Eurovision World Cup: Ireland vs Cyprus

For the duration of the actual World Cup, some of the best Eurovision artists old and new will be battling it out in a series of matches that mirror the World Cup itself. By the end, we will know the first winner of our Eurovision World Cup!

On each competition day of the World Cup, all of the matches for that day will be posted here on Eurovision Union. For a full 24 hours, a poll will be open for each match and it will be up to you to pick which of the representative songs will win the match.

It is Day 2 of the World Cup, and today features three huge matches from Group A and B. This match is between Ireland and Cyprus, so let’s see who is competing!

Today’s competitors:

Ireland still holds the record for the most amount of wins at Eurovision with a total of 7, so it was a challenge to pick just one of their winners to compete in the Eurovision World Cup. In the end, we decided on Paul Harrington and Charlie McGettigan who performed the song Rock ‘n’ Roll Kids back in 1994. This was the third Irish win in a row, as the nation had won in 1992 and 1993. Watch the performance here:

Cyprus first made their debut back in 1981, but it took until 2018 to achieve their best Eurovision result. The nation has finished in the Top 10 numerous times, but it was fan favourite Eleni Foureira who brought Cyprus closer to their first Eurovision win with the song Fuego. The song finished in 2nd place overall. Watch the performance here:
