London (Reuters): England's official World Cup song, a laid-back, guitar-based anthem with no guest vocals by any of the players, hit the airwaves today. ''World At Your Feet'', by Yorkshire-based indie band Embrace, was played on radio stations for the first time. ''It's all about the England team doing well, you know, and there's a line in there 'it can be done','' said lead singer Danny McNamara. Asked if he thought the team would like it, McNamara told the BBC, ''We did it wholeheartedly so I hope they like it''.
''With the world at your feet, there's no one you can't beat,'' the song goes. ''With the world at your feet, there's no height you can't reach''. England's first World Cup match is against Paraguay in Frankfurt on June 10.
