How to watch Argentina vs Croatia: Stream Messi vs Modric World Cup semi-final on free TV

How to watch Argentina vs Croatia in the World Cup semi-final: Messi’s date with destiny approaches as Argentina takes on Modric and Croatia. Here’s how to watch on free TV.

So, England are out having lost to France in the quarter-finals. Now the biggest question remaining at the World Cup is whether Lionel Messi, at aged 35, can finally lift the trophy for Argentina?

Argentina survived a huge scare against the Netherlands in the quarters in arguably the most enjoyable game of the tournament thus far. Many are starting to think their name is on the trophy (especially the defeated and somewhat bitter Portuguese side).

However, to under estimate Croatia would be a giant mistake. The Croatians are through to their second straight World Cup semi-final, having ousted tournament favourites Brazil on penalties in the last round. Luka Modric and co. looked done and dusted after Neymar’s extra time opener, but found a way back into the game at the death. The penalty shoot out win was emphatic.

A Brazil vs Argentina semi-final would have been a great spectacle for the neutral, but we’re equally excited about this clash. The winner of this game will play the winner of France vs Morocco in the final.

Here’s how to watch Argentina vs Croatia on the best TV, smartphone, or best tablet you have in the house.
