What a Koopa England Song


As England fans get football fever, some of the country’s leading sporting, music, and acting Stars are ‘Standing Up’ in support of a World Cup Anthem that is creating quite a buzz in the industry. Young band ‘Koopa’ have recorded the original, rousing and uplifting ‘Stand Up 4 England’, out on 5th June, in aid of Barnardo’s, a great charity that helps give children and young people a better start in life.

England International Joe Cole who requested his own personal copy said, “Stand Up 4 England is the business, we even play it on the team coach.” Joe is not alone in his support of the song, England colleague’s John Terry and Frank Lampard also rate it very highly and have their own copies.

England Cricketer and Strictly Come Dancing Champion Darren Gough was impressed enough to feature in the video and shows he is no mean footballer. If Sven is looking for a ready made surprise replacement for Wayne Rooney perhaps he should give Darren a call-up! Darren said “Stand Up 4 England is a great Anthem and as a keen football fan it’s exciting to be doing my bit for the cause”

The following celebrities have shown their support for this charity record by appearing in the fun-fuelled video.... Richard Ashcroft, Gazza, Matt Dawson, Les Ferdinand, Nigel Benn, Damon Hill, Dermot Gallagher, Boris Johnson, Rupert Graves, Ben Cohen, Danny Dyer, Lee Sharpe, Ray Wilkins, Paul Heaton, Martin Offiah, John Barnes, Max Beesly, Matt LeTissier, , Paul Merson, Barry Fry, Cast members of Dream Team, Darren Gough, Neil Downes and ex German World Cup Winning Captain Lothar Matheus who shows his great sense of humour by refusing to Stand up 4 England!

‘Stand Up 4 England’ has been adopted by EnglandFans (the official England Fans club), FSF (Football Supporters Federation) and numerous other organisations. Even Ladbrokes have faith in the song offering only 8/1 on it reaching Number One.

Amongst numerous bookings Koopa will perform live at EnglandFans official World Cup send off party on 1st June in London and have a personal invite from the Mayor of Nuremberg to play in Germany.

The song, penned by Paul Baker (who played on Bravo TV’s ‘Fashanu’s Football Challenge’) has been a firm favourite for ‘Best Unofficial Anthem’ on Talksport and the band recently performed at the England v Germany Legends Game, to a standing ovation.

Richard Ashcroft was impressed enough to tell the boys, “I hope you sell a million” and the song will be featured on ITV1’s Sure Fans United programme on 17th May.

Release Date: 5th June 2006 by Mad Cow Records
