3 Li­ons to roar again at SPOTY

Daily Star Sunday - - FRONT PAGE -

THE cre­ators of the Three Li­ons song will be re­united for Sports Per­son­al­ity Of The Year to hon­our Eng­land’s World Cup run.

Frank Skin­ner and David Bad­diel will work with The Light­ning Seeds for a spe­cial live per­for­mance 22 years af­ter their foot­ball tune was re­leased.

The song was orig­i­nally cre­ated to mark the 1996 Euro­pean Cham­pi­onship, and was pop­u­larly re­vived ahead of Eng­land’s im­pres­sive cam­paign in Rus­sia this year.

Its cre­ators, Skin­ner, Bad­diel and Ian Broudie of The Light­ning Seeds, are set to give a live per­for­mance at the Sport Per­son­al­ity Of The Year cer­e­mony dur­ing a ret­ro­spec­tive of the World Cup run in Rus­sia.

Eng­land man­aged to reach the semi-fi­nal stage, echo­ing the cam­paign at the 1990 World Cup in Italy.

Gareth South­gate’s young side was even­tu­ally elim­i­nated by Croa­tia.

The show will be at the Re­sorts World Arena in Birm­ing­ham next Sun­day.
