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 went from Back For Good to back-four good as he headed into the studio 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 Brazil.

A group of 12 former England players – including the likes of Geoff Hurst and Michael Owen – was at Sarm Studios in west London yesterday 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 promo will be unveiled during the TV broadcast for Sport Relief on Friday, March 21.

Mel C had a prominent role on an earlier England song – along with her Spice Girls colleagues – when she performed with Echo And The Bunnymen star Ian McCulloch on (How Does It Feel To Be) On Top Of The World, released under the name England United.

Another Spice Girl, Emma Bunton, is involved in the new song, along with Eliza Doolittle, Conor Maynard and Kimberley Walsh.
