Playing for England is the glamorous dream of many children, but it doesn’t always save you from the scary aspects of life.
Gary Lineker has revealed the grotesque behavior Paul Gascoigne used to subject his England team-mates to in a place they would consider a sanctuary of cleanliness – the team’s communal bathtub.
The two stars were among the best of their generations and played together for England and Tottenham.
It also turns out that they had to share a bathroom, and that’s where things went downhill.
Gascoigne used to poop in England’s communal toilets after games, Lineker told Joe Lycett’s Turdcast podcast.

Yes, you read that right. Gascoigne used to defecate while he bathed with some of the best footballers this country has ever seen.
“Gazza used to let one go in the big community bathroom from time to time,” Lineker revealed.
‘It doesn’t exist anymore, but can you believe that’s how it used to be in sport? At the end of the game you would be covered in mud and whatever else, and everyone would jump into a bath together.
‘How big is this bathroom?’ Joe asked.
‘They vary. Normally I would say the community one would be like a big hot tub,” Lineker said.
“There were no bubbles, except when people were farting, obviously.”
“Or when Gazza took a shit,” Lycett joked.
‘Okay, yes. It happened a couple of times, she did it for a laugh. You’ve never seen bathrooms evacuated so quickly,” Gary laughed.
Lineker and Gascoigne played together for England and Tottenham.
Joe then focused on the real shock.
“I’m sorry, but I like pranks as much as anyone, but I’ve never shit in a bathroom with others…” he began.
‘No, well, Gazza always found it difficult to know where the line was. At other times it was actually very funny,’ Gary replied. “He never lacked confidence to make a joke.”
Lineker is no stranger to Bower’s unfortunate moves on international assignments.
The former striker got dirty when he played against Ireland in the 1990 World Cup.
