World Cup Final
7.00pm BBCl/7.45pm ITV
Finals rarely produce classic games but, after disappointing encounters at the last two World Cups, we are due a decent showdown. Four years ago Brazil beat Italy on penalties after a goal-less 120 minutes and, at Italia 90, West Germany beat Argentina by a single penalty goal in a foul-tempered match.
Again, the likelihood is of a Europe v South America clash. The broadcasters will also be doing battle, with both mainstream channels and Eurosport providing live coverage. John Motson commentates on his fourth final on BBC1,
With Peter Sissons.
