The ITV commentary team suffered a surprise attack ahead of England's game against Switzerland - by a rogue sprinkler.

Speaking ahead of kick-off at St Jakob-Park, presenter Adrian Chiles and pundits Glenn Hoddle, Ian Wright and Lee Dixon were going through their pre-game routine.

Standing at pitchside, the four were then sprayed covered in water by the sprinkler.

Arsenal striker Wright could see it coming and warned his colleagues bit it was too late, and the four were covered in water.

Plenty of critics have asked why the channel persists with presentations from the touchline - maybe the pundits will now be asking the same thing.


Unlike for their coverage at the World Cup, where ITV pundits were casual in shorts and t-shirts, this time the quartet ruined their Sunday best.
