Time is running out for Belgium’s golden generation as they face a must-win Group F clash against Croatia in the World Cup.

Belgium have been among the top-ranked teams in the world over the past five years but Roberto Martinez’s side have been woeful so far In Qatar.

A 2-0 defeat to Morocco has put Belgium on the verge of elimination, while Croatia will be through with a win or draw following their 4-1 thrashing of Canada.

Morocco are playing Canada, who are already out, in the other deciding fixture of Group F and it would take a capitulation for the side to lose and fail to qualify.

Here’s everything you need to know.

When is Croatia vs Belgium?

The match will kick off at 3pm GMT on Thursday 1 December at the Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium in Qatar.

How can I watch it on TV and online?

It will be shown live on BBC One, with coverage beginning at 2:30pm, as well as online on the BBC iPlayer.

What is the team news?

Marko Livaja and Andrej Kramarić both scored against Canada and should keep their places in Croatia’s attack. Zlatko Dalic does not have any injury concerns and could name an unchanged team.
