"It's Coming Home!" - Boy George performs Three Lions anthem in Texas

GETTYSkinner and Baddiel sang the 1996 England anthem with the Lightning Seeds

But one of its lyricists has begun to feel irritation with the way that the song is apparently overlooked at matches by the unofficial England team band.

They now face Croatia on Wednesday, which could mean they reach the final of the competition on Sunday.

England reached the World Cup finals only once before, back in 1966 when they hosted and won the Fifa World Cup.

"It's coming home" makes up the chorus of the 1996 song "Three Lions", by The Lightning Seeds.

Heartwarming footage posted online shows crowds at a Sikh wedding dancing to the Skinner and Baddiel hit while chanting "It's Coming Home" and waving glow sticks in the air - with at least one even wearing an England shirt. Even if that is a small stretch the Three Lions can nearly always guarantee that the English captain will be able to beat the opposing keeper when they need him most.

England football man gets tattoo on his bum. The iconic line in the song "It's Coming Home" is taking over the country.

Elon Musk Sends Team to Thailand to Help in Cave Rescue
The Thai Government said Mr Musk's team could help the rescue operation with location tracking, water pumping or battery power. The schoolchildren and their 25-year-old coach have been trapped in the Tham Luang cave in Thailand for nearly two weeks now.

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

In recent memory time and time again we have seen England be overhyped by their own media, leading to unnecessary added pressure on the squad which resulted in disappointment after disappointment for players and fans alike.

Both versions of Three Lions have sold a combined total of 1.6 million copies, making the song one of the most successful singles in the United Kingdom of all time.

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.

The football anthem climbed 32 places to the top of The Official Vodafone Big Top 40 following England's 2-0 win against Sweden.
