Croatia v Nigeria – World Cup 2018 – Live TV Coverage on ITV

The final fixture on Day 3 of World Cup 2018 sees Croatia take on Nigeria at the Kaliningrad Stadium in Russia, where the teams play their opening Group D contest.

This will be the fifth World Cup the Croats have participated in, and they will hope to improve on their three most recent tournaments, all of which saw them lose their opening contest, before crashing out at the group stage.

The one time they did win their first fixture was during their debut at France 98, when they registered a 3-1 win over Jamaica and qualified second in their group, and eventually finished third after beating the Netherlands in the third-place play-off.

The Super Eagles have also got off to a slow start at their three most recent World Cup appearances, losing to Argentina in 2002 and 2010, while drawing 0-0 with Iran four years ago in Brazil, and a fast start could be imperative to their prospects of reaching the knockout stage given they will next face an unknown quantity in Iceland, before re-acquainting themselves with old foes Argentina.

ITV’s coverage starts at 7.30pm, where Mark Pougatch is joined in the studio by Roy Keane, Slaven Bilic and Lee Dixon.

Match commentary comes from Jon Champion and Ally McCoist.
