Electronic Arts has apologized for inserting the wrong song where Northern Ireland’s national anthem should be played in soccer title UEFA Euro 2008.
While Northern Ireland’s proper anthem is God Save the Queen, the game mistakenly plays The Soldier’s Song.
As reported by MCVUK:
A regional newspaper in Northern Ireland reports that fans reacted with ‘surprise’ to hear the anthem represent their national team in the game… EA spokesperson Shaun White apologised for the error…
That apology has been welcomed by NI Sports Minister Gregory Campbell. He said: "Any apology on this matter is most welcome. Obviously there’s has been a lack of knowledge on the makers’ part and hopefully it will be changed as soon as possible."
