Jack Grealish and Bukayo Saka were snapped doing their best Harry Maguire impressions after England booked their place in the final of Euro 2020 with a 2-1 win over Denmark.
The pair were spotted chatting to family and friends at the conclusion of Wednesday night's semi-final and the footage immediately showed similarities with Maguire at the 2018 World Cup.
Three Lions centre-half Maguire was pictured chatting to fiancee Fern Hawkins after England's dramatic penalty shootout win over Colombia in the round-of-16 three years ago.
The seemingly innocuous picture was quickly turned into a now-infamous meme with fans posting the image and sharing their own versions of what the defender might have been saying.
After England beat Sweden to reach the semi-final of the World Cup, Maguire himself decided it was time to get in on the action.
He tweeted the picture with the caption: "Can you ask the neighbours to put the bins out on Monday? We’re not going home just yet."
Such is the popularity of the snap, when Grealish and Saka were caught chatting to members of the crowd after Wednesday's semi-final, fans jumped at the chance to create a new version of the Maguire meme.

ITV Football – whose coverage of the match was watched by a record-breaking 27.6million people – were among the first to provide their own take on the images.
They shared a video and tweeted: "Yeah, it's no biggie really – we've just helped @England reach a first major tournament final in 55 years."
One supporter quote-tweeted a post and said: "Love to see it this is the new Maguire meme."
Both players were involved in England's win over Denmark, with Saka starting the match before being withdrawn for Grealish, who was then later replaced by Kieran Trippier as the Three Lions looked to see out the tie.
