Northern Ireland’s official song for their campaign at the UEFA Women’s Euros 2022 has been released today.
The release of ‘Girl Got Game’ by Belfast artist Jessica Hammond kicks off a countdown of activity before the tournament starts on 6 July. which will include a special NI squad announcement event on 27 June at Windsor Park.
Jessica Hammond told irishfa.com: “‘Girl Got Game’ is a female empowerment song. I wanted to write a song where the vibe was uplifting and motivating. I wanted to write lyrics using football terminology like ‘always ready to attack’ and ‘don’t take your eye off the ball’ while also keeping it vague enough to be relatable outside of the game, and to be a feelgood song for all women, even outside of the sport.”
Angela Platt, Director of Women’s Football at the Irish FA, said: “This summer will see levels of interest and excitement in our women’s and girls’ game at an all-time high. Our team have made history by qualifying for the Euros and I’m delighted to have Jessica’s soundtrack backing our team every step of the way.”
