Reports have suggested that the FA will cancel “Three Lions” performances by England fans at major tournaments and consider alternatives. David Baddiel and Frank Skinner’s “Three Lions” has been beloved since Euro 1996 and has been sung by fans at every major England competition. But foreign countries think this song is a bit arrogant, so the FA plans to replace the song with Neil Diamond’s single “Sweet Caroline”.
As soon as the news came out, the FA immediately issued a statement to refute the rumor. They made it clear that there are no plans to make any changes to basic aspects of the England matchday experience. The official statement read: “Contrary to reports this morning, the FA will still be broadcasting the Three Lions in the main game at Wembley and has never intended to adjust this.”
“This song belongs to the fans, it is the hope of the fans to follow the England team. The FA asked us to play this song as one of the team anthems at the 2018 World Cup and last summer’s European Championship, and this is our future. s plan.”
