Gary Lineker has caused a stir by suggesting journalists are responsible for his criticism of Harry Kane being blown out of proportion during the 2024 Euros.

He also took a swipe at claiming that journalists are “not brave enough to ask their own questions.”

In today’s episode of Euros Daily, Mail Sport pundits responded to Lineker’s comments, slamming him for ‘crossing the line’.

Ian Ladyman and Oliver Holt wonder whether Lineker ever asks tough questions himself (does he suddenly think he’s Jeremy Paxman?) and accuse him of ‘demonizing and humiliating newspaper journalists’.

Elsewhere, the team looks ahead to England’s final group stage match against Slovenia and catches up with fans on the pitch in Germany.

Sami Mokbel also joins the podcast to tell us who Southgate will play tonight. Will it stick or spin?
