May 19, 2012 - London

Former England international Gary Lineker has said that English fans are bound to be disappointed once again at the end of the Euros, and doesn't consider Roy Hodgson's men as being among the favourites in Ukraine and Poland.

"It might make a pleasant change that our expectations for the team are rather low this year. But I reckon we'll end up disappointed as usual," The Daily Mirror quoted Lineker, as saying.ineker expects British athletes to impress at the Olympics, though.

"As England invariably let you down it's great to have the Games to look forward to. They're an amazing showpiece for the nation and we're really good at putting on a spectacle," he added.

"Also, the host country tends to up its game, so I think we'll break all our records and win a lot of medals," he said.
