Noel Gallagher: I was Italy's lucky mascot at World Cup 2006

Noel Gallagher looks back on his most memorable World Cup moments, including Italia '90, the Brazil kit, and why he was Italy's lucky charm at the 2006 finals.
Marco:
Lovvvvvvvvve thisssss!!!!!!! cheeeeerssssss
Pavarotti !!! :)))
"his missus just happened to be there" mwahahahaha
Del Piero "made me wear the same clothes" ahahaha
He remembers the World Cup in '74, me Italy World Champion '82 :)

Former Oasis man also reveals 'secret' about New Order's 'World In Motion'.
Noel Gallagher has claimed he was a lucky mascot for Italy during their successful FIFA World Cup campaign in 2006.
Discussing his memories of the tournament on BBC's Football Focus programme
, the former Oasis man revealed Azzurri player Alessandro Del Piero - a friend of Gallagher - believed he was a lucky charm for the side at the tournament.
The superstition started when Del Piero scored the winner for Italy in the semi-final of the tournament against Germany and ran towards Gallagher to celebrate.
"I was sat beside his wife. His wife reckons he was coming over to blow kisses at her, but what's actually happened is he's seen me and his wife happened to be there," Gallagher joked.
"He then gets it in his head that I'm his lucky mascot, so he said: 'You'll have to come to the final'. He made me wear the same clothes," he added.
Gallagher also claimed that New Order's 'World In Motion' - released to coincide with the 1990 World Cup - wasn't originally supposed to be a football song.
"They didn't write it specifically for that, I know for a fact it was just a song they had lying round and added a few words to," he said.
"I don't care what anybody says, the New Order song isn't really a World Cup song."

New Order, World in motion

1982, Italy-Germany 3-1
Marco: one of my first football memories when I was a child is the 1982 final, Italy World Champion. I was on a red table in the kitchen (I still have that table :) and our house porter was shouting at every goal, and I was so happy also because Marco Tardelli was my idol. Unforgettable the way he exulted (minute 2:23) (1st goal: Paolo Rossi, 3rd Altobelli)
