It was one set of presenters for the worldwide broadcast: https://www.fifa.com/tournaments/mens/worldcup/qatar2022/media-releases/two-former-winners-among-illustrious-assistants-for-qatar-2022-final-draw

Great draw for us.
Batch, JJ was literally talking to the people drawing the balls; so he must have been the main man. Thought he did really well!
The only thing that puzzles me (as a data nerd) is how they avoided an impossible situation, especially in Pot 4. There were so many combos that couldn't happen; how did they know that, say, half way through Pot 4;  the first 4 were all valid but the 4 left wouldn't fit? I probably need to get a life.

I think the European rule only counted towards the first four groups, so if they couldn't avoid it then the second four groups would be lumbered with too many European countries.

Did well, apart from his inability to pronounce the eighth letter of the alphabet properly.

Must admit, wasn't a fan of Jenas in his initial co-commentary efforts.
Started off in the thrusting I've got an opinion & I'm going to use it school of punditry, a la the likes of Chris Sutton.

To be fair he has toned it down more recently, maybe the influence of appearing on the Beeb a bit more. Don't know.

Ultimately would much prefer the ditching of all of the cunts in the studio & the endless over analysis in favour of a return to the clipped Queens English approach of a Cholmondley Warner in a Pathe News type delivery.

I was surprised to see Jenas but he was pretty good, professional and seemed to understand how things were supposed to go and in what order etc. I thought the draw was going to last for hours so pleasantly surprised at how smooth it went.

As for England, couldn't have picked a more favourable group in my opinion. Caveat that I don't know how good USA or Iran are but you've got to be happy.

Itís definitely a good group but if results go as expected (and I know they donít always) weíll have France and Argentina on our side of the knockouts and would have play one of them on quarters.

Obviously again if results go as expected youíll get tough teams on both sides but Iíd fancy our chances more against Spain, Germany, Belgium and Portugal than I do France, Argentina and Brazil

Jenas as a pundit - meh; but I thought as the main presenter he did a brilliant job; just as good as a professional TV presenter. Which is a lot harder than the real pros make it look.
Pundits; most English ex Players seem to be pretty shit tbh. Shearer is the epitome of this; cant remember him ever saying anything that I couldnt have worked out for myself. Good pundits do exist, when you see one you realise just how pointless most of them are. Cases in point: Thierry Henry, Emma Hayes.
