England played a foreign team in the ’66 semi, and now another foreign team in this year’s semi…It’s coming home


Comparisons between England’s last success in 1966, and this year’s tournament, all spookily seem to be pointing towards another World Cup win for England.

England fans have been quick to point out that both semi-final opponents, in ’66 Portugal and now Croatia in 2018, are both places that get very hot in the summer.

The England players wore socks as part of their kit in ’66, and again are wearing socks in 2018 – the list goes on.

‘It’s coming home, I can feel it, I just know,’ said England fan, Peter Thape.

‘Although, it’s possible that some Russian fans might have also felt that up until about half nine last night,’ added Thape.
