Alan Shearer hopes England's Euro 2012 quarter-final encounter against Italy on Sunday will not be decided by a penalty shoot-out.

Shearer, who scored 30 goals in 63 appearances for England, found the net in all three of his shoot-outs - against Germany and Spain in Euro 96 and Argentina in the World Cup two years later.

The former Newcastle and Blackburn striker, however, believes the experience is a dreadful one. In his column in The Sun, he said: "I would not wish the experience of taking it on my worst enemy."
