While the Colombian songstress takes centre stage singing the football competition's new anthem La La La (Brazil 2014), it's her 16-month-old son Milan who steals the show in the video.

Making the video for the new World Cup song is particularly significant for Shakira as she met her partner Gerard Piqué while producing the film for her 2010 offering Waka Waka (This Time for Africa).

Four years on, Shakira, 37, and Gerard, 27, are joined by their toddler as they appear as a family in the video, which has been released in collaboration with yogurt brand Activia to support the World Food Programme's School Meals Programme.

A team of famous footballers star alongside Shakira, Gerard and Milan - including Lionel Messi, Cesc Fabregas, Eric Abidal, Neymar, James Rodríguez, Sergio Agüero, and Radamel Falcao.

So star-studded is the video that the Whenever Wherever singer offered to reward the first fan who could name-check all of the sportsmen.

"First person to reply with the names of all the footballers in the new video gets a RT! #daretodream" She posted on Twitter, prompting hundreds of replies and retweets.

The video's release comes three weeks before the month-long global sporting event kicks off on 12 June.
