The build-up to tonight's semi-final, the first England have been in since 1990, has seen Great Yarmouth Borough Council again raise the England flag at the town hall.

Fans have sung the lyrics from the stands in Russian Federation, while the circulation of social media memes using the music has even led to the creation of the hashtag '#itscominghome'.

Many fans in Russian Federation have since been asking for selfies and autographs from Rowe in the build-up to tonight's semi-final against Croatia.

Indeed, the former defender is thrilled to witness the country unite behind his side during a tumultuous political period, with Brexit causing uncertainty and division across much of England and Britain.

Speaking to Sky News 22 years on, the ex-footballer said: "Football's coming home, I couldn't listen to it for 20 years, frankly". Our supporters have had a long time of suffering in terms of football.

"So it's great that another country can squeeze in, same as Croatia".

Remember Gareth Southgate In This Pizza Hut Advert?
England's dream that "it's coming home" continues, with Dele Alli scoring a second-half victor . But Southgate revealed he could not listen to it for many years.


England target World Cup final but gifted Croatia stand in the way
Ask Justin Timeberlake, and he'll tell you the same thing. "You are just nitpicking at my poor performances". His teammates play at top-drawer clubs.


Teenager who posted dance videos on social media…
Earlier this year, a city official in Mashhad was arrested after footage emerged of men and women dancing at a mall in the city. Several people on social media have spoken up in support of Hojabri, and against the overall situation in Iran.


Southgate added: "That ended in disappointment and it is nice to be able to put a different frame on it now".

"Our country has been though some hard moments in terms of unity and sport has the power to do that, and football in particular", he said. "We can feel the energy and feel support from home and it's a very special feeling, a privilege for us".

And they've revealed that since the showpiece began, sales of waistcoats have doubled due to people wanting to channel their inner Southgate.

Have you gone to work today in a waistcoat? They've scored two goals in every game [except against Denmark in the round of 16].

We're not sure what to make of it!
