And her latest gig will see her included in FIFA 22 next season.
Arsenal and England legend Scott replaces Alan McNally as the pitchside reporter in Career Mode.
The 140-cap Lionesses hero has excelled in her media work since hanging up her boots in 2017.
She provides analysis for Sky Sports and BBC Sport – but is also enjoying presenting, too, and will replace Dan Walker as Football Focus host from the new season.
Writing for SunSport regarding her Euro 2020 coverage with the Beeb, Scott said: “I have to pinch myself every time I’m in the studio covering England as a pundit at Euro 2020.
“Before I went on to win over 140 caps for my country, I was always a fan.
“As a kid, I would pull on an England shirt and try to replicate goals from the greats like Gazza, Alan Shearer, and Teddy Sheringham.
“So it gives me goosebumps to now be on screen as part of the BBC’s presenting line-up for the tournament.
“Obviously, we’ve got a job to do when we’re analysing the teams but I can’t stop myself from going mad when England score.”
Popular video game FIFA will also add Stewart Robson as a co-commentator alongside Derek Rae.
Former Arsenal player of the year Robson, 56, made 150 league appearances for the Gunners before joining their in-house TV channel.
