TESCO are being ridiculed by their rivals after trying to incorporate their name into the phrase “It’s Coming Home”. 
 
The supermarket chain joined in the excitement on Twitter yesterday ahead of England’s Euro 2020 semi final against Denmark.
 
They tweeted: “For anyone who ever wondered about the origin of our name… #ItsComingHome”
