Spain take on France in the first Euro 2024 semi-final this evening, and you can watch it all unfold for FREE.

La Roja and Les Bleus are two of the biggest footballing nations in the world and are previous winners of this competition, but for one side, that journey ends here.

Spain beat Germany 2-1 in the quarter-finals and are probably slight favourites here

Spain are into the last four after a 2-1 win over Germany, and Mikel Merino was the hero.

The former Newcastle midfielder came off the bench to power home a Dani Olmo cross in the last seconds of extra time to win the game.

Meanwhile, France were held by Portugal, but beat Cristiano Ronaldo‘s side 5-3 on penalties.

In truth, Didier Deschamps‘ side weren’t great, but they found a way, which they always seem to do and set us up for this enormous encounter.

Merino’s goal was one of the moments of the tournament

Spain vs France: What has been said?

There has been a lot of criticism for Kylian Mbappe this tournament.

The French captain broke his nose during the opening game against Austria and has been forced to wear a mask since.

It’s not ideal, while there were also claims from France that Mbappe was worried about the election.

But Deschamps has staunchly defended his player.

He said: “Don’t you think he has already made enough history with what he has done so far?

“He wants to make even more history.

“We did everything we could with him, with the medical staff, to get him to be here. 

“During the preparation, he had a little back problem, too, but Kylian is here.”
