'It's Coming Home!' England fans get World Cup fever

  • England-Colombia-Moscow

But players and fans aren't the only ones that stand to benefit.

The song "Three Lions" by comedians David Baddiel and Frank Skinner and band The Lightning Seeds was originally written for the Euro '96 tournament which England hosted but left in the semi-finals after a penalty shootout against Germany. "Look back at both songs" week-by-week chart runs.

Unsurprisingly, Tuesday saw the biggest surge in interest for "Three Lions", with an epic tussle with Colombia leading to the song being streamed on Spotify over 450,000 times in a 24-hour period. The 1996 version also topped the iTunes chart following the match.

Under "Gate Closes" is 1966, noting the last year England's Three Lions last won it all, and the seat, 52H, notes the number of years it has been since that time. The original video has nearly 9 million YouTube views.

Meanwhile, online streaming service Spotify reports that Three Lions was streamed almost half a million times on England's last match day. Their luck changed however after a hard-fought game against Colombia.

A re-worked version of the song with new lyrics for the 1998 World Cup, Three Lions '98, spent three weeks at the summit. Together, the songs have a combined sales figure of more than 1.6 million.

That year also saw Italy fail to reach the tournament - a rare scenario that has played out again in the run-up to Russian Federation.

It's coming home. England's definitive football anthem, Three Lions, is set to return to the Top 40 on this week's Official Singles Chart.

If you should be in England during the World Cup, you will hear it uttered every few minutes as if it were a totally casual remark: "Oy, mate, it's coming home", one lad will say to another.
