The act of sportsmanship is one part of football which cannot be overemphasized due to the fact that many players have suffered career-threatening injuries as a result of the aggressive tackles from their opponents.
However, there was one player that embodied the definition of fair play during his playing career, who is none other than former English striker Gary Lineker. Over the course of his club and international career, Gary Lineker was never shown a yellow or a red card, which is a truly mind-blowing record even for a striker.
Gary Lineker played for the likes of Leicester City, Barcelona, and Tottenham Hotspur in his club career, winning several titles along the way. Also, Gary Lineker was a famous player for the England national team, where he is their fourth-all-time goalscorer with 44 goals to his credit.
Moreso, the now-famous pundit, holds the record for the most goals scored by an English player in World Cup history, with nine strikes to his name.
What do you think about this remarkable record held by the former England striker?
