Watch: England’s 1966 World Cup Omens

England shouldn’t have anything to fear in tonight’s semi-final with Croatia, it’s written in the stars… apparently.

You can forget Harry Kane’s goals, the set-piece routines and Gareth Southgate’s waistcoat. You can even forget stats like Jordan Henderson going 30 games unbeaten in an England shirt because these creepy parallels between 2018 and 1966 are the real reasons why football is coming home on Sunday.

Not the superstitious type? Perhaps some mathematical symmetry featuring Harry Kane and Bobby Moore will change your mind?
