Gary Lineker's 'bald' Brazilian joke to Alan Shearer and Ian Wright leaves stunned Match of the Day pundits in stitches
GARY LINEKER left Alan Shearer and Ian Wright in stitches after making a cheeky joke at their expense on Match of the Day last night.
The pundits had just watched Newcastle batter Norwich 3-0, when Lineker decided to have a bit of fun.
The Toon were inspired by Joelinton and Bruno Guimaraes on the day, two stars from Brazil.
And Lineker, 61, couldn't resist making a reference to Brazilians when talking to his two bald sidekicks.
He said: "I know you're going to highlight Joelinton and Bruno Guimaraes, two Brazilians, and then I look up and see your, kind of, heads.
"Or am I being too bold? Not sure but fire away."
