Sam Matterface and Lee Dixon have been given the big role of commentating on Italy vs England in the Euro 2020 final at Wembley on Sunday night, 8pm BST.
Sam Matterface succeeded Clive Tyldesley as the flagship ITV commentator for England games in 2020. He has presented on Sky Sports News, commentates for TalkSport and is the commentator for ITV show Dancing On Ice.
The 43-year old's dulcet tones will be bringing all the action to life for fans watching on TV Sunday evening, and he will be supported by former playing pro Lee Dixon, who will provide his usual expertise as the drama unfolds.
Former Arsenal and England right-back Dixon worked as a regular pundit for the BBC on Match of the Day 2 and Football Focus before making the switch to join ITV Sport in July 2012. He can also be heard as the co-commentator on FIFA 21, alongside Derek Rae.
Dixon made over 600 apperances for the Gunners during a 20-year playing career, and also represented Stoke City, Bury, Chester and Burnley prior to reaching the top-flight. Dixon also won 22 caps for the England men's senior team. Despite playing for nine seasons between 1990 and 1999, he was never selected for a major tournament.
Inside the studio, Mark Pougatch will be joined by pundits Ian Wright, Gary Neville, Roy Keane and Emma Hayes, to dissect the action before and after the game, as well as at half-time.
The game will also be available to watch on the BBC, where Guy Mowbray and Jermaine Jenas will commentate.
