The indomitable Three Lions, by comedians David Baddiel and Frank Skinner and rock band The Lightning Seeds, is the go-to chant.

And it is closely followed by the reworked versions of Atomic Kitten’s Whole Again and Sweet Caroline, by Neil Diamond.

He said: “I was going to play Vindaloo, but went with my gut.
