'It's Coming Home!' England fans get World Cup fever

  • Three Lions set to return to the Top 40 ahead of England's quarter-final

With England taking aim at the grandest of prizes, '"It's coming home" has become the tagline to a remarkable campaign. But first, a bit of context.

It broke back into the Top 40 Official Singles Chart last Friday just before England beat Sweden 2-0 last Saturday to reach their first World Cup semi-final in 28 years.

The song is titled "Three Lions (Football's Coming Home)' not 'It's Coming Home".

It shows the team spirit - the most inexperienced squad at the 2018 World Cup have made it to the final four! The following are our favourites thus far.

Keep in mind to play this on repeat if/when England inevitable lose ANOTHER World Cup semi final on penalties. "I knew they were going to win, I have faith".

Pedantic? Sure, but hey, that's what it's called, and as England march on through a fairly unchallenging World Cup path to glory, it's a touch irritating seeing it misused en masse.

Plus, if it doesn't come home, how amusing will it be to see them lose after all this excitement?

The catchy football anthem was written by comedians David Baddiel and Frank Skinner and performed by The LightningSeeds.

"You wanted to make history, England, and you are doing just that". Baddiel and Skinner, its comic co-writers, have said they meant the song to reflect the realities of British football fandom in the intervening decades since their fleeting ultimate victory - "a bittersweet love song" to a team that can only be relied upon to screw it all up.

The idea that the girl group's saccharine hit record would be revived as a paean to the England manager would have seemed improbable before the tournament kicked off, but World Cup fever can have rather unusual symptoms.

"Confident, professional and a team that are playing for each other, playing for the manager and playing for our country..."

Indeed, when even the President of Russia, Vladimir Putin, is forced to admit it's coming home, then you know the battle is already won.
