There should be an English National Anthem to be adopted by all teams representing England.  The National Anthem (God Save The Queen) is the anthem of the United Kingdom.

Why is this idea important?

I find it really annoying when England are playing Scotland, Wales or Norther Ireland that the other 3 countries compete under their own anthems (Flower of Scotland etc.) whilst England competes under the banner of God Save The Queen – which it can be argued is equally the reserve of the teams we are competing against.

The English team at the Commonwealty games have traditionally competed under the banner of Land of Hope and Glory. Jerusalem or They'll always be an England would be other possibilities.
