A SOUTHAMPTON cinema will be showing England's biggest football match in nearly three decades tonight for free.

Harbour Lights, on Maritime Walk, Ocean Village, is welcoming people to watch England's crunch game with Croatia.

It will be the national side's first semi-final match since 1990, when they lost out to West Germany on penalties.

If they win, Harry Kane and co will face France in the final on Sunday, after the French beat Belgium 1-0 last night.

Tickets will be allocated for the cinema on a first come, first served basis.

Tickets can be claimed at the box office of the cinema and are available now.

The premises has a fully licensed bar for people to enjoy the game.

Due to security fears, the event was cancelled.
