Three Lions tops Big Top 40 chart after England's win against Sweden

Three Lions is back where it belongs when it comes to the Official Vodafone Big Top 40.

"Three Lions" was written, with a mordant irony only possible in Great Britain, to celebrate the arrival of the European Championship in 1996 to England, the idea being that football would be thereby returning to the place of the modern game's birth.

Luton chief Nathan Jones has a sneaking suspicion that England will go on and win the World Cup this year.

"I don't know what you're saying in the dressing room to the players, but whatever you're saying, it's working".

Excitement reached fever pitch among a number of famous football fans, with the cast of West End musical Hamilton changing one of their songs to sing Three Lions. Demi Lovato from the top of the charts on Sunday evening.

And now, thanks to the meme, it's No. 1 on the charts in England!

"But I think it's time we knock it off the number one spot with Three Lions", he said.

Following England's incredible win against Sweden, the track by The Lightening Seeds & Baddiel and Skinner - which includes the iconic chant "It's coming home" - has smashed its way to number one.

"Confident, professional and a team that are playing for each other, playing for the manager and playing for our country..."

In a clip shared on Twitter, members of the cast were dressed in their costumes backstage, as they started to sing Hamilton song Yorktown (The World Turned Upside Down), before chanting: "Football's coming home, it's coming home".

Indeed, when even the President of Russia, Vladimir Putin, is forced to admit it's coming home, then you know the battle is already won.
