    Ahn will appear on MBC, Lee on KBS and Park on SBS.

    Park will make his debut as a commentator during the event.

    At the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, Lee helped KBS win the highest viewer ratings among the three terrestrial broadcasters.

    The three football legends said they are excited about doing commentary rather than feeling pressured about ratings. They also said they will just cheer for the national team.
