BBC, ITV and RTE punditry panels for the World Cup final

RTE, BBC and ITV will all be broadcasting Sunday's World Cup final between Croatia and France.

The French will look to win their first World Cup since 1998 after advancing past Argentina, Uruguay and Belgium in the knockout stages to book a spot in the final in Moscow while Croatia progressed to their first ever World Cup final after an extra-time win over England in the semi-final.


The final at the Luzhniki Stadium will be the final match of 64 games at this summer's tournament and here's how the punditry lineups compare for the three stations.
