Martin Keown is a regular co-commentator and pundit on both the BBC and BT Sport. He won three titles with Arsenal as a player before retiring in 2004. 

In the studio, Gabby Logan is on presenting duties with Rio Ferdinand, Pablo Zabaleta and Micah Ricards providing expert insight. 

Gabby Logan is a former gymnast turned TV presenter and the daughter of former Welsh international footballer and manager Terry Yorath. Logan has been presenting on Sky Sports in 1996, moving to ITV in 1998 and later the BBC in 2007. Logan has presented various sports shows on the Beeb and was the lead anchor for Women's Euro 2022. 

Widely regarded as one of the greatest English defenders of all time, Rio Ferdinand played 81 times for England and was a member of three FIFA World Cup squads. He also won six Premier League titles with Manchester United and captained the Red Devils to the 2008 Champions League. He is most commonly seen on BT Sport as a pundit these days but appears on the BBC during international tournaments. 

Micah Richards played for Manchester City for 10 years between 2005 and 2015, going on loan for the last of those seasons to Fiorentina in Serie A, before moving to Aston Villa. The former defender won two titles, was capped 15 times for England and played for Great Britain at the 2012 Olympic Games. Richards is a pundit across Sky Sports, BBC Sport and US network CBS Sports, appearing across radio and television including Match of the Day.

Former Manchester City full-back Pablo Zabaleta represented Argentina at the 2011 and 2015 Copa America, and was part of the team which finished second at the 2014 World Cup. He made 58 appearances for his country before retiring in 2020 and now appears on the BBC during World Cup tournaments.

The broadcasting of the World Cup fixtures are being split between BBC and ITV in the UK, with Ian Wright, Roy Keane, Gary Neville and Graeme Souness among the ITV pundits.
