It’s coming home?
As the drama in the football world cup unfolds in Russia, and England fights 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?
Lingoda is a pretty multi-lingual company as you’d expect.
So here is “Football is coming home” in all the languages represented in the Lingoda team
English: Football’s coming home
Croatian: Nogomet se vraca kuci
Russian: Football edet domoi
Irish: Tá sé ag teacht abhaile
Spanish: El fútbol vuelve a casa
Italian: Il calcio ste tornendo e case
Latvian: Futbols nàx màjàs
Belorussian: Football yetze dadomo
Polish: pijkanozna wraca do domu
French: Le foot rentre à la maison
German: Der Fußball kommt heim
Swedish: Fotboll kommer hem
Kannada: Football namma manealli
Dutch: Voetbal komt thuis
Now, let’s see if football is really coming home. Good luck England in bringing football home. Good luck Croatia in keeping football away!
