather uplifting at its peak, even if it does lack the conviction of more conventional football songs.
The United States fans caught attention with it at the 2014 World Cup, but proved rather divisive among other supporters.
Brazil fans have much to be proud of when it comes to their national team and they are always happy to sing about it.
The colourful supporters have maintained a reputation as one of the most encapsulating groups at any tournament and they never leave any doubt as to where they come from.
If the sea of bright yellow shirts is not enough of a giveaway, they will eventually belt out a rendition of their most famous song to clear it up.
"Eu sou Brasileiro, com muito orgulho, com muito amor." ("I'm Brazilian, with a lot of pride, with a lot of love"), goes the song that will be following Neymar & Co. in their bid for another world title.
