NATIONWIDE KICKS OFF CAMPAIGN TO GET LITTLE BRITAIN’S
ANDY INTO THE ENGLAND SQUAD
Given that any great squad could always use a 24th man just in case, Nationwide has created a website at www.andyforengland.com where fans can get behind a campaign that is backing the inclusion of Little Britain star Andy in the England squad.
The whole nation was stunned to witness Andy’s antics in Nationwide’s current ad campaign, where he took on Theo Walcott, Jermain Defoe and Peter Crouch before booting the ball past goalkeeper David James to score. If only Fabio Capello had seen see his silky skills on display before announcing the team, the line-up could have been very different. Maybe this is where England fans can help?
Fans can share their support for England, and Andy, via Facebook and Twitter on the site. All those who vote will be entered into a competition and will be in with a chance of winning a signed England shirt.
Football pundit and commentary icon Chris Kamara said: "I have been watching Andy for some time and the way that he takes the ball from Theo then pushes the ball through the legs of Jermain is awesome. Andy completes this World class goal with a lofted ball over big Crouchy and an overhead kick past David James. This boy has got to be pushing for a place!”
Alastair Pegg, head of brand marketing at Nationwide, commented: “We’re delighted that our ad campaign has showcased Andy’s amazing football skills and brought him to the attention of England’s football fans. Like us, many fans think he could be a great addition to the national side during this crucial World Cup campaign. Good luck England and don’t forget Andy!”
