Singer-songwriter Joy Crookes has teamed up with a host of famous faces to release ‘Our England’, a film made in celebration of the announcement of England’s final squad for UEFA Women’s EURO 2022.
Three time Brit-nominated Crookes penned the narrative behind ‘Our England’, a film that delivers a message of community and creates a sense of unity as the nation comes together as one football family this summer.
Crookes’ lyrics reflect on the journeys each of the players have travelled to reach this moment in their career, building the sense of excitement and renewed hope that comes ahead of a major tournament.
The film closes with a rallying call to fans up and down the country to come together and get behind ‘Our England’ this summer.
Former England internationals Ian Wright, Rio Ferdinand and Alex Scott feature in the film alongside Olympian Sky Brown, BB1 Radio DJ Clara Amfo, comedian Munya Chawawa and creators Amelia Dimoldenberg, Chunkz, Yungfilly, Elz, Francis Bourgeois and Joelah.
Crookes commented, “It was an absolute honour to be part of this announcement and to be given the opportunity to stand alongside these 23 incredible women as they get ready for the EUROs this summer.”
“Hopefully I’ve been able to capture the true spirit of the team and excite fans across the country to come together and give this squad the support they deserve when the tournament kicks-off in July.”
Former England women’s international Alex Scott added, “This summer is set to be special, we’re on home soil and have an incredibly talented squad lining up for us. But, what makes this summer even more significant, is the potential that this tournament and these players hold in inspiring the next generation of female players.”
