In a devastating blow to meme-makers everywhere, it turns out football is not coming home.

Despite the videos that have flooded Twitter over the last few weeks claiming it was indeed coming home, England were beaten 2-1 by Croatia in the World Cup semi-final in Moscow.

It left England fans absolutely gutted.

For pretty much everyone else, the schadenfreude was very, very real.

England fans were left to wonder if perhaps they were somehow responsible.

But when you think about it, what does “it’s coming home” really mean?

Anyway, as all England fans know, it definitely is still coming home.
