“The problems in defense are traditional for national team of England at important tournaments. Let us remember the World Championship when Cahill has lost Balotelli. That is why before Euro-2016 I feel anxious about our defense. We have weak defense center, we have Cahill, Smolling but Stones was playing terrible during the last months.
Successful performance is when you reach the final and win it but we will not be able to do this due to defense. If I was playing now against the defense of the national team of England I would not be frightened”,- Mirror is quoting Shearer.
Shearer was playing for the national team of England since 1992 till 2000, has played 63 matches for the team and is marked by 30 goals.
