British Sea Power have recorded their own World Cup anthem for the England football team.

Called 'Football (Kick It In The Goal)', the track takes inspiration from a calypso song written to commemorate the opening of the Maurice Bishop International Airport in Grenada.

Featuring British Sea Power's Martin Noble, Brakes' Marc Beatty and Eamon Hamilton and The Modern Ovens' Darren Moon and Matt Eaton, the group have released the song under the name The Bench Warmers.

Available for free, you can download the track via BritishSeaPower.co.uk.

The song is the latest in a long list of unofficial World Cup anthems, including Dizzee Rascal and James Corden's 'Shout For England', Weezer's 'Represent!' and We Are Scientists' 'Goal! England'.
