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.

With the semi-finals of the World Cup 2018 fast approaching, it's safe to say that England has never been so united.

By watching any England game during this World Cup, it's clear to see that they've put a huge emphasis on their set piece ability. With lyrics like, "England's gonna throw it away, gonna blow it away", and "thirty years of hurt", the song was meant to lovingly poke fun at the bittersweet existence of British soccer fans, according to the Independent.

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.

Baddiiel, Skinner and The Lightning seeds score top place following England win.

We only have to look back to the last worldwide tournament to see evidence in this; the Three Lions rode into the 2016 Euros on a 10-game undefeated winning streak throughout their qualifiers and many in English media were backing them to have a real chance of bringing home their first global trophy in over 50 years.

This follows the Duke of Cambridge's tweet last week (3 July), following England's win against Colombia, when he declared, 'I couldn't be prouder.'.

"I think he's got the full nation behind him, the players are thinking differently and there seems to be a different mentality shift".

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

They trust in themselves, the whole country is by their side and the inspirational moment of becoming heroes surrounds them. I took this as a bad omen.
