World Cup title like in flight
Either Gary Lineker and British Airways are now sure that HE is coming home. Where the amusing airline ticket on the Internet already earned a lot of mockery from the BA-damaged English: “If he comes home with British Airways, he will have at least delay.”
It might just bloody well come home. Incredible. And yes, it’s the real one. pic.twitter.com/GqZvGSFP5B

Schwof in the yard
The Buckingham Palace and the youngsters over at Kensington Palace are also in a world champion mood. What does that say? Queen to the rescue acts of Jordan Pickford? “God Save!” Even the “Changing of the Guard” sounded unfamiliar yesterday. Also excited: Robbie and Lewiswho are just about royale prominence.

Bands The Bands of the Guards Division played a very special rendition of the “Three Lions – It’s Coming Home” song on the forecourt of Buckingham Palace yesterday ahead of England’s World Cup quarter-final game with Sweden.

It’s been a Hard Day’s Night – for Ikea
Sweden furniture stores had little to laugh yesterday. England’s coach hero Gareth Southgate was watching him drag a trophy cupboard. And a few solemn English fans devastated the next Ikea. Mom mia.
It’s coming home …. pic.twitter.com/yQUxsVdrjT

England very confused
You can get confused by celebrating – at the Wimbledon anniversary of this 17-year-old glue. What was his name? Boris?

And her name is Sarah …
Very important yesterday: wedding videos. Half England apparently got married, and “It’s coming home” was played everywhere. Funniest Tweet, no photo: Guy needs to marry, but has tickets to play in Russia. Anyone who is interested and wants to jump in – their name is Sarah…
Weddings, airports, even under the sea!

My mate has two tickets for the England vs Sweden game on Saturday. He did not realize that it’s going to be on the same day as his wedding, so he can not go. If you’re interested and want to go to him, it’s at Cambridge and her name is Sarah

Statistically no question anymore
In any case nothing can go wrong for England. Probability for the title: 100 percent.
Studies show it is, in fact, coming home. pic.twitter.com/SWN4fjOOur

Next up: Croatia
Oh yes, there are semi-finals, too. There awaits Croatia after the penalty shot against hosts Russia. And, baby, even the Croats deliver wonderful party pictures.
Good night! 👏🏻 #CRO pic.twitter.com/wtY9HP6fzZ

Everything was better in the old days
On German fan miles the World Cup mood is not as intoxicating as in England. But we do what we can. And we have nice memories. 40 years ago – the Franz, the emperor, the world title. “Football is our life”, that would actually be a nice LEAD song of the day.
Germany in the # WM fever? Not more. Live from the Fanmeile in #Berlin. #SWEENG pic.twitter.com/eNrA0yH5Bj

The LEAD song of the day: England swings
Today but first England, how it swings and laughs, Roger Miller, from 1966. Was not there something, this year 1966 …?
