2018 Semi-finals FIFA World Cup: Croatia vs England: TV channel, live stream, squad news & preview
Watch Croatia and England were unlikely World Cup semi-finalists heading into the competition but will face each other in the last four on Wednesday at Moscow’s Luzhniki Stadium.
Croatia emerged as outside bets to win the competition after placing first in their group ahead of Argentina and edging out the likes of Denmark and Russia in the last 16 and quarter-final respectively. They certainly have the talent to reach the final but the main concern for the side is their stamina and fitness, after being forced into extra-time and penalties in their two previous games.
Date: Wednesday, July 11
Time: 9 p.m. local/7 p.m. BST/2 p.m. ET
TV: ITV (UK), Fox (USA)
The Three Lions have enjoyed their greatest World Cup success in decades after winning in a penalty shootout against Colombia in the last 16 as well as cruising to a 2-0 victory against Sweden in the quarter-final, and football could very well be coming home should they defeat Croatia in the semi-final.

England will contest their first FIFA World Cup semi-final for 28 years on Wednesday when they take on Croatia at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow. The Three Lions last had the chance of reaching a World Cup final in 1990 but lost out on penalties to Germany and had to make do with the third-place play-off.
They beat Sweden 2-0 on Saturday, before Croatia advanced at the expense of hosts Russia on penalties. The Vatreni will be hoping to go further than their side from 1998, who lost to hosts and eventual winners France in the semi-final.
According to Ollie Salt of the Daily Star, Jordan Henderson is a doubt for England, who otherwise have no injury or suspension concerns.
Per the Mirror‘s David McDonnell, Dejan Lovren and Danijel Subasic are doubts for Croatia, but full-back Sime Vrsaljko has been ruled out, according to Robert Cottingham of MailOnline.
