England fans tricked into singing 'Tiocfaidh Ár Lá' instead of 'Three Lions'

GETTYThe duo took to social media to show their elation

The song was created, with the help of comedians David Baddiel and Frank Skinner, to commemorate England hosting the 1996 European Football Championship, its first hosting gig since the 1966 World Cup, according to the BBC.

Three Lions by Baddiel, Skinner & The Lightning Seeds is the brand new number one on The Official Vodafone Big Top 40.

Since it first topped the charts 22 years ago, the song become the soundtrack for England fans at a string of worldwide tournaments, including this year's World Cup.

England will play Croatia on Wednesday for a place in the World Cup final.

The Wolf of Wall Street knows a sure thing when he sees it...

... And yet, as I sat in Frank Skinner's living room watching England play Sweden - the team confidence and spirit so clearly there, Harry Maguire's and Dele Alli's headers sealing the day, Jordan Pickford a god among men - I started to experience a odd new feeling. I actually watched England win the World Cup, I actually watched it.

From countless memes on social media to 'Three Lions (Football's Coming Home)' topping the United Kingdom iTunes chart, the words "It's Coming Home" have been a staple part of England's celebrations.

And now, thanks to the meme, it's No. 1 on the charts in England!

Talk about spreading the England cheer on the other side of the pond!

Jones said: "I think he's taken to the job seamlessly". Though perhaps that's getting ahead of things somewhat; nearly certainly, as the Lightning Seeds immortalized, the team will manage despite the confidence of the country behind them to make an error in judgement or tactics and get the boot before seizing the trophy. Fair, but we mustn't forget the line which follows: "I know that was then / but it could be again".

In a clip shared on Twitter, members of the cast were dressed in their costumes backstage, as they started to sing Hamilton song Yorktown (The World Turned Upside Down), before chanting: "Football's coming home, it's coming home". That "could", so tentative and clouded by doubt, says it all.
