This years Fifa World Cup has been an incredible one so far for England who, not only won their first EVER world cup game on penalties, but are now through to the semi-finals for the first time in 28 years and are ready to face Croatia tomorrow for a place in the final. Go on lads!
So what’s our actual chances then? Well we know this is the 8th time England and Croatia have met, with England winning 4 of the previous games, drawing with them once and Croatia winning twice. So, pretty good odds I’d say. NetBet are touting England to win with odds of 19/2 for a 2-1 victory. Could it be coming home? We bloody hope so!!
To get you fired up for the game, here are 5 of the greatest English football anthems!
New Order Feat John Barnes – World In Motion
This 1990 classic was released to celebrate England’s appearance at Italia 90′ and features a whole host of football greats and the sickest rap verse ever delivered by a footballer ever. Barnes is a demon!
Ant & Dec – On The Ball
In 2002, Ant & Dec were ‘Ready To Rumble’ with their own World Cup song, complete with catchy group chant and slightly rubbish trumpet line. Guaranteed crowd pleaser though!
Liverpool FC – Anfield Rap
Ok, so this one isn’t a world cup song but it’s still an English football classic. It’s so rubbish it’s actually brilliant. I think we need a 2018 remix lads, make it happen!
Dizzee Rascal and James Corden – Shout For England
Dizzee tries to out do John Barnes’ rap for the 2010 World Cup while James Corden gets his shout on!
The Lightening Seeds Feat Baddiel and Skinner
Three Lions (Football’s Coming Home)
Do we even need to say anything?
ITS COMING HOME!!!!! IT’S ACTUALLY COMING HOME!
