Clive Tyldesley and Ally McCoist are behind the mic for this last-16 encounter.
Clive Tyldesley is one of the most recognisable voices in football. He commentated for the BBC between 1992 and 1996 before making the move to ITV, where he was the channel’s main commentator for England matches until 2020 and Champions League fixtures while the broadcaster had the rights to the competition.
Ally McCoist is a much-loved pundit and commentator who regularly appears on ITV, TalkSport, Amazon Prime and BT Sport. He scored over 350 goals for Rangers and 19 for Scotland – and is well-loved for his sense of humour, bright outlook and historical one-liners during co-comm stints.
In the studio, Mark Pougatch presents with Gary Neville, Ian Wright and Nigel De Jong on punditry.
Former BBC 5 Live fixture Pougatch moved to ITV in 2015 and will be the lead anchor for his third World Cup when he fronts the channel’s coverage in Qatar. Pougatch has fronted ITV’s coverage of the Six Nations Rugby Championship along with BT’s BT Sport Score show, too.
Gary Neville is a former Manchester United captain who won two Champions League trophies and eight Premier League titles in over 600 appearances. A one-club man for his club, he racked up 85 England caps before becoming an assistant coach in the national set-up. He later managed Valencia.
Neville has been one of the leading analysts on Sky Sports since 2011. He first took on punditry on ITV for the 2002 World Cup, in which he was injured, and has appeared at tournaments for the channel since. He is known for his football intelligence and left-wing views, opposing the likes of the Super League and irresponsible ownership in football
Beloved former striker Ian Wright was Arsenal’s record scorer until his record was surpassed by Thierry Henry in 2005. He also played for the likes of Celtic, West Ham United and Burnley – and famously only turned professional in his early 20s after being a bricklayer prior to getting his chance in football.
Since retiring as a player, Wright has appeared on ITV, BBC, Sky and BT Sport, most recently being a pundit during the Women’s Euro 2022.
Nigel de Jong has over 80 caps with the Netherlands national team and has had spells at the likes of Manchester City, AC Milan, Hamburg and LA Galaxy. He played in the final of the 2010 World Cup and was on the losing side, as Spain won the trophy.
De Jong has appeared on ITV’s international football coverage in the past and has leant his punditry skills to Amazon Prime, too
