How to Watch the England vs

"It is not anything horrific, but it bothers me and I hope it will recuperate till the match against England", Vrsaljko said, before adding. Croatia will be 41-year-old Çakır's third match in Russian Federation 2018.

How do you watch England and Croatia play today?

It has been more than 50 years of "hurt" for an England side chasing World Cup glory for the first time since 1966 and now they have never had a better chance to emulate the achievements of Sir Alf Ramsey's all-conquering team. He previously refereed Iran's 1-0 victory over Morocco and Argentina's thrilling 2-1 win over Nigeria. "So we won't win the game just because Croatia had half an hour more football than us three days ago, we've got to win because we play better".

England has not appeared in a World Cup last four since going out to West Germany in a penalty shoot-out at Italia 90, while Croatia have matched the team of 1998, who reached the semifinals on the nation's World Cup debut following independence in 1991.

The fixture will need a calm and experienced referee to overlook the game and keep control of the players, especially if there is similar emotion to what we saw in the final moments of France vs Brazil. And the Three Lions enter Wednesday's semifinal having lost just two of their last 30 competitive matches (W22, D6) since dropping their first two games at the 2014 World Cup.


For those unfamiliar (do we really need to explain this?), this basically means that the victor of a game remains the champion until they are beaten by another challenger, who then automatically inherits their title.

Fox (live in most markets) and Telemundo are both included in the "Fubo Premier" bundle, which has a channel package that is largely tailored towards global soccer fans and also has World Cup live streams available in 4K.

Croatia are wary of the threat posed by England captain Harry Kane, who is the tournament´s leading scorer with six goals so far.

There are a number of key battles that may well decide the game; how John Stones copes with the physicality of Mario Mandzukic will be one, as will how Jordan Henderson can cope playing against Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic. The 2010s are the years of living ironically, however, and a new meme has sprouted out of England's above-average showing at this World Cup. "We'll repeat that this Sunday", said one supporter, Sebastien. Croatia have endured two gruelling 120-minute epics, with nerve-shredding penalty shootout wins in the knockout rounds so far against Denmark and the hosts.

The two teams last played in September 2009, when England defeated Croatia 5-1 in a World Cup qualifier.
