As the drama in the football world cup unfolded in Russia in 2018, and England fought its way back into relevance, an old (but gold) song has resurfaced: “Three Lions” by The Lightning Seeds – with a little help from David Baddiel and Frank Skinner. It includes, of course, the now-famous chorus, “Football’s coming home”.
England lost, unfortunately, but we still wondered: How do you say “Football’s coming home” in other languages?
