France vs. Croatia: How to watch the World Cup final on TV and online

Looking to tune in to the final and third-place matches this weekend? Here's how.

Leer en CNET en Español

France and Croatia meet in the FIFA World Cup 2018 final.


This is it. The 2018 FIFA World Cup is down to its last two survivors, France and Croatia. England and Belgium will play in a mildly intriguing third-place playoff on Saturday at 10 a.m. ET (7 a.m. PT, Fox and Telemundo), but the main attraction, the World Cup final, is on Sunday morning here in the US.

With its young stars Antoine Griezmann, Kylian Mbappé, Paul Pogba and N'Golo Kante and an extra day of rest (and no overtime game), France is the clear favorite. But Croatia has shown remarkable grit in getting to the final and features stellar midfielders Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitić -- who apparently had a high fever the night before he played against England in the semifinal and hadn't fully recovered. 

Here's how you can watch the match and more. On US TV it will only be carried on Fox and Telemundo.

Where can I watch the highlights?

Twitter and Snapchat have partnered with Fox Sports to show highlights in the US. You can see every goal scored just moments after it happens on Twitter, in addition to previews, recaps and other live programming from Moscow's Red Square with US soccer greats Landon Donovan and Alexi Lalas. On Snapchat, you can watch videos of behind-the-scenes highlights and reactions from soccer fans across the world.
