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

Luton chief Nathan Jones has a sneaking suspicion that England will go on and win the World Cup this year.

With the resurgence of the English team in the World Cup in Russian Federation, the song has come smashing back into relevance as England fans start to believe.

Robbie Williams shared a photo of himself holding up a sign that said: "it's coming home".

The Three Lions face Sweden in a quarter-final clash this afternoon, with the winners going on to play either Russian Federation or Croatia in the last four.

A file photo dated 18 June 1996 of former England midfielder Paul Gascoigne in action. 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 Official Vodafone Big Top 40 is the UK's no. 1 chart show and is presented by Marvin Humes and Kat Shoob every Sunday from 4pm.


And now, thanks to the meme, it's No. 1 on the charts in England!

"But certainly I think England are the best team in their side of the draw, closely followed by Croatia".

Three Lions (It's Coming Home), recorded with friend David Baddiel and The Lightning Seeds, was first released back in 1996 for the Euro Championships.

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

The song, which contains the famous lyrics "football's coming home", is usually resurrected around most global tournaments in support of England and has been spontaneously sang by fans up and down the country during the past month.

"I don't know what it is, but sometimes I get a feeling for certain things".
