Coach Ange Postecoglou is fostering a positive mindset in his new-look Socceroos so it's only fitting that the team's official World Cup song should be titled 'Up!'.
Let's face it, when you're Up against the footballing might of Spain, Holland and Chile a dose of optimism doesn't hurt.
Jade, bringing sexy back for the Socceroos, wrote and recorded the song in Sydney earlier this year, taking her cue from the words of Brazil-bound players explaining what it means to wear the green and gold.
The 2012 X Factor winner said: “I’m so excited my new song ‘UP!’ is the official Socceroos World Cup song.
“I’m looking forward to performing at the Socceroos farewell match against South Africa before they take off for the World Cup.”
FFA CEO David Gallop was full of praise for the upbeat anthem now available on iTunes.
“The Socceroos are preparing to unite all of Australia on the world stage and we now have a song to offer another level of connection between the Socceroos and the fans,” he said.
“Samantha Jade’s song brings to life the words and emotions of the current players and Socceroo pioneers as we all look forward with anticipation to watching the Socceroos do us proud and write the fourth chapter in our proud World Cup history.”
