This is likely due to the fact that people don’t want to get stuck in traffic while their buddies are soaked in Carling in a pub somewhere, singing, ‘It’s coming home’ at the top of their lungs.
Gareth Southgate, team manager extraordinaire, strongly believes the lads playing in Russia this year can become immortal, just like the 1996 heroes.
After beating Sweden 2-0, England has finally reached the first semi-finals in a Would Cup tournament since Italia 90. The team secured their victory thanks to Maguire and Dele Alli scoring goals in both halves.
And the entire country believes the cup is finally “coming home”.
