Having scored 5 goals in the tournament so far, with Jude Bellingham having scored two of those, the odds for free pints is looking good for the nation, but as always in sport, nothing is guaranteed.

Greene King has enlisted former professional footballer and avid pub lover, Jimmy Bullard,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.

There is only one place I’ll be heading to watch the semi-final game and that’s my local Greene King pub, because once one of our players hit the ball in the back of the net, I’ll be enjoying a refreshing pint – free of charge! No brainer!”
