Crew aboard the Portsmouth-based HMS Tamar, a River-class offshore patrol vessel, can be seen parading around the ship to the Fat Les anthem.

The clip was posted on Twitter ahead of the England facing Italy in the first tournament final the English men’s side has faced in 55 years.

One crew member can be seen knocking on the captain’s cabin before leading crew in the song.
