England take on Iran at the World Cup in Qatar today as they get their bid to lift the Jules Rimet Trophy for a second time underway.

Every World Cup game from Qatar is being shown live in the UK on either the BBC or ITV, with England’s opener on BBC One and across all the broadcaster’s streaming platforms.

That means the game will be soundtracked by the BBC’s commentary ‘A-team’ of Guy Mowbray and Jermaine Jenas and the people on the microphone always divide opinion.

Analyst Jenas made over 270 Premier League appearances in his career before turning to punditry and presenting as a regular on BT Sport and the BBC. He is a regular pundit on Match of the Day and also began co-presenting The One Show for the BBC in 2020.

Meanwhile, lead commentator Mowbray primarily appears on the BBC and BT Sport. While working for Eurosport at the 1998 World Cup, he became the youngest-ever television commentator on a World Cup final at the age of just 26. Mowbray has been the primary BBC commentator since 2010.
