Strength in depth
Hazel Irvine

Roving reporter Irvine is a veteran of major championships, with Italia 90, USA 94, Euro 96 and France 98 among her BBC credits.

Earlier this year, she joined the BBC's network sport team in London, but was already a familiar face thanks to her work on Ski Sunday and Sunday Grandstand.

Born in St Andrews, she began her broadcasting career with STV, and had a stint at ITV before joining BBC Scotland where she had a wide-ranging role as a sports presenter and reporter.

Irvine is pleased that Scotland coach Craig Brown will be with the Radio 5 Live team covering Euro 2000: "It wouldn't be a major football championship if Craig wasn't there!" she says.

Mark Bright

Former striker Mark Bright is one of the BBC TV's team of roving reporters at Euro 2000.

He started as a player at Port Vale in 1981 and joined Leicester City in 1984, but his career really took off when he teamed up with Ian Wright at Crystal Palace.

They formed one of the English top flight's deadliest striking partnerships, with Bright scoring 92 goals in his six seasons at Selhurst Park.

He later played for Sheffield Wednesday, Millwall, the Swiss side Sion and Charlton Athletic.

Bright is now a regular reporter for Football Focus and a match summariser on Radio 5 Live.

Mark Pougatch

Pougatch completes the Match of the Day Live team of roving reporters.

A familiar voice to Radio 5 Live listeners, he joined the BBC at Radio Essex in 1992 and moved to the London-based local radio unit two years later.

Pougatch has presented various sports programme for 5 Live, as well as programmes for the digital channel BBC CHOICE.
