Southampton's journey has been equally as impressive with wins over Arsenal, Wolves and South Coast rivals Bournemouth to reach the last four.

Both teams' preparations coming into this crucial game have been less than ideal, however, with both the Foxes and the Saints enduring damaging defeats in the Premier League last weekend.

Here's how to get a Leicester City vs Southampton live stream and watch this FA Cup semi-final fixture online from anywhere today.

How to watch FA Cup football from outside your country

If you're out of the country, you'll likely find you're unable to access your usual football coverage like you would at home. This isn't necessarily cause for alarm, but rather the result of geo-blocking - best understood as digital borders that restrict certain services and content to certain parts of the world.

Fortunately, there's a convenient way around this in the form of a VPN. This is a nifty bit of software that lets you re-position your device of choice to a location of your choosing, thereby allowing you to globe trot and still access your preferred FA Cup live stream. It's a completely legal workaround, very affordable, and super easy to use - allow us to explain more.
