3 Lions to roar again at SPOTY
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.
