Make Land Of Hope And Glory the English anthem

What song will England be singing in the World Cup?
"God Save The Queen" of coarse. But why?
I do not hate this song, except for the fact it does NOT represent England but Britain.
England does not officially have a national anthem but I have heard that our recommended song is "Land Of Hope And Glory".
So why don't we accept this as our anthem and sing this at England's matches instead?
