Welsh band Goldie Lookin Chain have released a new song to celebrate Wales’ return to the World Cup.
The new song Football, Football Football has been described by the Newport based group Goldie Lookin Chain as the “unofficial anthem of all football.” The music video shows the band leading members of the public in a march and is reminiscent of the video for the 1998 World Cup song Vindaloo by Fat Les.
The Wales national team are competing in their first World Cup since 1958. They will be managed by Robert Page and captained by former Real Madrid and Tottenham star Gareth Bale.
Goldie Lookin Chain will be hoping that their new anthem inspires Wales to glory in the upcoming tournament and will be hoping to emulate the spirit of the 2016 team which went all the way to the Euro semi-final.
