Hey, you, do you know what’s coming home? Football, if you overly-optimistic England fans are anything to go by. That’s because every single World Cup is the same: The fact that the potential of the England squad leading our nation to glory is about as likely as the chances of the Queen collaborating with Stormzy on his next album, doesn’t stop that crackle of anticipation we feel in our tummy when our team line up to sing (or, more accurately, badly lip sync) our national anthem. It gives us goosebumps every time.
The result? We take this opportunity to plaster our whole housing estates with so many St George’s flags that it looks this. We loudly express our disgust and anguish at every single referee’s decision that doesn’t benefit England. Hell, if it came down to a showdown between Egypt and England we would even consider not supporting Muslim legend Mo Salah. Yep, the World Cup brings the best out in us all – it brings people from all backgrounds, faiths and ethnicities together with a common purpose: to support England. And who knows maybe this year we could do it. 6-1!!!!!!
We love the World Cup, can you tell? So do a lot of people on Twitter, here’s what they’ve been saying.

The Opening Game Was Slightly Controversial
The World Cup is here and I feel like a kid on Christmas morning, even though Russia v Saudi Arabia promises to be the footballing equivalent of a Lynx Africa gift set.
