Gary Lineker slams idea of England coming second in group to get easier last-16 clash and roars 'stop being cautious'

ENGLAND legend Gary Lineker has urged the Three Lions to win their Euros group and not be 'so bloody cautious'.

Gareth Southgate's side could land a tie against France, Germany or Portugal in the last 16 if they beat Czech Republic and win Group D tonight.

And some have suggested that finishing second would provide an easier path to Euros glory as they'd face Poland, Spain, Sweden or Slovakia.

But BBC pundit Lineker – who scored 48 times for his country – wants England to 'attack' and get back to winning ways after their 0-0 draw with Scotland.

Lineker tweeted: "Lot of rubbish about whether England better off losing for easier last 16 game.

"You play to win every game. Winning gives confidence.

"If you’re scared of playing France/Germany you’ve got no chance of winning the tournament anyway.

"Let’s stop being so bloody cautious. Attack!"

England are in second place in Group D heading into their clash with Czech Republic.

Southgate's side beat Croatia in their opener before being held by Scotland last Friday.

A win tonight would seal top spot and a Wembley second round game next Tuesday.


And their opponents would be the runners-up of Group F – France, Germany, Portugal or Hungary – which is decided tomorrow.

If England finish second in their group then they'll head to Copenhagen on Monday for their second round tie.

There, they would face the runners-up in Group E – Spain, Sweden, Poland or Slovakia – which is also decided tomorrow.
