Hatters boss backs Three Lions to win the World Cup

Hatters boss backs Three Lions to win the World Cup

But first, a bit of context.

Three Lions first hit the top of the UK Singles Chart when it was released in 1996, where it remained at No 1 for two weeks.

After England prevailed over Sweden for the World Cup semi-final, Prince William congratulated the team in a tweet from the official account of Kensington Palace. The following are our favourites thus far.

Baddiel and Skinner created Three Lions with The Lightning Seeds in 1996.

Frank Skinner was among the celebrities sharing their hopes and excitement ahead of England's World Cup game against Sweden.

Sam Williams, Ben's father, shared his gratitude with the Independent , saying, "They had already done more for Ben than we could ask for, so this was just such a kind and thoughtful gesture".

He said he was delighted with his own song's success.

It's February 2001 and England have just appointed Sven-Goran Eriksson as their manager after yet another dismal performance at a major football championships.

"The biggest thing about it is there's always euphoria over England and sometimes it's misplaced and sometimes it's over the top and being a Scot, or an Irishman or a Welshman that can rankle with you a little bit".

Set pieces have been more influential in this World Cup than any from recent years with 43% of all group stage goals coming from either free kicks, penalties, corners or throw-ins. Though perhaps that's getting ahead of things somewhat; nearly certainly, as the Lightning Seeds immortalized, the team will manage despite the confidence of the country behind them to make an error in judgement or tactics and get the boot before seizing the trophy. You have well and truly earned your place in the final eight of the #WorldCup and you should know the whole country is right behind you for Saturday!
