If you're watching the Cameroon vs Brazil World Cup 2022 game and are wondering who the ITV commentators are, we've got you covered.

Sam Matterface and Lee Dixon are in the commentary booth for Cameroon vs Brazil.

Sam Matterface is the lead commentator of ITV and became the main commentator for England games back in 2020. He has previously worked on TalkSport and was a presenter of Sky Sports News for three years. 

Former England international Lee Dixon won four English titles with Arsenal and played 22 times for his country. He has appeared both on ITV and BBC as a commentator and pundit, while most recently appearing on Channel 4's Nations League coverage. 

In the studio, Mark Pougatch presents with Karen Carney, Joe Cole and Ian Wright on punditry. 

Former BBC 5 Live fixture Pougatch moved to ITV in 2015 and will be the lead anchor for his third World Cup when he fronts the channel's coverage in Qatar. Pougatch has fronted ITV's coverage of the Six Nations Rugby Championship along with BT's BT Sport Score show, too.

Karen Carney won twelve trophies in her career and played 144 times for her country. She was inducted into the English Football Hall of Fame in 2021 and was twice FA International Young Player of the Year, in 2005 and 2006.

As a pundit, Carney has worked on BT Sport, Sky Sports, Amazon Prime and the BBC. She is currently most often seen on Sky's coverage of the WSL. 

Beloved former striker Ian Wright was Arsenal's record scorer until his record was surpassed by Thierry Henry in 2005. He also played for the likes of Celtic, West Ham United and Burnley – and famously only turned professional in his early 20s after being a bricklayer prior to getting his chance in football. 

Since retiring as a player, Wright has appeared on ITV, BBC, Sky and BT Sport, most recently being a pundit during the Women's Euro 2022. 

A member of England's Golden Generation, Joe Cole was one of the most talented midfielders that the Three Lions had to offer in the 2000s. He went to three World Cups and played for the likes of West Ham United, Chelsea, Liverpool and Lille in his career. 

Cole is a regular on BT Sport and has his own podcast on BT Sport Pods, The Joe Cole Cast.

The broadcasting of the World Cup fixtures are being split between BBC and ITV in the UK, with Alan Shearer, Micah Richard and Alex Scott among the BBC pundits.
