Russia v Croatia Live Stream: Watch the 2018 World Cup online for free

Russia are in action at the Fisht Stadium this afternoon, where they’ll battle Croatia for a place in the Semi Finals of World Cup 2018. Our guide reveals everything you need to know to watch the Russia v Croatia game on TV and online – and best of all, it’s free! Plus, full Russia v Croatia TV channel details, the kick-off time and more.

Well, well, well. Host nations Russia − the lowest-ranked side in the entire competition − are in with a chance of making it to the semis. The Golden Eagles massively overachieved just by qualifying for the Round of 16, and then shocked the world by beating a star-studded Spain team on penalties.

Standing in their way are Croatia, who looked incredibly impressive in the group stages of the competition, before labouring to a penalty shootout win over Denmark in the last round. Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic will need to be at their scheming best today, with Russia likely to play with their backs to the wall, looking to hit Croatia on the counter.

And, of course, there’s the question on everyone’s lips? Will Vladimir Granat complete a pass this time out?

Without further ado, here’s how to tune into the game.
