The umpteenth re-release of Three Lions is a throwback to the, erm, innocent days of Fantasy Football League—the show where David Baddiel wore blackface and stuck a pineapple on his head to play Nottingham Forest striker Jason Lee. The comedian has since apologised to Lee in person, which makes 'Three Lions (It's Coming Home for Christmas)' a little easier to swallow.
Plenty of heart's gone into the music video at least, which contrasts Baddiel, Frank Skinner, and Lighting Seeds frontman Ian Broudie with their younger selves. Christmas jumpers, carol singers, and well-chosen clips of England's Euro 2022 win also make it stand out from previous iterations.
