To celebrate, in what has already been an amazing tournament of football, Jah Wobble has released a special world cup single “England (Your Time Is Now)”.

Gary Lamin of the Bermondsey Joy Riders, a keen Millwall fan, plays guitar on the track. It’s quite a punky anthemic track. I think the punk ethos goes quite nicely with football. Anyway, when it comes to the England Football team hope springs eternal right?”
