Alan Shearer Says World Cup Matches for 3rd, 4th Places Stupid

ST. PETERSBURG, Russia – Ex-England striker Alan Shearer said on Thursday that the World Cup playoff for the third and fourth places was a stupidity after his national team lost its semifinal to Croatia.

England, which crashed out of the tournament on Wednesday evening in a clash against Croatia, will face off against Belgium on Saturday in a game to decide who finishes third and fourth, respectively.

“Third and fourth place play off game is utter stupidity. Last thing any player wants,” tweeted the English soccer legend.

Besides playing for the Three Lions between 1992-2000, Shearer had stints at Southampton, Blackburn Rovers and his home side Newcastle United.

He had some words of encouragement for coach Gareth Southgate’s team following its 2-1 defeat: “Far exceeded expectations. Well done England and well done Gareth Southgate you have been brilliant.”
