HAVE YOUR SAY! Who is your favourite football pundit? Let us know in the comments below…

Karen Carney

England legend Karen Carney is up there with the most knowledgable pundits in the game.

The former Chelsea star represented her country on 144 occasions – third on the all-time list – but it's her work as a pundit that fans who her for these days.

A regular on Amazon Prime Video, Sky Sports and BT Sport pundit, Carney had a difficult year in which she was forced to deleted her Twitter account after receiving abuse following comments she made about Leeds which were controversially shared by the club's official account.

But she also made history as part of CBS' first all-female crew for their Champions League coverage in March.

A trailblazer of the women's game as a player, Carney continues to impress as a pundit – will you be voting for her?

Jamie Carragher

One of the most popular pundits around, Jamie Carragher fell at the quarter-final stage in last year's tournament to eventual winner Roy Keane.

The Sky Sports man has become well-known for his insightful analysis, becoming a regular fixture on Monday Night Football alongside Gary Neville.

He became embroiled in some minor controversy this year, though, as he revealed Lionel Messi slid into his DMs to call him a "donkey" after the former Liverpool man suggested he hadn't been "a great signing for PSG".

Carragher also angered former Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after suggesting his Sky Sports colleagues Gary Neville and Roy Keane kept making "excuses" for the Red Devils.

He's certainly a controversial pundit, but Carragher still has plenty of fans and will be hoping for another long run in this year's competition.

Thierry Henry

Thierry Henry was an exquisite player – and he's not half bad as a pundit either.

The Sky Sports and Amazon Prime pundit clearly knows what he's talking about, and definitely adds a bit of Va Va Voom to any game he's working on.

He criticised Paris Saint-Germain for leaving Lionel Messi "isolated" after his summer arrival from Barcelona, perhaps correctly suggesting the French side would struggle to get the Argentinian playing his best football alongside Neymar and Kylian Mbappe last season.

Henry also gave his seal of approval to Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang after he imitated one of his own famous goal celebrations in Arsenal’s 3-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur in September.

Known also for his hilarious reactions while on TV duty, Henry is bound to be a strong contender in this group.

Lucy Ward

BT Sport, BBC, talkSPORT, Channel 4 and Amazon Prime pundit Lucy Ward has become a very fine pundit.

The former Leeds United forward certainly knows her stuff – and speaks a lot of sense whenever commenting about the beautiful game.

She recently revealed her disappointment to see Kalvin Phillips leave her beloved Leeds for Manchester City this summer – although admitted the move is a "natural step up" for the England international.

Ward has shone during coverage of Euro 2022, but can she claim a place in the next round of our World Cup of Pundits?
