Where to watch England vs Croatia in Toronto and online

England vs. Croatia will determine who faces France in the World Cup Finals this weekend.

While the Three Lions and the Vatreni have played each other quite a few times over the years with a win each in Euro 2004 and later in 2008, there's no doubt that this match could be a close call between a confident Croatian team and England's energetic players. 

The Vatreni team is full of seasoned players from some of the world's best clubs, hence their dramatic (and politically charged) penalty kick win against Russia on Saturday.

They've been owning their adversaries relatively easily thus far; we'll have to see on July 11 at 2 p.m. if England's defence can hold up. 

Here's where you can watch England vs. Croatia in the World Cup. The winner will play France this weekend.
