Gough set to appear in football World Cup video
As if Darren Gough isn't busy enough bowling and dancing, now he is set to add singing to his repertoire by appearing in a football World Cup song, Stand up 4 England.
Gough, already familiar with the cameras following his triumphant display in Strictly Come Dancing, will sing a line in an unofficial song by pop punk band Koopa.
"As a keen football fan myself it's exciting to be doing my bit for the World Cup cause - albeit in a small way!" Gough told Cricinfo. "Having played in the Cricket World Cup I know what an honour it is to represent your country and I'm looking forward to seeing England having a good run in Germany."
Filming will go ahead at Essex's ground on Tuesday when Gough will sing the line "Ner, ner, ner, ner" - which could be a prescient statement if he manages to make a comeback for England's one-day side after detractors wrote him off this winter.
Gough himself is confident that his international career isn't over, and says that the winter break - in which he toned up through dancing - has left him fitter than ever, refreshed and raring to go. "I have to stay fit and be up for the challenge and I am," he told The Times newspaper. "I'd love to play in the World Cup."
