If you're watching the World Cup 2022 game between Tunisia and Australia and are wondering who the BBC commentators are, we've got you covered.

Vicki Sparks and Danny Murphy are on duty for this one. 

Vicki Sparks is a journalist and football commentator for BBC Sport and BT Sport. In 2018, she became the first woman to commentate on a live World Cup match on British television, when she worked on Portugal's 1-0 win over Morocco. 

Danny Murphy is a regular analyst on the BBC programme Match of the Day and occasional guest on TalkSport. During his playing career, he played for Liverpool, Blackburn and Fulham among others, earning nine caps for England. 

In the studio, Mark Chapman is presenting, with Alex Scott, Ian Rush and Mark Schwarzer on punditry duty.

Mark Chapman is the current host of Match of the Day 2 and lead 5 Live sport presenter. He also hosts the BBC’s Rugby League and FA Cup coverage as well as The Athletic's The Athletic Football Podcast. Chappers is a Manchester United fan and is also known as a sports newsreader and co-presenter with Scott Mills on BBC Radio 1 during the noughties.

Alex Scott appeared 140 times for England, represented Great Britain at the 2012 Olympics and won five titles in English football with Arsenal. When she covered the 2018 FIFA World Cup, she became the first female football pundit at a World Cup for the BBC and has since presented Football Focus, coverage of women's football on the BBC and the 2020 Olympic Games alongside Clare Balding.

Ian Rush is Liverpool's all-time leading goalscorer, having scored a total of 346 goals in all competitions and was record goalscorer for Wales until 2018, when Gareth Bale overtook his record of 28 goals. Rush has appeared as a pundit, analyst and reporter for Sky Sports and ESPN since 2005.

With 514 appearances, Mark Schwarzer is the record-holder for overseas players in the Premier League. The Australian is his nation's record appearance holder too, with 109 caps.

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