Jeremy Vine had panelists Nina Myskow and Lizzie Cundy at odds over whether football had “come home” to England despite the Three Lions losing the Euro 2020 final on Sunday. The lyrics from the hit English football anthem ‘It’s Coming Home’ become a mantra for football fans across the country as Gareth Southgate’s side managed to reach a major men’s tournament final for the first time in 55 years.
Lizzie Cundy told Jeremy Vine: “It kind of did come home because we haven’t been at a final….”
Myskow then interrupted her fellow panelist: “You are clutching at straws…
“I love you dearly but you are clutching at straws.”
Cundy continued: “Look Nina I love football and I feel this song track unites fans all over.

“It really does and it nearly did come home.
“It nearly did and I feel it did,” continued the TV presenter.
“And we have the most incredible young players and we could do it at the World Cup.
“Because we have got better and better each time.”

“They got on top and controlled the game, they demonstrated authority in the class that they have.
