Here's your answer: It started with this kitschy but catchy song - Three Lions - put together by a trio (David Baddiel, Frank Skinner and The Lightning Seeds' Ian Broudie) for the European Championships in 1996 that were hosted by the UK.
The Official Vodafone Big Top 40, produced by Global, is said to be the only chart that reflects consumption of music in the United Kingdom in real time.
With the World Cup final taking place next Sunday, will Three Lions be announced as number one for a second week straight after Harry Kane lifts the trophy for England?
It returned to the top spot again in 1998 when it was released for the World Cup that year.
"I don't know what you're saying in the dressing room to the players, but whatever you're saying, it's working".
England have already made history during the World Cup, after beating Colombia during a penalty shootout.

When asked if Kane could challenge Ronaldo and Messi, Southgate said: "The world always changes, teams go through evolution". Brazil had hope of a comeback when Renato Augusto headed in after 76 minutes but it was not enough for the five-time winners.
That faith has manifested as one enthusiastic refrain: "It's coming home".
And now, thanks to the meme, it's No. 1 on the charts in England!
"I don't know what it is, but sometimes I get a feeling for certain things. Coming. Home", and the third showed him grinning as Skinner planted a delighted kiss on his cheek.
Talk about spreading the England cheer on the other side of the pond! Before England's game against Belgium last week I heard it played, sung and screamed three dozen times; in the hours afterward, I heard it performed at karaoke.
