A Cornish dad who faces losing his job has recorded his own World Cup song.

Steve Palfrey from Upton Cross works at Muller Wiseman in Pensilva, which is due to close.

Now he is hoping to keep the nation positive as England go into that crunch game with Uruguay.

Steve told Pirate FM 'Fingers Crossed for England' is all about optimism and it is helping him to feel positive about the future.

He said: "Hope is the thing that keeps us all supporting, hope is the thing that keeps us turning up, hope is something that never goes away, even when there is no hope, you always have some hope.

"It is good timing for us that this song seems to be creating such positive feedback, it's just something that we have done for love and enjoyment, it's a great fun thing and we are just glad that everyone likes it."
