It the first time in 55 years that England has made it to an international final so Sunday evening is going to be tense.

If you don't happen to have a ticket, you can watch the Euro 2020 at home for free or head to a pub and get giddy with the excitement and jangling nerves with others as the team go head to head with Italy.

The Torch on Bridge Street is right near the action, and you can book a seat.

The North London Tavern in Kilburn High Road has a screen as does The Greenman Pub in Wembley or head to Whelans in Oxgate Lane, Cricklewood.

Have a great weekend.
