TV3 announce their panelists for Euro 2016 and the matches they're showing

One name stands out as a very interesting shout.

In just over two weeks time,  Euro 2016 will kick-off and the tournaments expanded format has meant that for the first time ever, TV3 will be broadcasting the European Championships.

The station has just announced their panelists and there are some very interesting names on the list.

Joey Barton is rarely shy about expressing his opinion and the former Man City, QPR and Marseille midfielder is an extremely interesting addition alongside Keith Andrews and Emma Byrne - the first time a national broadcaster has included a female analyst on its UEFA Euro’s panel.
