Live stream Colombia vs England – when and where
This huge World Cup 2018 round of 16 game sees Colombia vs England on July 3 at the Spartak Stadium in Moscow, which holds nearly 45,000 people.
It’s today’s late game at Russia 2018, so 9pm local time. That’s 7pm BST or 1pm if you’re reading this in Colombia. Elsewhere, you’ll need to tune in at 2pm ET, 11am PT or 4am AEST in Australia Wednesday morning.
We’ve been here before. Last time it was Colombia vs England at a World Cup finals twenty years ago, Darren Anderton and, yes, a David Beckham free kick gave England a 2-0 win. But here at Russia 2018, it could easily be a different story – and you can watch a free Colombia vs England live stream from anywhere in the world.
England started the 2018 FIFA World Cup given a very slim chance of getting very far in Russia, but that 6-1 Panama destruction and a Harry Kane hat-trick suddenly made them a very real threat in many peoples’ eyes. And now that they’re on the so-called easier half of the World Cup draw, memories of 1966 are beginning to stir again.
For Colombia, it feels like a lot rests on the late fitness call of their talisman James Rodríguez. He may have yet to show himself as the threat that won him the Golden Boot in Brazil four years ago, but his undoubted quality could be key. Colombia are no one-man team however, with the likes of Juan Cuadrado and Radamel Falcao bringing the star power.
Keep reading to discover how to live stream Colombia vs England – and, indeed, every World Cup 2018 match – no matter where in the world you are. Below we’ll tell you exactly how to watch on your TV, mobile device and it doesn’t have to cost you a thing.
Use a VPN to watch the World Cup 2018 from anywhere for FREE
You don’t have to miss a single minute of World Cup soccer – even if the country where you are isn’t broadcasting certain games. Because every second of action is being shown somewhere (the UK, for example, is televising every game for free – see below), you can simply use a VPN to login to a region that is broadcasting the game. And it’s really easy to do:
1. Download and install a VPN
We’ve tested all of the major VPN services and we rate ExpressVPN as the absolute best. It’s compatible with all of your devices, supports most streaming services and ranks amongst the fastest. You can even install it on devices like an Amazon Fire TV Stick, Apple TV, Xbox and PlayStation. So for a one-stop shop, you can’t go wrong with Express – but there are more fantastic VPN options out there as well:

How to watch Colombia vs England: US live stream
Fox Sport is the official US broadcaster for World Cup soccer in the US and it’s 2pm ET / 11am PT kick-off for Colombia vs England. If you don’t have cable, you could always grab a free trial to another streaming service like Sling and Fubo and watch on there.
