"It's coming home" has been the battle cry of England and their fans in this 2018 World Cup.

The song tapped into the Britpop phenomenon that was massive at the time, and is an anthem that both acknowledges the history of the England team and yearns for future success.

Two other football songs are also set to re-enter the top 40, with Fat Les' 1998 song Vindaloo at 28 and New Order's 1990 number one hit World In Motion at 34.

One of the biggest selling United Kingdom singles ever, it was originally released in 1996, when England hosted the European Championships, and soundtracked an ecstatic summer that ended all too soon in semi-final defeat against Germany.

A football-mad couple paid £750 to have a 72-inch TV installed at their wedding reception - so their guests could watch the England vs. Sweden match during their celebrations. And that is entirely thanks to "Three Lions".

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.

Frank Skinner, David Baddiel with The Lightning Seeds have done it again. Here's what "it's coming home" means and its origin.

"Not just the players around the camp, the media, the pundits, I think everyone genuinely wants him to do well and that's as much to do with the man as it is to do with England being their country".

With the World Cup final taking place next Sunday, will Three Lions be announced as number one for a second week straight after Harry Kane lifts the trophy for England?

"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".

As reported in Metro, Jason said, "I was having dinner with my mum when a work mate rang me, we were talking about football and he said to me that I would never get that tattooed on my bum in a million years".
