Come on England! Celebrities euphoric after World Cup quarter-final win

Come on England! Celebrities euphoric after World Cup quarter-final win

Safe to say that royal fans were delighted by the Duke of Cambridge's outburst of national pride, and his tweet has since been liked over 40,000 times with plenty of replies praising him for his words. Football could actually be coming home.

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

After England reached the World Cup semi-final, "Three Lions" by Baddiel, Skinner & The Lightning Seeds has gone to number one!

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.

Goalkeeper Jordan Pickford was the star of the show after doing three incredible saves to ensure England got their well-deserved clean sheet.

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".


What's extraordinary, although perhaps unsurprising, is that the song continues to chart - once every four years like clockwork, as England's football-winning ambitions remain as intimately tied to the single as the yuletide holidays do to Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas".

Both versions of Three Lions have sold a combined total of 1.6 million copies, making the song one of the most successful singles in the United Kingdom of all time. Before England's game against Belgium last week I heard it played, sung and screamed three dozen times; in the hours afterward, I heard it performed at karaoke.

Talk about spreading the England cheer on the other side of the pond!

"Sometimes it's hard to break a team down, so if you win 1-0, if they had won the game 1-0 (against Colombia), it wasn't a classic in any way".

The football anthem climbed 32 places to the top of The Official Vodafone Big Top 40 following England's 2-0 win against Sweden.
