Justin Timberlake to broadcast England World Cup match before his show in London tonight

ABC/Eddy ChenJustin Timberlake just made English soccer fans very happy.

He announced on Instagram that he’ll be broadcasting the England vs. Croatia World Cup match on the big screens of London’s O2 Arena before his concert there tonight. This way, fans won’t have to choose between the two.

“Hey, London, I’ve been doing some thinking,” Justin says in the Instagram video. “We had a crazy show on Monday. Got another one coming up on Wednesday. But there’s also another very important thing happening on Wednesday.”

He continues, “So here’s what we’re gonna do. I spoke to the O2 and for the first time ever, doors will open at 6:30 and we’re gonna play this England/Croatia match up on my big screens. So come here, and we’ll watch it together.”

England is one game away from the finals. The country has only won the World Cup once – back in 1966.
