‘It’s coming home, it’s coming home, it’s coming… Football’s coming home’
One game stands between England and the World Cup Final. It’s almost unbearable. The country is hooked on World Cup fever and have adopted one song in the process. It’s safe to say Three Lions by the Lighting Seeds, comedians Frank Skinner and David Baddiel has gone viral.

The Friends one
The song Three Lions was originally created in the 90’s, so what better way to honour it than combining with a scene from Friends.

There’s nothing about this England team that isn’t making us shreek! But we certainly were crying with laughter with this theme.
