That’s a rap!

Simon Cowell has chipped in, Noel Gallagher wants to have a go, The Enemy are up for it and now John Barnes has reportedly offered his services to the official England World Cup song.

Barnes, who famously rapped on the official England song ‘World In Motion’ for Italia ’90, is up for redoing it for next year's tournament in South Africa. Talking to Talksport, former New Order bassist Peter Hook who co-wrote the song confirmed the exciting news; “We've just been offered John Barnes to redo the rap for next year.'

He also said David Beckham was lined-up to do his own rap in the same song for the World Cup in 2002 but the FA at the last minute changed their mind and stopped him. The FA will confirm who will perform the official England World Cup song 2010 in December, when the draw for the tournament is made.
