Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp will join Jurgen Klinsmann, Clarence Seedorf and David James in the line-up alongside regular pundits [[Alan Hansen]], [[Alan Shearer]] and [[Lee Dixon]].

Redknapp, who re-joins the BBC team following his involvement in the 2010 World Cup, said: “I’m really looking forward to working with the BBC team again on what should be a terrific tournament.”

He’ll join the on-air team broadcasting from the state-of-the-art studio based at BBC Sport’s new home at MediaCityUK in Salford. Using the very latest in augmented-reality virtual graphics, Motion Analysis and VizRT, the team will bring the atmosphere and flavour of every live game to audiences across the country.
