His laughter quickly faded as Lineker vowed to apologise

Lineker and Lampard were joined in the studio by Brentford boss Thomas Frank and Alex Scott.

And the banter naturally flowed as the quartet delivered sharp insights into the thrilling Euros group stage fixture.

However, Lineker produced a faux pas at one point as he accidentally insulted Lampard.

The host pointed out there was a fan screen in the background of the BBC’s outdoor studio, which blocked fans from being able to look in.

Lampard joked if the screen was removed, they’d only be able to see the back of his head anyway.

And that’s when Lineker put his foot in it with an untimely joke about balding.

Lineker said: “The Brandenburg Gate there, we should take that screen down and see all the punters.

“But if they took the screen down they wouldn’t be able to watch the game.”

Lampard chimed in: “They’d see my head! They wouldn’t turn up for that!”

Lineker joked: “No you’re right, nobody wants to see the back of your head these days! That’s for sure.”

Lampard appeared to fail to see the funny side as his smile quickly faded.

Fans certainly found it hilarious though, with one saying: “Lampard realising it was a balding joke has sent me.”

Another declared: “This is literally the funniest thing I’ve ever seen, actual tears in my eyes.”

One added: “Gary Lineker has just absolutely bodied Frank Lampard on live TV. Lampard’s face is killing me. The fume.”

Lineker went on to talk about the incident on the latest episode of The Rest Is Football Podcast.

And the host admitted an apology to Lampard was forthcoming.

Lineker said: “Obviously Frank’s slightly thinning, I’m slightly thinning, and I actually meant it about everyone.

“But when it came out, it came out a bit wrong. And you know Frank does that thing where he smiles, and then he suddenly doesn’t smile?

“Frank’s great fun, he won’t mind. I must admit, when I got back to the hotel I saw it on social media and thought, ‘Oh you f*****g idiot.’

“I felt really bad, I’ll have to apologise. I will apologise because it wasn’t deliberate but I get how funny it was. Those things happen on live TV.”

How fans and pundits reacted to Southgate playing Foden on the left wing

GARETH SOUTHGATE has been widely criticised for his use of Phil Foden following the uninspired 1-0 Euro 2024 opener against Serbia.

The Premier League Player of the Year had a sublime season at Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City in yet another title-winning season.

Foden often shone brightest as a No10, but was allowed to roam freely behind Erling Haaland to wreak maximum chaos.

Despite putting in a staggering 13.2km shift in England’s Euro 2024 opener against Serbia, fans and pundits alike were left frustrated by Foden’s isolation on the left-wing.

After the game. ex-England star said: “I don’t think Phil Foden played well, he didn’t get into it.”

Micah Richards added: “It makes me sad when I see a player of this quality in and out of games.”

Cesc Fabregas demanded Foden “be more like Jude Bellingham” and “demand” the ball, while Rio Ferdinand claimed the City ace is “allowing” the Real Madrid star be the “dominant” figure.

Fans, meanwhile, fear Southgate is “turning Foden into Mason Mount” and demand the Three Lions boss find a way to get both him and Bellingham to shine together.

SunSport columnist Jack Wilshere reckons Southgate could play BOTH as No10s, with Declan Rice sitting deep as the No6.

The ex-Arsenal star said: “When Bellingham gets the ball, even if he is only lending it to Foden to get it back, or vice versa, they want to combine and make something happen.

“We have to get them between the lines and receiving on the half turn, playing forward.

“As I said before the tournament, I believe they can play in the same team, as two No 10s, with Declan Rice as the only holding player — especially in the group games.”

England take on Denmark in their second Euro 2024 clash on Tuesday, with kick-off in Frankfurt 5pm.
