"Football, especially any game involving the England team, is not a game where you should count your chickens before they're hatched".

Multiple social media platforms are overflowing with memes, fan made videos, and tweets from England fans, cheering for their favorite team.

With the semi-finals of the World Cup 2018 fast approaching, it's safe to say that England has never been so united.

George Ezra is now sitting pretty at the top of the UK Singles Chart with his tune "Shotgun", but he doesn't want to stay there.

The Duke of Cambridge has sent a message to the England squad following England's 2-0 win against Sweden in the World Cup quarter-finals.

The track, which is on track to top the United Kingdom singles chart this week, was written by The Lightning Seeds and comedians Frank Skinner and David Baddiel and originally released for the 1996 Euros.

The song began with "It's coming home/It's coming home/It's coming/Football's coming home" and mentioned former England players Bobby Moore, Gary Lineker, Bobby Charlton and Nobby Stiles in the lyrics later.

Allen, Young scuffle briefly during NBA Summer League matchup
Trent was able to play 19 minutes for the Blazers, the most of any bench player and clearly took advantage of his opportunity. Like Trent Jr., Allen also scored 16 points in the game and also pulled down six rebounds, five assists, and three steals.

Three Lions has been buzzing around the office all summer.

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

Goalkeeper Jordan Pickford was the star of the show after doing three incredible saves to ensure England got their well-deserved clean sheet.

"For those attending a wedding service at 3pm, I'd strongly encourage you to make sure you are fully on-side with the happy couple and switch off your mobile phone in advance", she told the Daily Telegraph. But I think it's time we knock it off the number one spot with Three Lions.

"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". Fair, but we mustn't forget the line which follows: "I know that was then / but it could be again".

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.
