"Beneath the driving drums, throbbing bass line and reverb drenched guitars though lays a rousing sing-along chorus. Ok, I doubt that you'll catch the England fans giving the team a version of the song's 'bring back the old silverware' chorus but the lyrics are there, along with commentary from John Barnes wonderful 1980 solo goal against Brazil to inspire football dreams and memories. Overall though this isn't a typical World Cup song and, title aside, the connection will soon be forgotten. Leaving instead an epically yearning tune from a very, very promising band who you might just fall head over heels in love with, and who won't leave you in tears after yet another penalty shoot out nightmare".
