Euro 2016: England v Russia
England begin their European Championship group B campaign as they take on Russia in Marseille.
After a perfect record in qualifying and some impressive results in recent friendlies England go into the tournament in confident mood but will face a tough test against Leonid Slutsky's Russia.  Roy Hodgson's side has a nice blend of experience in the form of skipper Wayne Rooney, Gary Cahill and Joe Hart, and some exciting young talent with the likes of Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Marcus Rashford, all looking to make an impression.  
Mark Pougatch is joined in the studio by Lee Dixon and Ian Wright for live coverage with pitch side contributions from Peter Crouch and commentary from Clive Tyldesley and former England coach, Glenn Hoddle.
