Can Three Lions bring football back to the top of the singles chart?

The Official Charts Company Midweek Sales Flash is in, and it seems football may really be coming home in the singles chart.

Yes, David Baddiel, Frank Skinner and The Lightning Seeds’ 1996 hit Three Lions is back at No.1.

Having racked up 31,167 sales so far this week (including 2,570,301 streams), it’s out in front of George Ezra’s Shotgun (26,143 sales) and Clean Bandit and Demi Lovato’s Solo (17,706 sales). Years & Years hit No.4 with If You’re Over Me (15,444 sales) and Drake completes the Top 5 with Don’t Matter To Me (feat. Michael Jackson), which has 14,866 sales.

Years & Years are going well in the albums list too, with Palo Santo entering at No.1 on 12,305 sales so far. The Greatest Showman OST is at No.2 on 9,806 sales. Drake’s Scorpion (9,357 sales), George Ezra’s Staying At Tamara’s (8,287 sales) and Tom Grennan’s Lighting Matches (7,309 sales) complete the Top 5.

Vindaloo, by Fat Les, and New Order's World In Motion also see a return to the charts at No.s 28 and 34 respectively.
