The BBC has announced that Cesc Fabregas is to join the punditry line-up for World Cup 2018 in Russia.

He joins World Cup winner Jurgen Klinsmann, twice African player of the year Didier Drogba and 2014 World Cup finalist Pablo Zabaleta in a stellar line-up of international experts.

“We are delighted to welcome Cesc as he joins our star-studded team of experts in Russia,” said Philip Bernie, head of TV Sport.
