The uproar that followed Gary Lineker's substitution in his last match for England, when he failed by only one goal to equal Bobby Charlton's scoring record, highlighted the extraordinary popularity of this player. Journalist Colin Malam looks at the phenomenal career of this sporting legend - England's deadliest striker of the past 20 years and one of the most likeable and respected figures in sport today. Joining his home town club Leicester City as a raw teenager, Lineker spent seven years learning his trade before moving to Everton, Barcelona and Spurs where he has spent the last three seasons. This book assesses Lineker's performance on the world stage and looks at the reasons behind his turning his back on European football.
