Many Irish will echo Gareth Southgate's attitude to 'football's coming home' song

How Southgate’s new approach unlocked a New England

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. Whether they were ravaging an IKEA store or filling the streets of Clapham, in south London, in one case crashing through a glass bus shelter, you can hear it in the background: "it's coming home, it's coming, football's coming home".

"England are a risky team in this competition".

Bloodwise, a British blood cancer research charity that has declared Wednesday as "Wear a Waistcoat Wednesday", called on supporters to show support for England by wearing a waistcoat and at the same time make a donation to the charity.

"I don't know what to say in response", he said at a news conference.

Sam Allardyce? He is more of a traditionalist, so under him England would have probably been knocked out on penalties in the quarter-finals, as is tradition.

As the nation waits with bated breath for tonight's 7pm kick-off, we've been speaking to fans in Ipswich on how they think Gareth Southgate's heroes will do. We are proud of the style they have played with. How will you be watching the game today?

Teenager Kylian Mbappe, who was not part of the France team two years ago, said even in his wildest dreams he would not have imagined reaching the World Cup final.

Gareth Southgate is proud of the way England fans have turned the Three Lions song into a source of renewed support after admitting he "couldn't listen to [it] for 20 years".

"For us as a team, yes, it's another chance to create a small piece of history".

This will be England's third appearance at the semi-final stage of the World Cup and their first in 28 years.

"Everyone was brilliant in the last game, that's what Gareth's done - he's got us working as a team".

"We have been one of the youngest teams in the tournament and least experienced in the tournament and we were never quite sure how far this team go".
