Former England striker Gary Lineker is baffled by the delay in naming the man to lead England at the European Championship this summer.

Stuart Pearce has been in interim charge of the team following Fabio Capello's resignation in February and while Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp is widely considered to be the favourite for the role, so far no official announcement has been made, with the tournament kicking off in less than two months' time.

Lineker, speaking on the Richard Bacon programme on BBC Radio Five Live, said: "What is going on with the FA? When are they going to decide or even approach some form of England manager or let Stuart Pearce know he's got (the job) for the Euros? Somebody has to prepare."
