Gary Lineker falls into a spot of bother after promising to pin back his ears if Real beat Bayern 1-0

The much beloved Match of the Day host Gary Lineker got into a spot of bother on Twitter on Wednesday night during Real Madrid versus Bayern Munich.

At the halftime interval, when Real were leading 1-0 despite Bayern have the majority of possession, the former Barcelona striker boldly pronounced he’d have his ears pinned back if the scoreline didn’t change.

As we now know Lineker fumbled in his self imposed gamble, and in return the football hero took plenty of abuse.
