The Sportsman are delighted to announce our official 2018 World Cup song, “Gareth Gareth Gareth” by Bell and Spurling.

We teamed up with the pop duo to write/produce a funny light-hearted song about England and their World Cup hopes. The idea was to recreate Bell and Spurling’s classic ‘Sven Sven Sven’ from 2001 into a catchy tune about England’s new manager Gareth Southgate and the current players in his first World Cup squad.

Bell and Spurling poke fun at Kane’s interview skills, Italy and Scotland not being involved and Southgate’s iconic penalty miss and Pizza Hut advert. They eventually turn it around and support the team with the lyrics “We think we’re gonna do alright mate.”

The Sportsman directed the music video for the song which features former England and Liverpool player Neil ‘Razor’ Ruddock who helps sing the song in his pants while drinking a popular blue alcopop which rhymes with WKB.

Bell and Spurling will also be doing a live performance of this World Cup song and their other chart topping hits including “Sven, Sven, Sven” and “Goldenballs” in Manchester before England’s first game vs Tunisia on Monday the 18th of June. The venue for the live performance is still to be confirmed however it will be announced on The Sportsman’s social channels. You will also be able to watch the live performance on The Sportsman’s Facebook page.

We will be releasing the song which will become available to download on ITunes and Spotify.

After singing at Simon Cowell and Rod Stewart’s parties, Bell and Spurling released “Sven Sven Sven” after England’s famous 5-1 win away in Germany and since then it has become a stable hit England anthem in any good England song playlist. The song rocketed up the charts and peaked at 7 leapfrogging Ian Brown’s Fear, So Solid Crew’s 21 seconds and Mambo No 5. and stayed in the Top 40 for 6 weeks.

To prove to record labels the guys were credible singers they then released “Goldenballs” ahead of the 2002 World Cup in Japan. A slower song showing off their vocal talent and dedicated to England’s captain David Beckham. The song charted enabling them to appear on “Top of The Pops” for a second time.

Martin Bell and Johnny Spurling have continued to work together on various music and comedy projects, performing all over Europe on the corporate circuit. 

The  last few years have seen them perform at many major events including Edinburgh Festival, The O2 Indigo and The Queens Coronation Festival at Buckingham Palace.
