Football 'definitely' coming home, Prince Harry predicts on Irish trip

It is coming home? Odds on England World Cup win shorten after Sweden win

It may be coming home to No 1 on the United Kingdom singles charts but the coach of the England's national football team, Gareth Southgate, has revealed that he used to detest the popular Three Lions anthem.

Houghton, who also captains City, says she has been really impressed with the England side and in particular, their manager Southgate.

Croatia have sacked one of their coaching staff, Ognjen Vukojevic after he posted a pro-Ukraine video following the penalty shootout win over Russian Federation in the World Cup quarter-finals. Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.

"They'll be the best team we've played in terms of what they're capable of doing with the ball, and what their individuals are capable of, definitely", he said (via Sky Sports). "We'll be there and it's a once in a lifetime opportunity seeing them in the World Cup".

The win led to a lot of off-key renditions of God Save The Queen and Three Lions (Football's Coming Home) in pubs across both England and Australia. "It's because it's coming home".

"I've got a amusing feeling that the momentum is so good, and, you know, especially now that we're all going to turn up with special Gareth waistcoats, and that can only help can't it", said fan Lee Walkup, 50.

Southgate's side have been buoyed by more than just an anthemic pop song, though.

England will play France if they reach the final and World Cup-winning goalkeeper Gordon Banks was in confident mood about the team's chances of victory.

"I couldn't listen to it for 20 years, frankly", said Southgate.

"It has a slightly different feel for me, but it's nice to hear people enjoying it again".

He said: "I'm not surprised that Croatia have identified Raheem as a key player. It's up to us now which games we play in".

"I don't know what will happen if we win, probably nobody will go to work".

Croatia finished top of Group D by beating Nigeria 2-0, Argentina 3-0 and Iceland 2-1, but needed penalty shootouts to get past Denmark in the last 16 and Russian Federation in the quarter-finals.
