For the first time since 1990, England are on their way to the World Cup semifinal against Croatia after a 2-0 victory over Sweden.

Dubbing "Three Lions" over absolutely every movie ever made has proved to be a popular theme.

The number one comes 22 years after the song was released in 1996 to accompany the European Championships, which were that year held in England.

"Three Lions (Football's Coming Home)" was originally written for Euro 96 - the last time England qualified for the semi-finals of a major tournament - and hit the number one spot twice.

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

Meanwhile, it's been a good week for the inescapable "Three Lions" song, even if it has been ruined forever for those of us who appreciated its charm up until now.
