Gary Lineker in an Italian Shirt? World Cup soccer creates strange loyalties for us all

By, Kyle Gibson

England legend turned soccer pundit Gary Lineker wasn’t exactly impartial for the BBC ahead of today’s game between Italy and Costa Rica.

The “Match of the Day” host and occasional guest for NBC Sports’ EPL coverage here in the US, sported an Italian shirt live before the match.

The English need Italy to win over Costa Rica to keep their World Cup hopes alive. In its first match, England lost 2-1 to Italy.

It’s a funny touch by Lineker, I just don’t think we’ll ever see Alexi Lalas wearing a Kevin Prince Boateng jersey on air.
