England won a World Cup penalty shoot-out for the first time ever against Colombia to confirm that football is definitely coming home in 2018.
Supporters lost their collective minds when Eric Dier stepped up to fire Gareth Southgate’s men into the quarter-finals, sparking even more talk of It Coming Home on social media.
Memes continued to fly around regarding the return of football to its country of origin, and even Jesse Lingard got involved. Here’s the best of the best.
You know it’s coming home when the actual players are tweeting about it coming home.
No mum, I’m not coming home. It’s… pic.twitter.com/VdFHVoEfTI
