What are the lyrics to the new Gareth Southgate chant sweeping the nation?

"Football's coming home again..."

It’s pretty obvious who the real stars of this World Cup have been.

Atomic Kitten.

In 2001, the darlings of English pop music released ‘Whole Again’ and the tune has been stuck in all of our heads ever since.

It’s called fashion, look it up

It’s called fashion, look it up

With World Cup fever at an all-time high, England fans have re-appropriated the lyrics to the catchy banger in honour of Gareth Southgate.

Looking back on when we first met

I cannot escape and I cannot forget

Southgate you’re the one

You still turn me on

Football’s coming home again
