Euro 2020 pundit and former England footballer Ian Wright, Roy Keane and Patrick Vieira watching France Germany match in Maidstone

Former England and Arsenal legend Ian Wright is taking in one of the most-anticipated Euro 2020 games in Kent.

The Woolwich-born Match of the Day presenter is a pundit on tonight's coverage of France versus Germany.

ITV's coverage of the tournament is being filmed at Maidstone Studios.

Wright, 57, was capped 33 times by England scoring nine goals during a career which also saw him delight Crystal Palace and West Ham fans.

He posted to his Instagram encouraging his 1.1 million fans to tune in to the coverage, with the Group F 'pool of death' clash kicking off at 8pm.

Fans were delighted by his appearance, with Arsenal supporter Andy Rayfield commenting: "Just up the road from us Wrighty. We'll pop down with cobnuts and gypsy tart."

He is joined on the sofa by Manchester United legend Roy Keane and French superstar Patrick Vieira.

They are appearing in front of a London skyline but are in fact a few hundred yards from Grove Green Tesco.

The game is being played in Munich and comes hours after fellow Group F contenders Portugal thrashed Hungary 3-0.

Posts on his social media page suggest Wright has been in the county for a few days, appearing in a sharply-dressed snap two days ago.

Maidstone Studios will also play host to Tour de France coverage from June 26, as it did last year.
