There's been some vaguely annoying fake news spread about the place regarding the England football team's official song for Euro '96 and World Cup '98.

"For me, Uruguay have been excellent, I like Belgium, but I think it will be a Croatia, England semi-final, and then if England get though I fancy them, I really fancy them". 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.

"It's coming home" has emerged as the prevailing watchword and catchphrase of the World Cup '18 among the English.

Dubbing "Three Lions" over absolutely every movie ever made has proved to be a popular theme.

The most erotically charged example of football coming home definitely came with a little help from the brilliant dole queue scene in "The Full Monty". "We still believe, says Three Lions '98, so yes, all right, I believe - it's coming home".

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.
