Nothing Says 'It's Coming Home' More Than Ian Wright's Actions On An American Sports Show
Ian Wright did the unthinkable. He was supposed to a pundit for a sports show in America but - because football is basically coming home now - he left midway to go for a pint.
The Arsenal legend seemingly didn't stay true to his contract and decided to up and leave halfway through the show, leaving the presenters bemused about what was going on.
I'm sorry @FOXSoccer. I'll make it up to you. I had to leave :grimacing: my fellow countrymen will understand :flag_black::beer: @England pic.twitter.com/dppa1LYdL4

We feel that every World Cup, our emotions run up and we start to really believe that something might just happen. But what is usually the case is that our dreams are then promptly trampled on, and the whole idea of us bringing it home dissipates.
But no. This time, something special is really happening: England are in the semi-finals, the first time that has happened since the great Sir Bobby Robson was boss and Gazza was playing.
England just have to beat Croatia and they'll be in the World Cup final. It almost doesn't seem real.
They will face either Belgium or France: teams that are certainly tough, but sides that you really feel England could end up beating.
This World Cup is the best one in a very long time. We all have fond memories of 2002 - but the tournaments in Germany and South Africa just didn't cut it.
We're all feeling it, Ian.
