England's 1996 soccer anthem back on charts, Lifestyle News & Top Stories

England have won a World Cup match against Colombia on penalties and now Football's Coming Home

England fans celebrate as England score their second goal, as they watch the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup quarter-final football match between Sweden and England on a big screen in London on July 7, 2018.

But one of its lyricists has begun to feel irritation with the way that the song is apparently overlooked at matches by the unofficial England team band.

Multiple social media platforms are overflowing with memes, fan made videos, and tweets from England fans, cheering for their favorite team. We might. We could actually... when we're doing the show this time next week, we could be looking forward to England being in the World Cup final the next day.

A first World Cup semi-final spot since 1990 is now within their sights, as they prepare to face Sweden in Samara, while a first global crown since 1966 is there to be shot at.

"A few in that video are defo on for Waistcoat Wednesday- we're reclaiming the flag and the Waistcoat- you're absolutely right - this is England- mad bonkers handsome England" said one person, referencing the surge in waistcoat sales due to Gareth Southgate's trademark look.

"If I was a betting man, I'd put a lot of money on England winning it, but the teams in the other half of the group are going to have some real tough games to get through".

That faith has manifested as one enthusiastic refrain: "It's coming home".

The Three Lions was originally released for the European Championships in 1996 when it topped the charts.

Three Lions by Baddiel, Skinner & The Lightning Seeds is the brand new number one on The Official Vodafone Big Top 40.

Good luck and let us know how you get on.

It returned to the top spot again in 1998 when it was released for the World Cup that year.
