Alongside Ian Wright...

Dave and Stormzy helped build the hype ahead of England's victory last night (July 7th).

The two linked up for a pre-match video, discussing past disappointments, and emphasising the belief prevalent in the current squad.

It makes for an oddly moving watch - and the nation agreed, with social media lighting up afterwards.

Ian Wright joins the pair at the end, making for a South London 1-2-3 - Dave is from Streatham, Stormzy is from Croydon, and Ian Wright is from Lewisham.

Of course, it's all good promo for Dave and Stormzy, whose new collaborative single drops in 12 hours or so.

But it's also a sign of changing times - the two speak for a changing England, more in tune with the team itself than the politicians.

Tune in now.
