Croatia vs England UEFA Nations League – where and when
England’s Nations League match in Croatia is being held at the HNK Rijeka Stadium, although it will take place behind closed doors due to a UEFA ban on Croatia for a swatsika being marked on their pitch in 2015. 

Taking place on Friday, October 12, kick-off is at 7.45pm BST, 2.45pm ET, 11.45am PT and 5.45am Saturday AET.

It was only three months ago that England’s dreams were dashed by Croatia in the World Cup semi-finals, but Southgate’s Three Lions can heal some of the hurt on Friday with their Nations League tie in Rijeka. And we’ll make sure you can catch a Croatia vs England live stream from anywhere with the instructions below.

The first round of UEFA Nations League matches was heralded as a success, producing a far more competitive brand of football than the pretty drab international friendlies we’ve been used to over past seasons. England started with a narrow defeat against Spain, but now have a trip to Croatia and the chance to avenge that World Cup semi-final defeat in Russia.

While England lost 2-1 to Spain in their first group encounter, Croatia were dealt a more humiliating 6-0 thrashing by the Spanish, so the hosts have a point to prove in this one. What’s more, the losing side edges toward a ‘relegation’ from their Nations League group, so there’s all to play for. Among the potential debutants for England are youngsters James Maddison, Jadon Sancho and Mason Mount, along with Brighton defender Lewis Dunk. 

Will any of the new boys have an impact and help England record their first ever Nations League points? Find out by following the instructions below and grabbing a live stream of Croatia vs England wherever you are in the world.
