Croatia vs Scotland will kick off on Tuesday, June 22. This is the final group match for the two teams with both needing a win in order to have a chance of reaching the knockout stage. If you happen to be traveling abroad (outside the UK) during Euro 2020, you may be worried about missing out on this game. However, a Virtual Private Network (VPN) lets you unblock and watch Croatia vs Scotland live online from anywhere in the world.
Note that we’re only recommending official sources for watching Croatia vs Scotland. The trouble with unauthorized streams is that the low resolution and excessive lag make for a frustrating experience. Some people will miss out on much of the match due to unlicensed streams being taken offline for violating copyright. You can avoid all of the above issues because there are many official sources for streaming Euro 2020, some of which are free.
The vast majority of platforms showing Croatia vs Scotland are region-locked. If you’re traveling abroad and want to watch via your usual streaming service from home, you’re going to need to use a VPN.
How to watch Croatia vs Scotland live online with a VPN
While a VPN encrypts your data and protects your privacy, it can also be used to spoof your location. Connecting to a VPN server and changing your IP address lets you unblock geo-restricted content from abroad (such as Croatia vs Scotland).
Here’s how to live stream Croatia vs Scotland using a VPN:
- First, you’ll need to choose a VPN provider. We recommend NordVPN although you can’t go wrong with the high-quality alternatives of Surfshark and ExpressVPN.
- Next, download and install the appropriate VPN app for your streaming device. All of the VPNs recommended above allow multiple simultaneous connections.
- Log in to the VPN app before connecting to a server in your home country. In doing so, you’ll receive a new IP address and be able to access the region-locked platform.
- Go to the streaming platform in question (ITV Hub, for example). You should now find that you can watch all of its content, be it live or on-demand.
- If it doesn’t work, try clearing your browser’s cache and cookies. Failing this, connecting to another server may do the trick.
Croatia vs Scotland will of course air live. It’s well worth testing your VPN with your chosen streaming platform well before kickoff. That way, your VPN’s customer support should have enough time to troubleshoot any potential issues, ensuring you don’t miss out.

How to watch Croatia vs Scotland (Euro 2020) on UK TV
The Croatia vs Scotland game will be shown on ITV. This means that you can watch it online for free via ITV Hub.

A UK TV license is also required.
If you’re in Scotland, you’ll have to watch via STV Player instead. Again, this requires signing up for an account.

You can use this to test it out for yourself and, if unsatisfied, can request a full refund within the 30-day period to get your money back.
