Watch the footy over 3G with BBC Sport's new streaming service

Stuck out and about without a Wi-Fi signal? Fear not – you can now catch up on the footy over 3G

The BBC has announced that casual sports fans and footy fanatics alike can now stream BBC Sport coverage and live broadcasts over both 3G and Wi-Fi, via its mobile sport site.

Fans will now be able to live through every tackle, goal and controversial decision live, in real time, as long as they have a Wi-Fi or 3G connection.

The move will certainly be welcomed by die-hard fans who find themselves stranded out in the open, and it shows that the Beeb is seriously warming up for the London 2012 Olympics, in which it will be streaming up to 24 live video feeds simultaneously.

So whether you're rooting for the Three Lions or Zlatan Ibrahimović and co tonight, you won't miss out on the big moments of the game. Well, unless your 3G signal drops out.
