Adrian Chiles is joined by Patrick Vieira, Lee Dixon and Fabio Cannavaro as European powerhouses Germany and Portugal get things started in Group G at the Arena Fonte Nova in Salvador.
In what is one of the toughest groups in the tournament, this is one of the pick of the early games. Germany manager Jogi Löw has an impressive array of talent at his disposal, but the national side have not lifted a trophy since Euro '96 and the German public are growing impatient.
The Portuguese are led into battle by superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, but after his exertions for Real Madrid last season, there are doubts and whispers about his match-fitness.
Commentary comes from Clive Tyldesley and Andy Townsend.
