​Jesse Lingard's Mum Surprises Him After Victory Against Sweden

While we'd imagine having the chance to compete at the World Cup would be nothing short of absolutely amazing, it's easy to forget that there are at least a few downsides.

Above all else, there's the fact that the tournament goes on for a month - well, if you're still in it, that is - which means a long time away from home and your friends and family.

England's Jesse Lingard had posted a photo of himself holding his phone after beating Colombia, captioning it: "No mum, I'm not coming home. It's..."

He was, of course, referencing the revived 'Three Lions' song that's become something of an unofficial anthem for this year's tournamnent.

But in an even more poignant twist, he has since followed that tweet up with another, which features a video of him hugging his mum after England beat Sweden 2-0 on Saturday.

The caption read: "Because I said we ain't going home she came here. Love you."

However tough you are, you can't admit that's pretty bloody sweet - as proven by the 1.72 million views it's already racked up. Yeah, we know, you're welling up cause of all this rubbish hayfever, aren't you?

Mind you, as moved as we are, we're all hoping that the poor LAD won't be able to go home just yet. He's got to get us through Wednesday's semi-final against Croatia first.

Meanwhile, over on Harry Maguire's Twitter feed, things are less sentimental and more about #banter.

Harry was snapped chatting to a slightly disinterested looking woman in the crowd, following England's dramatic penalty shootout win over Colombia. The woman in question is Fern Hawkins, his girlfriend, and the moment is probably perfectly normal, but the photo captured a moment where she didn't look particularly up for chatting about football.

As we all know, that's all it takes. The internet got stuck in and went with it, and before we knew it ol' Hazza was meme gold.

Yup, even teammate Kyle Walker got involved with a post that's now been retweeted over 70,000 times.

Luckily, Harry's seen the funny side and had his own go at captioning himself. Re-posting the picture, he wrote: "Can you ask the neighbours to put the bins out on Monday? We're not going home just yet."
