Speaking prior to England’s game against Italy, Channel 4’s Chief Content Officer Ian Katz said: “This will be England’s first match since the devastating defeat against France and they’ll face an Italy side with a point to prove having missed out on the World Cup. It’s a crucial opening match and I’m thrilled viewers will have the insight of Steven Gerrard, Jill Scott and Joe Cole who all know exactly the kind of pressure Harry Kane and the team will be under.”
