The street has become the focal point for celebrations during England's run to the World Cup semi-finals in Russia - and tonight could see the biggest turn out yet.

The town centre's pubs and and bars have been packed out and jubilant fans have celebrated with smoke bombs and flares and dancing on top of bus shelters after matches.

Tonight's game, which kicks off at 7pm and will be screened live on ITV, is England's first World Cup semi final since defeat to Germany in Italia 1990.

Victory will see Gareth Southgate's side set up a final with France in Moscow on Sunday.

But Doncaster Council has said even if England reach the final, the match will not be shown on a big screen or in a fan zone park over fears of potential disorder.

6,000 fans are expected to pack into Sheffield city centre tonight with the game being shown on a 46m screen in a fan park at Devonshire Green.
