Two comedians, Frank Skinner and David Baddie along with the band Lightning Seeds, penned the lyrics of the single, "The Three Lions: It's Coming Home".

Of course, the phrase "it's coming home" refers to the fact that soccer in its modern format was invented in England.

But England now return, with the pride of the nation restored - Southgate returns with the trust that he is the man not only to guide this squad but English football as a whole. It is an anthem and has followed the team for a long time, but involved some hard moments as well.

That is perhaps unsurprising given his missed penalty provided the final nail in England's Euro '96 coffin, and remains England's last act in the last four of a tournament until kick-off on Wednesday night. "So for me it has a slightly different feel", Southgate told reporters on Tuesday, before adding: "But it's nice to hear people are listening to it again".

"Our country has been through some hard moments recently in terms of its unity, and sport has the power to do that (unite people)", he said.

"It was a long time ago, so not too many of us can remember that far back", said midfielder Jordan Henderson, born in 1990.

So, while many will look at his attacking prowess from set-pieces, and his ability to score, it's Stones defensive play that should see him gain significant praise, and he has most certainly been one of England's unsung heroes. "All these words from them we take, we were reading and we were saying 'ok, today we will see who will be exhausted'". "That is unbelievable, but I think it's time we knock it off the number one spot with Three Lions".

"It's not the same if you play 90 minutes twice and 120 minutes twice, but I believe we've had ample time to recover and we're professional enough to know who needs what in terms of recovery", he said. We have emerging leaders, that team had six captains at their clubs.

Midfielder Jordan Henderson said: "It's a special feeling to know people back home and here are enjoying the experience as much as we are".

"I don't want them to lose, I don't want it to be a draw".
