If you're a Brit who's ever been within 100 feet of a pub during an England match, the phrase "It's coming home" will be indelibly etched into your consciousness. For the uninitiated, it's a line from England's official football song Three Lions, released back in 1996 for the Euro 96 football championship hosted in England. It's like the country's second national anthem, and fans are no longer content simply bellowing it from cars or on crowded trains as they tuck into a big bag of cans with the lads -- it's now a meme, too.
As The Verge points out, ahead of England's forthcoming match against Sweden, the internet is awash with "It's coming home" memes, thanks in part to a dedicated Reddit thread (of course). From dubbed over Friends clips to scenes from The Matrix -- even Alexa knows what's up. When asked, "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 dreams of fans around the country.
