In April 2006, Ashcroft told the Manchester Evening News that he intended to record a new version of "C'mon People (We're Making It Now)" as a charity single in support of England's bid in the 2006 FIFA World Cup. Reportedly the song was to be released by Parlophone on June 12, 2006 in the UK, with the catalog number CDR6706, but never materialised (see 2006 in British music). He had told the paper that "In the next few days I’m going to try and do an alternative football song and raise money for charity. I’m playing in a football match to raise money for Bobby Moore’s charity and I’d like to split the money I raise from the song between that charity and the Teenage Cancer Trust. I want to do some good on this planet. I want to write a song, which actually mentions the team and the people involved. I never thought I’d do one, but I like to be the alternative. I think it will be a version of C’mon People called C’mon England."
