Now the song, with its repeated chorus of "football's coming home", is a staple again, No. 5 this week on YouTube UK's top music videos chart with more than 2 million views on the day of England's last match.
Kane can normally be backed at 11/10 (2.10) to find the net, as he has done in three of his four appearances at the tournament, with the 7/5 (2.40) price the best in the industry at time of writing. England also have the World Cup's top-scorer in Harry Kane, who has six to his name so far.
A similarly masterful performance from the 32-year-old could spell the end of England's World Cup hopes in what is set to be a hard game for both sides. In the last few seasons he's always scored more than 25 goals and he's one of the best strikers in the world.
"It's a massive game for us, we all know that, but there's no need to make it bigger than what it already is".

"It's awesome what the team has achieved, not only this World Cup but in the first one they ever took part in in 1998 when they took out bronze". "I've played in a lot of teams where, b-- h--, we played Nuneaton Borough in the cup once and thought their centre-forward was Eusebio because we'd built him up that much in the pre-match briefing", Southgate said, in a sign that he was relaxed.
Croatia are a challenge for England.
The Three Lions are also the second-highest scorers at the World Cup with 11 goals. "We've talked about how important it is to have that spirit".
Southgate had all 23 of his players available with Jordan Henderson seemingly overcoming tight hamstring and Jamie Vardy, who was feared to have played this last game in Russian Federation with a groin injury.
