The Detroit Lions and the Three Lions: Drawing inspiration

Gareth Southgate has made England's players believe anything is possible says Shilton Gareth Southgate has made England's players believe anything is possible says Shilton

But England's revival under Southgate at the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation, now just one win away from their first finals appearance since 1966, has shot the song back on to the United Kingdom singles charts, with the line "football's coming home" also becoming the catchphrase of their campaign.

World Cups are often defined by set-pieces, and so Southgate set about making England the best drilled team at set-pieces at this summer's tournament. "His team-mates play at top clubs, it's going to be a hard task but if we're ready to give our all on the pitch like against Argentina, if we're compact, I don't believe there will be problems". Wednesday evening is a huge opportunity for our boys to do what many of us thought was impossible before the World Cup began and reach the Final.

Following England's exit at the hands of Croatia in the World Cup semi-final, online users have started to taking shots at the "it's coming home" sensation that seemed to take over the nation for a period.

England have been based in Repino near St. Petersburg for the tournament, but their campaign has taken them to five different host cities.

"They are proud to wear the shirt".

The song, recorded by David Baddiel, Frank Skinner and the Lightning Seeds, has been echoing around the nation once again ever since it became apparent that Southgate and his team were going to have an extended stay in Russian Federation.

Less than five minutes were on the clock when Kieran Trippier curled a delicious free-kick past the helpless Danijel Subasic. Keane tore into England after their 2-1 extra-time defeat to Croatia in Wednesday night's World Cup semi-final.

"This acquisition would be a fantastic addition to our holdings and would come at an exciting time for us while we build the London Collection as we plan the New Museum in West Smithfield".

Southgate's side have been buoyed by more than just an anthemic pop song, though.

England play Croatia Wednesday night at 7pm.

"It's nice to hear people enjoying it again, anyway".

Against Sweden (2-0 win in the quarter-finals) they were magnificent.

"We shouldn't be surprised Croatia is in the last four", added Dalic, whose side are 20th in the world rankings - eight places below England.
