France vs Croatia start time and channels

France vs Croatia is at 2:45 p.m. ET / 11:45 a.m. PT, today (Tuesday, Sep. 8). ESPN Plus covers the match in the U.S., while the UK get it on Sky Sports.

It's time for the France vs Croatia live stream, which brings another pair of big Nations League contenders to the field in this still-young season. The momentum for this fixture is currently swinging in France's direction, after the Croatia team did not fare well against Portugal in a 4-1 loss on Saturday. 

Nations League play (as usual) brings Europe's leading soccer teams to the field to play against one another. It's a way to interject some excitement into international friendlies. France is up 1-0, after defeating Sweden on Saturday, in a 1-0 game.

And that was the French National team not playing up to their standards, giving folks a lot of reason to consider Croatia won't have a chance. If France wins, they've got strong chance of winning this section of play, and brings them with strong momentum for October's fixture against Portugal.
