Watch the football:

    For all of you football fans out there, whilst in the World Cup mood don’t forget to go and do a tour of Wembley Stadium… it’s awesome and lasts 90 minutes.

    Fans of the England and Italian national teams are going to love watching the World Cup away from home at Rossopomodoro.

    The authentic Neapolitan pizzeria has created a delicious St George Cross pizza, offering the perfect line-up of Neapolitan culinary flair and iconic English design.

    The Rossopomodoro England pizza is created with fresh Buffalo Mozzarella, San Marzano tomato sauce, topped with fresh cherry tomatoes from Naples and finally dressed with a sprinkle of extra-virgin olive oil from the Amalfi coast.

    Diners can also score a complimentary beer at Rossopomodoro. Every time Italy wins, they will receive a free beer to celebrate.

    Rossopomodoro will be showing all the World Cup’s matches in its three restaurants at Covent Garden, Notting Hill and Fulham throughout the competition, so log on to to see which games are scheduled.

    Get ahead of the game and book your table early to avoid disappointment and become an honorary Azzurri on Italy’s match days. Forza Italia!
