Star Izzy sur­prised with chant

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

ENG­LAND foot­ball star Izzy Chris­tiansen has been given her own chant.

Izzy, who is from Mac­cles­field, was sur­prised af­ter be­ing called to Wem­b­ley Sta­dium for what she thought was a meet­ing only to be played a video of the chant be­ing sung by par­ents, aun­ties and un­cles as well as school chil­dren.

The stunt was or­gan­ised by Eng­land spon­sors Vaux­hall Mo­tors for Izzy as well as fel­low Eng­land stars Mil­lie Bright and Toni Dug­gan.

Li­on­ess Izzy said: “It was such a sur­prise to see my par­ents, aun­ties, un­cles and cousins filmed right un­der my nose at Wem­b­ley Sta­dium – they man­aged to keep that one quiet! The chants are great. It’s so ex­cit­ing when you hear your name on the pitch and can re­ally change the at­mos­phere, so I’m hop­ing we get to hear them when the games be­gin.” For­mer Tyther­ing­ton School pupil Izzy plays for Manch­ester City and was named PFA Women’s Player of the Year in 2016.

The re­ac­tion of the play­ers was caught on video.

Izzy’s chant goes: ‘Izzy Izzy let’s get busy, ‘Izzy Izzy let’s get busy, ‘Moves so fast it leaves them dizzy,

‘Izzy Izzy let’s get busy!’
