“It’s coming home” tweets are the order of the day as England prepare to face Colombia in tonight’s Round of 16 game at the Spartak Stadium.

The phrase of course comes from the immortal Euro ’96 song “Three Lions”, written by Ian Broudie of The Lightning Seeds along with Frank Skinner and David Baddiel.

Although belief is growing among Three Lions fans, Colombia will provide a stern test with a quarter-final against Switzerland or Sweden at stake.

Given England have failed to win a major tournament knockout match for twelve years, these tweets are peppered with no little irony.

Now enjoy the best “it’s coming home” tweets and jokes:

Just took 93yr Mum to breakfast, she’s registered blind. In a very loud voice she said, “It’s coming home.” A cheer went up from waiting diners

on the train, a couple and their 1yr old sat opposite. The baby starts making a noise, the dad says to everyone “ssshhhh please be quiet”
The mum says “he’s gonna say his first words!” Everyone is silent and the baby says “it’s coming home” the whole train erupts into song

Popped out on my bike this morning, man drives past with an #England flag out his window. A thumbs up from me, and a beep of the horn in return from him.

It's at that moment, we both knew that it's coming home #ENGPAN #WorldCup pic.twitter.com/2VR60w7M3T

I refuse to even entertain the notion that it’s not coming home, if it doesn’t come home it’s because you talked it down.
