England vs Croatia Live Stream: Watch the 2018 World Cup online for free

Deep breaths. England are in action at the Luzhniki Stadium this evening, where they’ll face off with Croatia for a place in the World Cup final. Our guide reveals everything you need to know to watch the England vs Croatia game on TV and online – and best of all, it’s free! Plus, full England vs Croatia TV channel details, the kick-off time and more.

Who’d have thought it? England have reached their first World Cup semi-final since 1990 and, unsurprisingly, everyone has got so carried away it’s almost pointless trying to fight it. Gareth Southgate, you’ve done a tremendous job.

Blocking the Three Lions’ path to the final is Luka Modric’s Croatia, the other dark horses of the competition. After an extremely strong group stage showing, they’ve played far more cautiously in the knockout rounds, with both Denmark and Russia managing to take them to extra time and penalties. This could be their ageing Golden Generation’s last chance to make their mark, and they’ll be desperate to go all the way.

England and Croatia have massively under-performed in recent tournaments, and it’s scarcely believable that they’ve both managed to make it this far. Unfortunately, one side’s dreams has to be dashed tonight.
