Take That star teams up with Gary Lineker to record England squad's World Cup song

Take That star Gary Barlow has teamed up with Gary Lineker as well as other past England stars to record the squad's song for this summer's World Cup.

Barlow is going from Back For Good to back-four good as he headed into the studio today to work on the as-yet-unnamed track.

Chart stars including Katy B, Mel C and Pixie Lott are among the figures who will also feature on the anthem designed to spur on England's hopes in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

A group of 12 former England players - including the likes of Sir Geoff Hurst and Michael Owen - was at Sarm Studios in West London this morning where they also worked on the video to accompany the track.

It was also the location for the recording of the Band Aid single in 1984 and the new promo will be unveiled for the first time during the TV broadcast for Sport Relief night on Friday, March 21.
