BBC confirm star-studded team for Euro 2020 including Arsenal icons Thierry Henry and Cesc Fabregas and Jurgen Klinsmann

THIERRY HENRY, Cesc Fabregas and Jurgen Klinsmann are just three of the football icons who make up the BBC's star-studded pundit team for Euro 2020.

Presenters Gary Lineker and Gabby Logan will also be joined by famed pundits Alex Scott, Micah Richards, Alan Shearer, Rio Ferdinand and Jermaine Jenas for this summer's tournament.

Former Swansea ace Ashley Williams and ex-Manchester United star Mark Hughes will give a Welsh view while James McFadden and Shelley Kerr are on board to represent the Scots.

The Beeb will show the first match of the tournament as Turkey face Italy on June 11.

And they will also play host for England's opener against Croatia on June 13.

However, the Three Lions next two group stage battles against Scotland and the Czech Republic are both on ITV.

Beeb legends Lineker and Logan will front the coverage along with Eilidh Barbour and Mark Chapman.

Fabregas is likely to feature for Spain's opener against Sweden on June 14.

But fellow European big guns France and Germany won't be shown on the BBC until June 23 – the last day of the group stage.

The British broadcast giant will also provide extensive radio coverage of the tournament on 5 Live.
