Alan Shearer Taken Down by Ruud Gullit, Gary Lineker in BBC World Cup Show

Ruud Gullit's appearance in the BBC studio ahead of France vs. Germany created a moment of comedy gold as it paired him with Alan Shearer.

When Gullit was Newcastle manager, he famously dropped Shearer for a crunch game. The Dutchman was on his way out of St James' Park soon afterwards.

Presenter Gary Lineker took full advantage of Germany leaving out the experienced Per Mertesacker to ask Gullit if he'd ever do the same.

Gullit didn't blink.
