If you are a Brit who’s ever been inside 100 toes of a pub throughout an England match, the phrase “It’s coming home” might be indelibly etched into your consciousness. For the uninitiated, it is a line from England’s official soccer music Three Lions, launched again in 1996 for the Euro 96 soccer championship hosted in England. It’s just like the nation’s second nationwide anthem, and followers are now not content material merely bellowing it from vehicles or on crowded trains as they tuck into a giant bag of cans with the lads — it is now a meme, too.

As The Verge factors out, forward of England’s forthcoming match in opposition to Sweden, the web is awash with “It’s coming home” memes, thanks partially to a devoted Reddit thread (after all). From dubbed over Friends clips to scenes from The Matrix — even Alexa is aware of what’s up. When requested, “Alexa, is football coming home?” it replies “Fifty-two years of hurt hasn’t stopped me dreaming. I hope it doesn’t get to penalties again in the quarter final though, my circuits can’t take the stress.” Your circuits, Alexa, and the hopes and goals of followers across the nation.
