Romelu Lukaku (forward, Belgium)
Rap music is Romelu Lukaku's go-to genre, the forward citing BIG, DMX and 2Pac as "artists who really give you a boost before a game – I need that". It clearly works, as the 28-year-old scored twice in Belgium's 3-0 win over Russia in their opening Group B assignment. "On our way to training I'm always listening to music," he says. "It really helps me during the tournament." 2Pac's Can't C Me is a particular source of motivation: "This song makes me think: 'I'm the man'."
Vladimir Darida (midfielder, Czech Republic)
Vladimir Darida has been setting the tone in Czech Republic's midfield for almost a decade – and has done likewise with the team's dressing room jukebox. Tak teda pojď (literal translation: 'Come on!') by Czech rock band Kabát is his personal favourite: "I always listen to this song before each game. I've done it since the beginning of my career." David Guetta's upbeat hit Play Hard also gets him fired up before kick-off, while Když nemůžeš, tak přidej (literally: 'When you can't take any more, keep going') by Mirai serves as a reminder to his team: "That means that we never give up!"
Jan Bednarek, (defender, Poland)
A tough-tackling centre-back by trade, Poland's Jan Bednarek switches off from the game to the beat of rap music. "It makes me reflect on the world," says the 25-year-old. "You can turn yourself off, think, relax. I listen to music every day, it's my relaxation technique." He’ll be in the perfect frame of mind, then, when his side face Slovakia in their first Group E fixture. "I think rap music lets me broaden my mind. It's cool to look at artists as inspiration and path for development."Download the EURO app
