Get down to the Jerzy beat
The Trophy Boyz with Dudek masks

You saw him win the European Cup and marvelled at his spaghetti-legs - now Jerzy Dudek could take the pop charts by storm.

A group of Liverpool fans calling themselves The Trophy Boyz have recorded a tribute to the goalkeeper who single-handedly defied the might of AC Milan.

Entitled 'Du The Dudek', the song - which fittingly boasts a Euro-pop chorus - relives the drama of that glorious night in Istanbul when Liverpool came from 3-0 down to triumph against all the odds.

Co-writer Adrian Zag said: "The lads produced the mother of all comebacks and I spent the next couple of days watching every news report on the TV and the internet.

"The BBC Sport website had a Du the Dudek video and I also heard that Jerzy had been dragged on to the dancefloor after the match by the players' wives and girlfriends to perform his moves again.

"Then I came across this little blog spot which said someone should do a song about the whole night so I went away and wrote the track with the other Trophy Boyz."

Zag, part of a production team involved with artists including Britney Spears and Celine Dion, admits his latest offering is unlikely to win the Ivor Novello award.

"It's not a serious song, it's a bit of fun. It's meant to get people dancing around their barbies during the summer. It's a madcap, crazy, rollercoaster tune to commemorate a crazy, rollercoaster match.

"For what it is, I think it's a cracking football song and the idea is to have it released as a single.

"We've had approaches by two record companies and we want to make this a big hit, to keep Liverpool's triumph fresh in the mind for as long as we can.

"If every Liverpool fan - or even one in 10 Liverpool fans - downloads the track it will go into the charts on downloads alone."

Du The Dudek - sample lyric: "Jerzey's double save And we're back from the grave!" - can be found on the TMC Records website -

"The song is unlikely to replace You'll Never Walk Alone as the Liverpool anthem," conceded Zag - "but I hope it replaces that bloody frog at the top of the charts!"
