'Three Lions' roars up charts as England prepare for World Cup semi

Share

England footballing icon Paul Gascoigne has told the current Three Lions crop to "watch each other's back" as they prepare for their World Cup semi final clash with Croatia.

Three Lions was originally released in 1996 to coincide with the European Championship held in England, in which the team also reached the semi-final stage.

An hour later when fans were still in the stadium and singing their hearts out, Southgate returned to the pitch and waved his arms as if conducting an orchestra.

For the first time since 1990, England are on their way to the World Cup semifinal against Croatia after a 2-0 victory over Sweden.

It's coming home - to the top of the charts that is.

Set pieces have been more influential in this World Cup than any from recent years with 43% of all group stage goals coming from either free kicks, penalties, corners or throw-ins.

In 2018, right at this moment, "Three Lions" is all-pervasive on the English airwaves, utterly unavoidable at bars and pubs, pumped out virtually on repeat before, during and after English World Cup matches. Fair, but we mustn't forget the line which follows: "I know that was then / but it could be again".
