The goalkeeper who gave Australia the passage to the World Cup was on the program from which he took his jumps.

The Australia team qualified for the Qatar 2022 World Cup after winning on penalties in the playoff against Peru, hand in hand with goalkeeper Andrew Redmayne, who managed to stop Alex Valera's decisive shot, after some curious dance steps on the goal line.

A few months after that meeting, the goalkeeper decided to join 'The Wiggles', the band that specialized in children's music that inspired him.

Through Twitter, the 'Socceroos' revealed the footballer's inclusion in the renowned orchestra formed in 1991, in the Sydney city. The announcement was made as a signing and the group, characterized by a different color for each member, reported that the goalkeeper became the 'Grey Wiggle' (gray, because of his clothing under the three posts).

Redmayne had a song adapted for him

After joining the popular band, Andrew did not hesitate to practice the dance steps that he had already shown in the playoff against Peru and also to club level. The athlete's appearance in 'The Wiggles' was accompanied by his own theme: Toot toot, chugga chugga, big Redmayne! (Original variant: Toot Toot, Chugga Chugga, Big Red Car).

In the same way, the goalkeeper of the Australian team confessed how he was inspired by the group for his curious movements. “They are on my TV at home all day (for her 18-month-old daughter). Now, it's a bit surreal to record, together with the guys, the songs that I know backwards”, said the archer.

“I never thought I would take the dance of 'The Wiggles' to the world stage, but I'm glad that it worked. It was a team effort and I only played a small part in what was a four-year campaign to qualify for the Qatar 2022 World Cup,” said Redmayne, who was also highlighted by FIFA for his musical appearance.

Aside from his off-field activity, Andrew is now focused on earning a place in the World Cup. For now, the goalkeeper has been summoned for the friendlies of the Australian team: they will be two-way matches against New Zealand, on Thursday, September 22 and Sunday, September 25.
