The Monaco midfielder, who previously played for Arsenal, Chelsea and Barcelona, won Euro 2008, the 2010 World Cup and Euro 2012 with Spain.
Also part of the BBC’s punditry team will be former England striker Gary Lineker, Gabby Logan and Alex Scott – the ex-England Women and Arsenal defender who was recently announced as the new host of Football Focus.
Jurgen Klinsmann’s considerable experience in international football will also be called upon. The German played for and coached his country’s national team as well as managing the United States.
At club level, Klinsmann also coached Bayern Munich, whom he represented during his playing career as a striker. The 56-year-old also stepped out for Tottenham, Inter Milan and Monaco, among other teams.
Kerr played for Scotland’s women’s team and coached them from 2017 until last year. She is now the English Football Association’s technical lead for the women’s national teams.
Former Everton and Sunderland forward McFadden, meanwhile, played for Scotland before serving as assistant coach from 2018 to 2019.
Former France international Thierry Henry was also set to be involved but stepped down as it was confirmed he would return to the Belgium coaching team.
Henry served as second assistant to manager Roberto Martinez during Belgium’s run to the semi-finals at the 2018 World Cup.
Henry, Arsenal’s all-time leading scorer, was then promoted to Martinez’s No 2 before he became the manager of Monaco in October of the same year.
