ITV has confirmed the pundit line-up for its Euros 2021 coverage.
The tournament was supposed to happen last summer but was suspended until June 11.
The final will now take place on July 11, a year after it was initially planned.
In the UK, coverage of the event will be split between BBC and ITV.
Here’s a list of all the famous faces you’ll be seeing on ITV over the next four weeks.
Footy legend Gary Neville is an English football pundit, coach and former player who is a co-owner of team Salford City.
He’s become a big name on TV and earns around 1 million a year with Sky alone to lend his expertise to their commentary.
He retired from the game in 2011.
Retired star Roy is the joint most successful Irish footballer of all time, having won a massive 19 major trophies in his club career.
He’s since gone on to enjoy a career as a pundit, despite initially declaring he would never do it.
In 2008, he said: “I’ve done it once for Sky. Never again. I’d rather go to the dentist. You’re sitting there with people like Richard Keys and they’re trying to sell something that’s not there.
“Any time I watch a game on television I have to turn the commentators off.”
Ian played for England during his time on the pitch, and shortly after his retirement was awarded an MBE.
He’s since gone on to enjoy a prolific media career and even appeared in the ITV series I’m A Celebrity.
Former player Ashley is famous for his antics both on and off the pitch.
A very talented player, Ashley also hit headlines when his high profile relationship with pop star Cheryl Cole ended in 2010.
Emma Hayes is a professional football manager who has enjoyed a successful career both at home and across the pond.
The sports star, 44, currently coaches Chelsea F.C. Women, where she’s been since 2012.
Eni, 34, retired from playing on the pitch last year.
She quit to begin a role as sporting director at Aston Villa Women.
However, in May she quit to start a new position in US Women’s Soccer.
The women’s footy star Nadia was born on January 2, 1988, in Afghanistan.
In 2000, her father was executed by the Taliban.
As a result, her family fled to Denmark where she began playing football where she carved out a successful international career.

Rob, 40, represented Wales 59 times between 2002 and 2012.
He scored 16 times for his country and is the only player ever to score a hattrick in the Premier League.
For me being a striker, I’m excited about goals,” he told ITV.
“I want to see as many goals as possible, I want to see exciting football, and I want to be entertained. I think we could see a real exhibition of football.”
Lee, 57, has appeared as a pundit for the likes of Match of the Day and NBC Sports since hanging up his boots in 2002. The former Arsenal right-back signed up for ITV Sport back in 2012.
Alongside his glittering club career which saw him win four league championships and three FA Cups, Lee also turned out for England 22 times himself.
Mark, 53, is the Chief Sport Presenter for ITV Sport. He took over from Adrian Chiles as the broadcaster’s sports anchor in 2015.
Away from football, he shares three children with wife Lady Victoria Scott, the younger daughter of the 5th Earl of Eldon.
Mark was also part of a winning team of celebs who competed on The Chase… and won £120,000 for charity!
Seema may be most recognisable to sports fans as the host of the BBC’s snooker coverage. But Seema, 36, is also known for hosting motorsport for Channel 4 and CBBC’s Sportsround.
She was also part of ITV’s 2018 World Cup coverage and also spent a couple of years on The Wright Stuff alongside Matthew Wright.
It was announced last July that Sam, 43, would be taking over from Clive Tyldesley as ITV’s lead commentator. Previously, he hit the headlines in 2018 after stepping in as the new voice of Dancing On Ice.
However, DOI was not Sam’s first taste of the limelight. As well as working in radio, Sam also appeared on Deal or No Deal in 2006. Unfortunately, he only won £99 from the Banker in the end.
Andros, 29, moved to Crystal Palace five years ago after high-profile stays at Tottenham and Newcastle.
He has thirteen England caps to his name – and has scored three time for the Three Lions – himself. However, Andros is not part of Gareth Southgate’s squad this summer.
His last appearance in an England shirt came in November 2016 against Spain.
