Football's coming home! There is no doubt about it, as these infectious movie and TV inspired Wold Cup mash-ups prove.

There's been some vaguely annoying fake news spread about the place regarding the England football team's official song for Euro '96 and World Cup '98.

Multiple social media platforms are overflowing with memes, fan made videos, and tweets from England fans, cheering for their favorite team. As the big boys have dropped like flies and England have somehow ended up in the semi-finals of the World Cup, people are daring to dream.

The Three Lions face Sweden in a quarter-final clash this afternoon, with the winners going on to play either Russian Federation or Croatia in the last four.

England football man gets tattoo on his bum.

While there may still be eight nations competing, the real victor at the World Cup so far must surely be David Baddiel, Frank Skinner and Ian Broudie due to the royalties they are reaping by the bucket load.

With England taking aim at the grandest of prizes, '"It's coming home" has become the tagline to a remarkable campaign.

Baddiel and Skinner created Three Lions with The Lightning Seeds in 1996.

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

Iran tells Trump to stop tweeting about oil prices

'I love football, but I just didn't really want it on my big day.

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.

"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".

It's looking like England will go into tomorrow's quarter final against Sweden with the anthem back in the Top 40.

"I don't know what it is, but sometimes I get a feeling for certain things".
