Never Before! Now England Fans Can Now Sing “It’s Coming Home” Confidently

For sure, it’s really coming home both the Champions League and Europa League trophy. Will this fit happen yet again in the coming 2019/20 Season by the English sides or their Spanish, Germans or French counterparts? Well as we all know for we lovers of football, this is why we love the game. So much turns, twists and emotions, but as for this season is concerned guess we all can settle for the English Premiership as being the best in the world and kudos to the four teams (Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool & Tottenham) representing in both finals this season.

At the last edition of the world biggest footballing event (FIFA World Cup) which was held in Russia in the summer of 2018, there was a general feeling particularly amongst the English fans that “it’s coming home” meaning; the world cup trophy is coming back to England.

Historically, football began in 1863 in England but the last time the English senior national team won the world trophy was in 1966. So much for their enthusiasm they crashed out of the tournament at the semi-finals and football wasn’t going to return home at least not until the next four years when the tournament holds in Qatar.

Well, the world cup might not be coming home for the English fans but something is sure coming home this time. The prestigious European club competition (The UEFA Champions League) for the 2018/19 Season. The competition has seen the Spanish teams dominated in the last few years, as Real Madrid also won the last three.

This year’s finals which coincidentally will be held in the Spanish capital of Madrid at the prestigious Wanda stadium home of Atletico Madrid, will see Liverpool FC and Tottenham Hotspurs two English teams face off on the Spanish turf for the club’s continental trophy.

In same way, the other club’s continental competition (The UEFA Europa League) finals for the 2018/19 Season will be played amongst two English teams in Arsenal FC and Chelsea FC. The last winner of the competition was Atletico Madrid from Spain.

The last time there was an all English final, which was also the very first time was in the 2008 Season where Manchester United played against Chelsea FC in the Champions League final in Moscow, Russia. A period seen as one of the best season for English teams in the European competition, fast forward 11 years after there was even much more an intriguing fit done by the teams from England.

Never before as it happened in the history of the European club competition where four teams from the same country will be playing each other in both the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League finals in the same season. This has gone far to quash the ever repeating debate and question of; which league is the best in the world?

With the form of dominance in this season’s continental tournament, we can confirm the technicality and quality of the English Premier League where the top teams as contested fiercely amongst each other locally, which afterwards has rubbed off and shown in their performances externally in Europe.

For sure, it’s really coming home both the Champions League and Europa League trophy. Will this fit happen yet again in the coming 2019/20 Season by the English sides or their Spanish, Germans or French counterparts? Well as we all know for we lovers of football, this is why we love the game. So much turns, twists and emotions, but as for this season is concerned guess we all can settle for the English Premiership as being the best in the world and kudos to the four teams (Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool & Tottenham) representing in both finals this season.
