LONDON, Apr 20 (Reuters) England soccer fans are being encouraged to learn the German versions of well known football chants before the World Cup.

In its package of travel tips for fans at the month-long tournament, the Foreign Office is to provide handy singalong translations on its website www.britishembassyworldcup.com.

''Those football fans who wish to learn the English songs in German to sing at the World Cup can do so and the Foreign Office will help them do that,'' a spokesman said.

''We are not sure when they will go up on the site and which chants will be chosen,'' he added.

The Sun, Britain's leading tabloid, stepped eagerly into the breach with a two-page World Cup song sheet.

Inevitably that included a translation of ''5-1 5-1'' -- England's winning margin against Germany in a World Cup qualifying match in 2001.
