List of international goals scored by Gary Lineker

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki


Gary Lineker

Gary Lineker is an English former professional footballer who represented the England national football team as a striker from 1984 to 1992. He is England's third highest goalscorer with 48 goals, and was capped 80 times, making him the 16th most-capped player in England's history.

He represented England at two FIFA World Cups (1986, 1990) and two UEFA European Championships (1988, 1992). Most notably, at the 1986 World Cup, he earned the Golden Boot after scoring six goals, including one in England's quarter-final defeat to Argentina.[1] He also scored five hat-tricks for England, three of which came in international tournaments or qualifiers.

He earned his first cap for England in 1984 against Scotland during the 1983–84 British Home Championship.[2] He played his last game for England in a 2–1 loss against Sweden in a Euro 1992 group stage match.[3] He almost equalled the England goalscoring record, held at the time by Bobby Charlton, in a pre-tournament friendly against Brazil, but he missed a penalty kick, leaving him one goal short of Charlton's total, which was overtaken by Wayne Rooney in 2015.[4]
