Croatia vs Scotland Euro 2020 time, date, channel

The Croatia vs Scotland Euro 2020 game starts today (Tuesday, June 22) at 8 p.m. BST / 3 p.m. ET / 12 p.m. PT. In the U.S., it's available on ESPN. In the U.K., you can watch on ITV2 and the ITV Hub. Full channel details below.

The Croatia vs Scotland live stream is on now, and it could be Euro 2020 at its scrappiest yet. It's the final game in Group D for both teams, and both could go through to the knockout stages with a win — but a loss would see them eliminated.

Croatia must overcome not just a hostile Glasgow crowd, but also a generally poor start to the tournament in general. The World Cup 2018 finalists hold only a single point from their previous draw against Czech Republic, though they could still end up 2nd in the group — depending on both this match and the Czech Republic vs England game happening simultaneously.

Scotland remain the only team not to score at Euro 2020, though may feel buoyed by a surprisingly spirited performance against England last week. Even so, they still need a win to progress, and will need to get it without midfielder Billy Gilmour, who returned a positive Covid-19 test on Monday.

Gilmour is replaced by Stuart Armstrong, but that's the only change Scotland make. The Croatians, in contrast, have made four changes, with Juranović, Vlašić, Petković and Brozovic all brought in.

Scotland: Marshall; McTominay, Hanley, Tierney; O’Donnell, Armstrong, McGinn, McGregor, Robertson; Adams, Dykes

Croatia: Livakovic; Juranovic, Lovren, Vida, Gvardiol; Kovacic, Brozovic; Perisic, Modric, Vlasic; Petkovic

We'll find out who survives and who's going home very soon, as the match kicks off today (Tuesday, June 22) at 8 p.m. BST (3 p.m. ET / 12 p.m. PT). The game itself, the pre-game commentary and the post-game analysis are free to watch from anywhere in the world — and we'll show you how in this guide.
