Prince William's heartfelt message to England squad after World Cup dreams end

12 July 2018

Neville gave an optimistic outlook on England's prospects after they exceeded expectations at the World Cup, and said Southgate's men were now better equipped for high-pressure situations. Either football is one step closer to "coming home" for England, or, as the first verse tells it, "Everyone seems to know the score, they've seen it all before/ They just know, they're so sure/ That England's gonna throw it away, gonna blow it away". However, now they have been dumped out, some fans are feeling that all so familiar sense of disappointment in the national team, who have only ever reached one final of a major tournament, and that was back in 1966.

"We did say before the game that these lads will have to take the opportunity now as it may never happen again". We want this to be a family-friendly occasion and a chance for England fans young and old to show the positive spirit of football to the country and the world.

Meanwhile, England manager Gareth Southgate has admitted he couldn't listen to Three Lions for 20 years.

The infectious song, with its chorus "It's coming home, it's coming home, it's coming, football's coming home", was written by pop star Ian Broadie and comedians David Baddiel and Frank Skinner ahead of England's hosting of Euro 96.

England manager Gareth Southgate. It has a slightly different feel for me, but it's nice to hear people enjoying it again.

"I would just walk out of the room, it is an anthem and has followed the team for a long time but involved some hard moments as well".

Gary Neville believes England's Harry Kane was playing with an injury throughout the World Cup knockout stages after the striker misfired in the semi-final defeat to Croatia.
