We Are Scientists have recorded their own World Cup anthem for the England football team.

The band are offering up a free download of the track 'Goal! England' on the website
www.goalengland.co.uk.

"People ask why we didn't record a football anthem for America," explained Chris Cain, particularly in light of the England versus USA match on Saturday (June 12). "When you want to give your girlfriend a great gift, you give her something you know she wants, not something you want. We've never been huge football guys, but we're pretty big England guys, and we know her well enough to know she loves her a football anthem. So we made her one."

The song, which was recorded earlier this week (June 7), comes ahead of their new album 'Barbara' which is released on Monday (June 14).

The track is the latest in a long list of unofficial World Cup anthems, including Dizzee Rascal and James Corden's 'Shout For England'.
