Could football really be coming home?

One for the purists, here's Del Boy from "Only Fools And Horses", ringing Gareth Southgate during a press conference to confirm that football is indeed on its way home. This has been an incredible World Cup run and we've enjoyed every minute.

The resurgence of the football anthem Three Lions has been an unexpected boon for its composers, who have seen it return to the charts through no effort of their own.

As the England get ready to take on Croatia in their first World Cup semi-final in 28 years, one wedding DJ played the 1996 hit "Three Lions" on the dance floor which sent guests into cheers, dance and song.

If you've come into even incidental contact with an English person in the last few weeks, they will have made one thing painfully clear to you: football's coming home.

In 1998, the Lightning Seeds re-released "Three Lions" with new lyrics, an opportune cash-in with lyrics updated to reflect the loss two years earlier.

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

Frank Skinner was among the celebrities sharing their hopes and excitement ahead of England's World Cup game against Sweden.

Even England's players have got in on the act, with Manchester United attacker Jesse Lingard sharing the contents of his phone conversation with his mother.

"For those attending a wedding service at 3pm, I'd strongly encourage you to make sure you are fully on-side with the happy couple and switch off your mobile phone in advance", she told the Daily Telegraph.

With the World Cup final taking place next Sunday, will Three Lions be announced as number one for a second week straight after Harry Kane lifts the trophy for England? The team broke the curse of losing penalty shootouts by winning 4-3. Fair, but we mustn't forget the line which follows: "I know that was then / but it could be again".
