Gary Lineker enjoyed a remarkable career on the field, and he's made a name for himself off of it as well, as one of the preeminent pundits in the UK, and he joins SI's Grant Wahl on the latest Planet Fútbol Podcast.   

 

From winning the Golden Boot at the 1986 World Cup, to being on the wrong end of Diego Maradona's Hand of God goal, to starring for Leicester City, Barcelona and Tottenham, Lineker's playing career is among the best and most prolific for an England international.

The Leicester native also got to witness Leicester City's remarkable run to the Premier League title, while paying the price for a midseason pledge by hosting the popular Match of the Day in his underpants to kick off this season. He talks about it all while also chiming on on Bob Bradley's appointment at Swansea, the England national team's woes and FIFA corruption in the podcast above.
