England fans can celebrate with a free drink if the Three Lions score against the Netherlands in the hotly anticipated semi-final on July 10. Greene King pubs across the city and country will be giving out complimentary pints once the final whistle has been blown.

To claim their freebie fans have to say: "England scored, please pour." Following the success against Switzerland in the quarter-final with Trent Alexander-Arnold bagging the winning penalty, Gareth Southgate’s men will be hoping to move one step closer to bringing football home with a win on Wednesday.

Having scored five goals in the tournament so far, with Jude Bellingham having scored two of those, the odds for free pints are looking good for the nation, but as always in sport, nothing is guaranteed.

The offer entitles pubgoers to one free pint of either Greene King IPA, Yardbird Pale Ale, Old Speckled Hen, Old Golden Hen, House Bitter, False Nine, Level Head Session IPA, Flint Eye Dry-Hopped Lager, Hazy Day Hazy IPA, Prior Life All Day IPA, Ice Breaker Pale Ale or a soft drink alternative.

Participating pubs include Via Fossa, the Bell Inn, Old Dog and Partridge, and Tap and Tumbler in Nottingham city centre. In the suburbs, bag your free drink at the Test Match in West Bridgford, the Grosvenor in Sherwood and the Nottingham Knight at Ruddington.

Greene King has partnered with footballing legend Jimmy Bullard to support the nation in their quest for footballing glory. He said: “After having a career in football, I’ve seen first-hand the passion this nation has for the sport and as this tournament has proven, nothing is guaranteed in football.

“What can be guaranteed though is a good time at the pub, because no matter the result, win or lose, you’re surrounded by your friends and fellow fans, so you can celebrate or commiserate together."
