London footballers belt out Chumbawamba in dressing room after Leitrim win

Boris Johnson may not be going to the Connacht Final on 21 July but maybe the Burnley anthem makers will show up.

THE FOOTBALLERS OF London have been knocked down and knocked out many, many times over the years but they keep coming back for more.

Perhaps that is why the song Tub-thumping [otherwise known as I Get Knocked Down] is the team’s official anthem. TV cameras were allowed access into a jubilant post-match London dressing room following their 2-11 to 1-13 Connacht semi-final win over Leitrim.

Check out this great video from RTÉ and rejoice in the sheer joy of a team of players that have enlivened our All-Ireland summer:
