Familiar faces such as Roy Keane, Lee Dixon and Ian Wright will be joined by Sky Sports analyst Gary Neville, former West Ham boss Slaven Bilic, Ireland manager Martin O'Neill as well as Patrice Evra.

Neville is seen as a massive coup for the broadcaster with the former United full back in demand in the lead up to the tournament, and it will be interesting to see how Neville is utilised in the ITV studio.

Celtic legend Henrik Larsson, Chelsea Ladies striker Eniola Aluko and Wales manager Ryan Giggs make up the rest of the roster, with former Premier League referee Mark Clattenburg to be involved in ITV's set-up as well.

ITV will show 23 matches of the tournament with a further nine knockout games also set to be broadcast live.

Presenter Mark Pougatch will take on presenting duties alongside Jacqui Oatley with commentary from the likes of Clive Tyldesely, Jon Champion and Glenn Hoddle.
