Sweden and England are just one match away from a FIFA World Cup last four place, all that stands in front of them is each other in this huge quarter-final at Russia 2018. Sweden vs England wasn’t really in the script at the start of the World Cup, but now it’s here and we’ll tell you how to watch a free live stream from anywhere in the world.
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:
The best 3 VPNs for streaming sports online
1. ExpressVPN: the best all-round VPN for streaming, comes with 30-day money back guarantee and/or 15 months for the price of 12
2. VyprVPN: a 40% discount and blazing speeds make VyprVPN a great choice for 4K – and during the World Cup, it’s giving you the chance to win a PS4 + FIFA 18
3. IPVanish: supports up to 10 devices, so great on the go and has 25% off for the World Cup
2. Connect to the appropriate server location
Simply open the VPN app, hit ‘choose location’ and select the appropriate location – it’s super easy to do. If in any doubt, just head straight to the UK.
3. Go to the broadcaster’s live stream or TVPlayer.com
If you know exactly what station you’re hoping to catch the game on, then you don’t need us any longer – head straight there. If you’re not sure, just stick with TVPlayer.com in the UK. It will be showing all the games for free. You don’t even have to sign up.
Want to record the game and catch it in your spare time. TVPlayer Plus carries a £5.99 monthly fee but let’s you ‘record’ up to 10 hours of TV to watch at your leisure. And you can take advantage of its 14-day free trial, too.
How to stream England vs Sweden live in the UK
We’re guessing you probably know this by now, but kick-off is at 7pm BST on Saturday, July 7 and you can watch via television, online or the ITV Hub app for mobile devices – ITV has the rights to show this one on TV.
If you’re out of the country, on your summer hols perhaps (what were you thinking?) and want to get the UK broadcast, then it’s very easy to download and install a VPN and then head over to TVPlayer.com to watch.

How to live stream Sweden vs England in Canada
In Canada, CTV won the rights to show the FIFA World Cup 2018. That means cable users can watch on TV, online or via the CTV Go app.

How to watch England vs Sweden: live stream in Australia
Great news for Australians, along with Socceroos games, the semi-finals and finals, free-to-air SBS now has the rights to show all of the World Cup 2018 games, too. Not so great news – in the AEST time zone, kick-off is at 4am.
And don’t worry if you’re out of the country and want to catch that SBS (or UK broadcast) as using a VPN will let you watch as if you were back at home.
How to watch England vs Sweden: New Zealand live stream
Unlike in the UK, you have to pay to watch the World Cup in New Zealand. Sky Sports have the rights locally.
If you don’t have Sky and don’t want to subscribe just for the FIFA World Cup, then you could go for a VPN instead and tune into free coverage from another country.
