If you thought the England fans could not be any more daft invading an IKEA after the win against Sweden, think again because these lads were tricked into singing the Irish Republican motto, ‘Tiocfaidh Ár Lá’.
Many of us are fed up with the whole ‘Football’s coming home’ craze that’s sweeping England, so it’s only right that we have the craic with them while they’re up on their high horse.
To provide some context, the motto is ‘Our day will come’ in Irish, meaning that Northern Ireland will one day be freed from British occupation. One can only wonder what type of reaction these confused fans would get if they were saying this on the streets of Belfast or Derry!
Amid the seemingly inescapable swarm of England fans singing this mediocre song, Irish, Scottish, and Welsh people have been desperately wishing for their downfall, but it looks as though their cockiness will be around for some time.

Even though England fans tend to be incredibly full of themselves, it’s their spirit for the game that has helped ‘Three Lions’ reach the top of the charts, so fair play to Baddiel, Skinner and the Lightning Seeds for that one.
I will say though, these guys were certainly very passionate about the cause for Irish unity, albeit inadvertently, and for that, they’re in the good books. Once we get closer to a referendum on a United Ireland, I’m sure we’ll all be saying it’s coming home.
