England will progress to the World Cup semifinals for the first time since 1990 after a comprehensive 2-0 victory against Sweden.
The Sunday Mirror paraphrased the song written when England hosted the 1996 European Championships, saying: "England are in the World Cup semi-finals - could this really be the summer football comes home?"
"Maguire has been a giant in both boxes right throughout the tournament", Southgate said. "I never thought I'd see my team walk out in the World Cup final but who knows, we could do it". Paulo Momesso, owner of Momesso's Restaurant in NDG's Little Italy said it's been tough to watch after Italy didn't qualify for the first time since 1958. "We've shown people around that Sweden is a team that people can count on. I wish them every bit of luck". "I do think [Harry] Kane can bring them to the final, because neither Russian Federation or Croatia are unbeatable teams for them". With lyrics like, "England's gonna throw it away, gonna blow it away", and "thirty years of hurt", the song was meant to lovingly poke fun at the bittersweet existence of British soccer fans, according to the Independent.
Harry Maguire opened up the scoring in the first half as England continued to excel on set pieces and free kicks.
"Against the odds, we came to the World Cup and we made it to the quarterfinals", Berg said. We've just got to keep doing what we are doing.
"I'm not sure he's always believed that but he's a super talent, a super player and his use of the ball is as good as any defender in the tournament".
"It's great to see all of the players sat with their families out there because they feel like they've been part of this in the last few weeks as well".
Following tension at Euro 2016, there were some fears that fans from several countries at the World Cup, including England, could get into violent clashes with each other and local hooligan groups.
