Here's Why English Soccer Fans Keep Chanting 'It's Coming Home'

Here's Why English Soccer Fans Keep Chanting 'It's Coming Home'

To mark the monumental occasion on Wednesday, which is England's first World Cup semi-final since 1990, the iconic Black Prince statue in City Square is now holding an England flag and its very own football. If there is no victor after 120 minutes the tie is decided on penalties. It's been a odd campaign for France, who looked subdued all through the group phase.

"We're estimating eight to 10,000 - it's really hard to tell because when people take direct routes it's obviously easy to count them but people might come by diverse routes, there are quite a lot of expats here and other fans staying out". The last two rounds I picked against England and they won.

The victor of the encounter will face either France or Belgium in the World Cup final.

And the presence of French World Cup victor Thierry Henry on the Belgian coaching staff as one of Martinez's assistants adds extra spice to the occasion.

Council leader Councillor Georgia Gould, who supports QPR, told the New Journal: "England's march towards the World Cup final continues and we're going to cheer the team on here in Camden with big screens at two great locations".

The Three Lions manager has sported a navy blue Marks & Spencer one throughout England's run to the World Cup semi-finals in Russian Federation, which has led to increased sales and more Google searches for the item back home. The attacker has been crucial to Belgium's run to the semi-finals, providing two goals and two assists for his side.




Croatia did get some revenge for that by ensuring England failed to qualify for Euro 2008 in November 2007 with a 3-2 win at Wembley Stadium.

Belgium coach Roberto Martinez was also proud of his players despite the defeat. It cruised through the group stage, then almost got eliminated by Japan.

Prediction A very tough one to call. At half time and the end of the game there were England supporters asking for photos and videos.

A narrow 1-0 win for England, probably from another set-piece, puts Gareth Southgate's men in the final.

The 51-year-old coach, who has only been in charge of the national side since October, was asked about England's strengths and weaknesses and said: "I wouldn't say there are any glaring weaknesses - they are in the semi-finals, that says it all".
