Hayes has earned some well-deserved plaudits for her insightful and well-researched punditry throughout the tournament, including Spain's round of 16 victory against Croatia, and now she has been rewarded.
As a result of her incredible popularity amongst their viewership, ITV have adjusted their plans so Hayes can provide analysis from pitchside at Wembley, according to The Telegraph.
The report also claims that Hayes will also contribute to the commentary on Wednesday night.
She posted a picture of the 44-year-old's detailed notes on social media.
