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,” a daily quoted Lineker, as saying.

Lineker 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.
