  • Russia v Croatia – FIFA World Cup 2018 – Quarter Final – Fisht Stadium

The song had originally been released for the Euro 96 tournament held in England, where the team reached the semi-final stage, and was sung by English comedy duo David Baddiel and Frank Skinner with Brit pop band Lightning Seeds.

In Frome someone got creative with the town signs and changed them to "It's Coming Home".

"The team is getting better and better with every game and that was the same with us in 1966 which is why I'm quietly optimistic", he said.

One defeat against a second-rate Belgium XI has tarnished an otherwise ideal record for Southgate's side, while England have avoided perennial powerhouses Spain, Germany and Brazil.

Even if England reach Sunday's final, neither William nor Prime Minister May will attend the match because of Britain's diplomatic boycott of the tournament over a nerve agent attack in England this year.

"I think the smart way he dresses makes it look like he is taking it seriously".

"They've seen we've got good lads who are incredibly proud to play, and are playing in a slightly different style to the one we've seen for a few years - playing with confidence on a big stage".

Kris McCarthy, operations manager, said: "We know when the team gets that far a lot of people that aren't as interested in it get interested and get caught up in the atmosphere". The AA motoring organization predicted that by the time the game started, roads would be quieter than on Christmas Day.

If you've been following the World Cup, particularly England's performance in it, perhaps you've heard the chant: "It's coming home, it's coming, football's coming home".

"I don't know to what extent you see the level of celebrations in Croatia".

"We want people to celebrate and enjoy themselves but not at the expense of law-abiding fans and emergency services' resources". We have emerging leaders, that team had six captains at their clubs.
