How to watch a FREE England vs Italy live stream online in the UK

Underlining the fact that its a game of national importance, both major free-to-air broadcasters in the UK will be screening the game simultaneously.

Gary Lineker, Alan Shearer and Jermaine Jenas will be at Wembley on behalf of the BBC.

If you're not in front of your TV (and BBC One), you can also live stream England vs Italy free by firing up BBC iPlayer. It works across a wide range of devices, including phones, tablets, laptops, games consoles and streaming devices and - unlike the ITV option - is available in full UHD.

If you prefer ITV's line up of Roy Keane, Gary Neville and Ian Wright, then you can watch its coverage on ITV1 and the ITV Hub streaming service instead. Be warned though...you won't get that crystal clear 4K picture.

Either way, as national broadcasters, BBC iPlayer and ITV Hub streams don't cost a penny to stream if you're located in the UK.

How to live stream England vs Italy from outside your country

We've detailed how you can watch Euro 2020 from the UK, US, Australia, Canada and New Zealand down below, but bear in mind that if you're abroad at any point during the tournament, you won't be able to live stream the football via your usual domestic broadcaster.

This is because of geo-blocking, which restricts certain services and content to specific parts of the world. However, you can get around geo-blocks by using a VPN, or Virtual Private Network. It's completely legal, very affordable and easy to use - and it also encrypts your browsing, offering protection against cybercriminals and government snooping.
