If you're watching the World Cup 2022 game between Senegal and Netherlands and are wondering who the ITV commentators are, we've got you covered.

Jon Champion is the main commentator for the Senegal v Netherlands live stream (opens in new tab) with Ally McCoist joining him on co-commentary. 

Jon Champion has been a commentator on both ITV and BBC for over 20 years. These days, he is most often heard on Amazon Prime covering the Premier League. 

Ally McCoist is a much-loved pundit and commentator who regularly appears on ITV, TalkSport, Amazon Prime and BT Sport. He scored over 350 goals for Rangers and 19 for Scotland – and is well-loved for his sense of humour, bright outlook and historical one-liners during co-comm stints. 

In the studio, Laura Woods is on presenting duties with Ian Wright, Nigel de Jong and Gary Neville providing expert insight. 

Laura Woods is a familiar face to ITV Sport and Sky Sports viewers as well as a presenter on TalkSport. An Arsenal fan, Woods left Sky this year and currently works for DAZN, as part of their coverage of boxing and the Woman's Champions League, among others

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. 

Nigel de Jong has over 80 caps with the Netherlands national team and has had spells at the likes of Manchester City, AC Milan, Hamburg and LA Galaxy. He played in the final of the 2010 World Cup and was on the losing side, as Spain won the trophy.

De Jong has appeared on ITV's international football coverage in the past and has leant his punditry skills to Amazon Prime, too. 

Gary Neville is a former Manchester United captain who won two Champions League trophies and eight Premier League titles in over 600 appearances. A one-club man for his club, he racked up 85 England caps before becoming an assistant coach in the national set-up. He later managed Valencia.

Neville has been one of the leading analysts on Sky Sports since 2011. He first took on punditry on ITV for the 2002 World Cup, in which he was injured, and has appeared at tournaments for the channel since. He is known for his football intelligence and left-wing views, opposing the likes of the Super League and irresponsible ownership in football.  

The broadcasting of the World Cup fixtures are being split between BBC and ITV in the UK, with Alan Shearer, Rio Ferdinand and Vincent Kompany among the BBC pundits (opens in new tab).
