Argentina vs Croatia Live Stream: Watch the 2018 World Cup online for free
World Cup 2018 is officially a week old, and Argentina are set to take on Croatia at the Nizhny Novgorod Stadium, in what is (on paper at least) one of the standout clashes of the group stages. Our guide reveals everything you need to know to watch the Argentina vs Croatia on TV and online – and best of all, it’s free! Plus, full Argentina vs Croatia TV channel details, the kick-off time and more.
La Albiceleste were extremely disappointing in their opening match against Iceland. Despite having the likes of Sergio Agüero, Angel Di Maria and Gonzalo Higuain in their ranks, they were painfully over-reliant on star man Lionel Messi, despite him being constantly surrounded by a cluster of Iceland defenders. Their backline also needs to tighten up if they’re to stand a chance against a strong-looking Croatia team.
The perennially underrated Vatreni (and best-dressed side in the competition) eased to a 2-0 victory over Nigeria last time out, and they’ll fancy their chances against this Argentina team. The likes of Luka Modric, Mario Mandzukic and Ivan Rakitic may now be on the wrong side of 30, but they have bags of quality and experience at the top level of the game, and know each other inside-out.
Without further ado, here’s how to tune into the game.
