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 5 of the World Cup, and we’re starting the week with 3 matches from Group F and G. This match is between two incredibly successful Eurovision nations, Sweden and Israel! Let’s get into it!
If we look at wins at Eurovision, it’s very clear that Sweden is one of the most successful nations at the contest, having won the contest a total of six times. With that said, we had to pick just one representative for Sweden in our Eurovision World Cup, and it was certainly a tough choice. In the end we picked one of our most iconic winners, and that’s Loreen with Euphoria which won in 2012.
Israel has had a successful history at Eurovision, having won the contest four times, with the latest being this year’s contest. Their winners have been memorable and well loved, but only one song can represent Israel at the Eurovision World Cup, and since it’s still fresh in our minds, we decided that it will be Netta who will represent Israel with her winning song Toy, which won with 529 points.
