Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last three weeks (in which case, lucky old you) you’ll have noticed the UK is in the grip of World Cup fever.
Three words in particular are doing the rounds all over social media, 22 years since David Baddiel and Frank Skinner teamed up with the Lightning Seeds and first sang them.
Maybe you’re sick of the Three Lions’ It’s coming home refrain and never want to hear it ever again.
Or maybe you love the beautiful game so much, you’d go into Ikea ahead of the England vs Sweden match and place some very cheeky signs about the shop.
This is what a group of imaginative pranksters from a local radio station have done ahead in their local Ikea ahead of today’s quarter final game in Samara.
At first glance (and to a non Swedish speaker), the signs look perfectly legitimate.
But once you spell it out, it’s those three words again…
See what they did there?
The signs in question were put up in Gateshead IKEA.
Not only that, but they’ve all been priced at £19.66, which, as we all know, is a reference to the last time England won the World Cup.
The fake signs were placed on sofas, cookers, lights and tables in the store.
We’re currently the favourites to win with odds of 1/1.
Today’s match will be second time England have faced Sweden in the World Cup, with the most recent one being back in 206, when England was managed by Sven-Göran Eriksson.
In total, we have nine wins, seven defeats and eight draws against the Scandinavian nation.
