England have reached the semi-finals of a World Cup for the first time since 1990 – and the entire country has caught ‘It’s Coming Home’ fever.
What started out as a joke for many has become more of an unwavering belief as England have progressed in Russia, but whatever happens, the social media game has already been won.
Here are some of the best memes that have been flying around over the past few weeks.
Different, but brilliant.

Possibly one of the funniest yet. And slightly scary for our inner child who remembers watching this for the first time.

This just about sums it up. The realisation that you’ve heard Three Lions more in the past two weeks than ever, but also that it’s f*cking brilliant.

There are a lot of goalkeepers on this list.
Can they sustain their good starts?
There are only 12, but how many can you remember?
Luca Toni knew what jeans to wear even at 38.
You can take the boy out of Arsenal, but…
We want everything revealed like this now.
Gareth Barry is No.1, but can you name the rest?
Paco Alcácer’s record is frankly ridiculous.
Dániel Sallói knows what to do at crucial moments.
Conor Hourihane is football’s best tribute act.
