Newcastle United and Blackburn Rovers legend Alan Shearer has gone viral again online ahead of Euro 2016 in France.

Last summer Shearer, who scored 313 goals in 622 career games for club and country and remains the Premier League's record goalscorer, won the internet when his son Will posted a brilliant video of a trickshot goal he scored playing barefoot on holiday in Portugal, as reported by the likes of the Daily Star.

Now, less than a year later, the former England talisman has been at it again.

With Roy Hodgson's side ready to embark on their Euro 2016 campaign against Russia on Saturday, thoughts are turning to how far the Three Lions can progress.

And there is already talk of who might step up and take penalties as England's tournaments seem to perennially fail when it comes to spot kicks in the knockout stages.

Well Hodgson's stars could do a lot worse than take some inspiration from Shearer after he was filmed lashing home a fantastic penalty in his garden.

'The old man practicing his pens'

The BBC pundit - this time wearing socks - smashed home a spotkick right into the top corner of his full size goal before jetting off to France in his role as a pundit ahead of Friday's opening game between the hosts and Romania.

And his son Will posted the typical Shearer finish on Twitter for all to see with the words: "The old man practicing his pens before he goes of to the Euros #topbins."

The clip also shows the former Magpies man wheel away with his trademark raised hand celebration.

It's just a shame England don't have his services to call on for this summer's tournament.
