Everyone seems to know the score They've seen it all before They just know, they're so sure That England's gonna. "That England's gonna throw it away / gonna blow it away".

With no burden of expectations, this team has given fans something to dream about.

Harry Maguire and Dele Alli both scored during the game securing England's place in the final four of the World Cup.

The Everton custodian was the match victor in England's first win in a World Cup penalty shoot out.

"For me, Uruguay have been excellent, I like Belgium, but I think it will be a Croatia, England semi-final, and then if England get though I fancy them, I really fancy them".

It's coming home, it's coming. Here's what "it's coming home" means and its origin. I have never in my life heard a phrase chanted, shouted, sung or proclaimed to quite the degree of ubiquity as these three words enjoy in England at the moment.

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

A file photo dated 18 June 1996 of former England midfielder Paul Gascoigne in action.

The number one comes 22 years after the song was released in 1996 to accompany the European Championships, which were that year held in England. The song was released in 1996, when England hosted the European Football Championship, to poke fun at the lack of global tournament success the country had experienced since winning the World Cup in 1966.

The famous song "Three Lions" has topped the United Kingdom charts 22 years after it's first release as the nation continues to be gripped by England's performance at the World Cup in Russian Federation.

A re-worked version with new new lyrics for the 1998 World Cup in France also spent three weeks at the summit. I actually watched England win the World Cup, I actually watched it.

In recent past, England only had World Cup appearances to forget.

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

Skinner, who formed part of a track originally produced for Euro '96 alongside comedy partner David Baddiel and the Lightning Seeds, is delighted to be back under the brightest of spotlights.
