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

Three Lions officially returns to the Official Charts after twenty years

It's not hard to figure out that it's World Cup related, but the origins of the saying actually go back over 20 years.

With the resurgence of the English team in the World Cup in Russian Federation, the song has come smashing back into relevance as England fans start to believe. "Aye. It's coming home", will come the unvarying response.

The song's title, "Three Lions", refers to the design depicted on English players' jerseys. The song's lyrics include lines like "England's gonna throw it away, gonna blow it away", "but all those oh, so nears wear you down through the years", and "thirty years of hurt".

He said he was delighted with his own song's success.

With no official song for England at this year's World Cup, football fans have re-embraced 1996 classic, Three Lions.

"Three Lions" is now charting at No. 24 on the Official UK Top 40 Singles Chart, tracked by the BBC.

England's Harry Kane celebrates after he scored his side's second goal against Panama on Sunday.

Tyler Honeycutt dies following gunfire exchange with police
Starting his career at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Honeycutt was drafted by the Sacramento Kings in 2011. "As they were communicating with the suspect he fired out of the residence and the officers returned fire", he said .

"But I think it's time we knock it off the number one spot with Three Lions", he said.

The ironic thing is that "Three Lions" is not a song about winning football, but about losing it - losing it in crushing, brutal, humiliating agony, in ways both unbearable and expected by anyone who admires this team.

Frank Skinner, David Baddiel with The Lightning Seeds have done it again.

"Confident, professional and a team that are playing for each other, playing for the manager and playing for our country..."

Indeed, when even the President of Russia, Vladimir Putin, is forced to admit it's coming home, then you know the battle is already won.

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