Jules Breach leads the presenting line up, Steve Bower will provide the commentary and Kelly Somers will be reporting from pitch side for both of the opening fixtures.
Channel 4’s Chief Content Officer Ian Katz said:
“This will be England’s first match since the devastating defeat against France and they’ll face an Italy side with a point to prove having missed out on the World Cup.
“It’s a crucial opening match and I’m thrilled viewers will have the insight of Steven Gerrard, Jill Scott and Joe Cole who all know exactly the kind of pressure Harry Kane and the team will be under.”
Last April, Channel 4 confirmed it had secured the rights to live coverage all of England’s UEFA 2024 Euro qualifying matches and two friendlies to be played this year. It also has the rights to four England matches in 2024 (Euro qualifiers or friendless depending qualification).
