Football fanatics splashed out £750 to show England game at wedding

It's coming home, it's coming.

The frenzied Three Lions fan was one of many celebrating the quarter-final success of England against Sweden when the celebrations turned ugly.

The song's title, "Three Lions", refers to the design depicted on English players' jerseys.

"We could be doing the show this time next week, and we could be looking forward to England being in the World Cup final the next day".

The track, which is on track to top the United Kingdom singles chart this week, was written by The Lightning Seeds and comedians Frank Skinner and David Baddiel and originally released for the 1996 Euros.

The catchy football anthem was written by comedians David Baddiel and Frank Skinner and performed by The LightningSeeds.

It comes as a viral video from another wedding saw the groom's speech thanking "Gareth Southgate and the England football team".

#WC2018: Croatia beat Russian Federation on penalties to set up semi against England
England will take on Croatia , which became the first team since 1990 (Argentina) to win back-to-back penalty shootouts. There we have it, Croatia will face England on Wednesday (July 11 ) for the semi-final stage of the tournament.

And Prince William proved yet again that he's got just as much World Cup fever as the rest of us, after he posted another rare tweet, showing just how excited he is about the prospect of football finally coming home.

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".

Online streaming service Spotify reports that Three Lions was streamed almost half a million times on England's match against Colombia, and has gone through the roof following the team's Sweden win.

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

Three Lions first hit the top of the UK Singles Chart when it was released in 1996, where it remained at No 1 for two weeks. The team broke the curse of losing penalty shootouts by winning 4-3.

Good luck and let us know how you get on. That "could", so tentative and clouded by doubt, says it all.
