Euro 2016 match commentators on ESPN for Group Stage

The Euro 2016 match commentators on ESPN for the Group Stage have been announced. They feature several well-known names, as well as a couple of reunions that many soccer fans will welcome with open arms.

The ever-popular combination of Ian Darke and Steve McManaman returns to American airwaves where they’ll be in the commentary booth together for two Group Stage games featuring England vs. Wales and Slovakia vs. England. Darke will also be teamed up with Taylor Twellman. Those two fan favorites will call the opening game (France vs. Romania) as well as England-Russia, Belgium vs. Italy and other matches.

Plus, there’s a reunion between Derek Rae and Tommy Smyth, who are best known for their work together commentating UEFA Champions League matches on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons on ESPN2 in the early 2000s. The duo will call the Belgium-Ireland game together in addition to commentating other matches separately in the Group Stage.

In addition to the above talent, ESPN will feature a stellar lineup of talent including Jon Champion, Stewart Robson and many more, as well as Kate Markgraf who will be the first female co-commentator in the US to ever call a top-tier global men’s tournament.
