BBC Radio Five Live and its digital sister station Five Live Sports Extra will have live match commentaries and analysis on all the World Cup matches... and much more besides.

There will be commentary on seven matches on Five Live Sports Extra during the World Cup - Five Live will be providing full commentary on all the others.

Programmes across the daily schedule, including Breakfast, Derbyshire, Mayo and Drive, will come from Germany as Five Live goes to the World Cup.

The focus remains the action on the pitch and Mark Pougatch and Mark Saggers will present coverage of all the games with Five Live's award-winning commentators guiding listeners through each match alongside a top team of analysts.

Jonathan Legard, Mike Ingham and Terry Butcher will give you the inside track on anything England related as Five Live is the only radio station based inside England's team hotel in Baden Baden.

Fans can give their opinions on 606, with Alan Green presenting a special show after each England game.

And during the tournament Five Live will operate a number of mobile truck-mounted screens that will travel the length and breadth of the UK to a wide range of locations.

The regular daily schedule will have a distinct World Cup flavour with Nicky Campbell co-presenting Breakfast (0600-0900 BST) every day from Germany with Shelagh Fogarty in the studio in London.

Victoria Derbyshire (0900-1200 BST) will be based in various cities including Frankfurt, Nuremburg and Cologne, where England play their first three matches.
