“Football’s Coming Home?” A Handy Translation Guide for Croatians – and Other Languages
It’s coming home?
As the drama in the football world cup unfolds in Russia, and England fights its way back into relevance, an old (but gold) song has resurfaced: Three Lions by The Lightning Seeds – with a little help from David Baddiel and Frank Skinner. It includes, of course, the now famous chorus, “Football’s coming home”.
England lost, unfortunately, but we still wondered: how do you say ‘Football’s coming home’ in other languages?
