Why All Your English Mates Keep Telling You That Football’s Coming Home

Football's coming home! England's efforts have 'Three Lions' pushing for No. 1 spot

It's coming home, it's coming. But first, a bit of context.

After reaching number one twice in that year, the song was re-released two years later for the 1998 World Cup in France and again was in the top spot for three weeks.

Excitement reached fever pitch among a number of famous football fans, with the cast of West End musical Hamilton changing one of their songs to sing Three Lions.

With Gareth Southgate and his England football team heading towards their inevitable football World Cup destiny and Britain going absolutely mad for it, these "It's coming home" memes have been fueling the Three Lions fire... The following are our favourites thus far.

England beat Sweden 2-0 in Samara on Saturday and are through to the first semi since 1990 where they will face either Croatia or Russian Federation.

The Lightning Seeds' Ian Broudie and comedians Frank Skinner and David Baddiel originally released Three Lion in 1996.

Gang may have used drones to help Redoine Faid escape prison
Brahim Faid's lawyer, Keren Saffar, said Redoine told his brother that someone was coming to get him and to stay where he was. It said "an armed commando landed in a helicopter in the courtyard as the prisoner was in the visiting room" of the facility.

Matt Yeo, who is marrying Sophie Wood - whom he says had to take a lot of convincing to accommodate those guests who are football fans as she is not one - has ordered a satellite dish for the post-ceremony reception.

Although the game was a World Cup quarter-final, there were not many supporters on each side in the stadium, The Sun's Charlie Wyett observed, describing the atmosphere on the ground as "strangely subdued". Football could actually be coming home.

Set pieces have been more influential in this World Cup than any from recent years with 43% of all group stage goals coming from either free kicks, penalties, corners or throw-ins.

Good luck and let us know how you get on.

"Not just the players around the camp, the media, the pundits, I think everyone genuinely wants him to do well and that's as much to do with the man as it is to do with England being their country".
