Paolo Maldini was one of the greatest European defenders to ever have graced a football pitch. So it seems appropriate that Sheffield six-piece Screaming Maldini have conjured a magnificent (unofficial) Euro 2012 anthem, 'Tyrannosaurus Kicks'. Inspired equally by the music of legendary composer John Williams, you can download the track below for free, ahead of England's first match later today.

It's been a while since we last featured the band, when KieranFG reviewed their 'And The Kookaburra Sings' EP just over two years ago. Well, this is something of a triumphant return to our fair website. Capturing the essence of a mighty terrace chant while adding sweeping orchestration to create a pulsating and worthy anthem for "our boys".

The extremely dubious video below also encapsulates their love of John Williams, and most obviously his work from 'Jurassic Park'. I do not recommend watching it. However, I very much recommend downloading the track. Come on, England - "JUST SCORE A GOAL, JUST SCORE A GOAL, JUST SCORE A GOAL, JUST SCORE IT!"
