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

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

By watching any England game during this World Cup, it's clear to see that they've put a huge emphasis on their set piece ability.

Matt Yeo, who is marrying Sophie Wood - whom he says had to take a lot of convincing to accommodate those guests who are football fans as she is not one - has ordered a satellite dish for the post-ceremony reception.

The lyric is from the song Three Lions which was released in 1996 to mark England's participation in that year's European Championships, held in England.

Dorothy knows there's no place like home when it's coming home...

... And that is entirely thanks to "Three Lions".

It broke back into the Top 40 Official Singles Chart last Friday just before England beat Sweden 2-0 last Saturday to reach their first World Cup semi-final in 28 years.

They re-released it two years later and have enjoyed widespread success - unlike their team - since it's release.

Let's face it, it was only ever going to be a matter of time before Alan Partridge and his imaginary bass guitar got involved to help welcome football home.

The most erotically charged example of football coming home definitely came with a little help from the brilliant dole queue scene in "The Full Monty".

'I love football, but I just didn't really want it on my big day.

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

Without a doubt, the shining star in this England side, Harry Kane is the leading the race for the Golden Boot having scored 6 out of England's 11 goals so far in the competition.

With the resurgence of the English team in the World Cup in Russian Federation, the song has come smashing back into relevance as England fans start to believe.

But hey, you can still have some fun with misinformation, such as showing a bunch of English lads how to sing "Three Lions" in Irish.

"I don't know what it is, but sometimes I get a feeling for certain things".
