Brewer AB InBev has increased production at UK breweries in readiness of a victory.

Budweiser is the official beer of the World Cup and promised at the beginning of the tournament a free pint to every England fan in the nation (of legal drinking age, of course) should England take the trophy.

As England prepare to take on Croatia tonight in the semi-finals, Ab InBev's UK president Jason Warner said: "At Budweiser, we're getting ready to honour the people who make football the beautiful game we all know and love – the fans.

"We will celebrate by giving free beer to the nation if England brings the trophy home to reward the fans for their unwavering dedication to their team, and unshakable belief that the trophy will be coming home. So, we're ready, and our breweries are still brewing beer around the clock in preparation.

"Let's end these four weeks of euphoric freedom in the most epic way possible. It's coming home - let's party like it's 1966!"

Drinkers have to register at www.freebudforthenation.co.uk to be the first to know if the offer goes live, and where they can also then claim a voucher for their free beer.

Britons are expected to consume 150 million pints of Budweiser before the final whistle blows on the last game of the tournament.
