CARDIFF, England (AP) - Welsh band Manic Street Preachers is recording the country’s official European Championship song and members of the team will take part in the video.

Led by Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale, Wales is preparing for its first appearance at an international tournament since the 1958 World Cup.

The Football Association of Wales says profits from the song, “Together Stronger (C’mon Wales),” will go to charities Tenovus Cancer Care and Princes Gate Trust.

Wales coach Chris Coleman says “Manic Street Preachers have been passionate Welsh football supporters and all the lads (players) enjoyed the experience and joined in.”

At Euro 2016 in France, Wales will play England, Russia and Slovakia in the group stage.
