Have you wondered about the story of “Made in Romania,” the football anthem which can be heard in football lockers across Europe? Here is what the Romanian artist sings and what is the translation of the lyrics. The music genre is “manele,” a specific one for Romania, inspired by Balkan beats.

Manele is a vibrant tapestry of Romanian dance music, woven from threads of traditional folk melodies, pulsating Balkan rhythms, and modern pop sensibilities, with a touch of intoxicating Eastern flair.

So, forget chants, forget anthems – European football has a new victory song, and it’s blasting out of locker rooms in a language you might not expect. “Made in Romania” by Ionut Cercel, a pulsating Manele banger, has undergone a stunning transformation, morphing from a Romanian dancefloor staple to a viral phenomenon uniting teams across the continent.

The story begins not on the pitch but on social media. Hakan Calhanoglu, a Turkish midfielder for Inter Milan with a penchant for Balkan beats, fired up “Made in Romania” in the locker room after the team clinched the Serie A title. The celebratory video went viral, sparking a trend. Suddenly, teams from Greece, Bulgaria, and even beyond were blasting the catchy tune after victories.

But “Made in Romania’s” charm lies in its message of unity. The lyrics, though simple (“It doesn’t matter who you are or what language you speak, this is your country, Romania”) resonate with a broader European audience. Fans, united by their love for the sport, embrace the song’s message of inclusivity, transforming it into a pan-European anthem.
