brussels - If you are attending your work day after the World Cup fiasco in Belgium in the Brussels metro, the French hymn suddenly sounds out of the speakers. That lot had to endure hundreds of balding football fans the day after the elimination by France (1-0).
The French sounds in the Brussels metro trains were the result of a bet between the Brussels and Paris public transport companies. If Belgium had won, the station Saint-Lazare in the French capital would be renamed Saint Hazard, as a tribute to the Belgian star player Eden Hazard.
However, it was not allowed for our southern neighbors: they had to listen to the song 'Tous ensemble' by the French rocker Johnny Hallyday.
