We are a little bit closer to finding out if it really is coming home, but in the meantime football fans are definitely going out.

After drinking some pubs dry on Saturday following England's World Cup quarter final win against Sweden, pubs are set to be packed to the rafters again when the Three Lions take on Croatia tomorrow.

The British Beer & Pub Association (BBPA) has estimated that the game, which kicks off at 7pm GMT, will give pubs a massive boost with an extra 10 million pints expected to be bought during the game.

And whether the beers are drunk or thrown around in celebration, the extra number of pints bought during the knockout stage match could provide a boost to the economy of up to £30 million.

BBPA chief executive Brigid Simmonds said: "When it comes to watching the World Cup, only being at the game itself can compare with being in the pub. With the England team doing us proud and reaching their first semi-final in 28 years, fans will continue to pack out their local to cheer on Gareth Southgate and the boys. It's fantastic news for both English football and the Great British pub!"
