Lineker is also the BBC's lead presenter for live football matches, including coverage of international tournaments such as the FIFA World Cup. He has also worked for Al Jazeera Sports, Eredivisie Live, NBC Sports Network, and BT Sport's coverage of the UEFA Champions League. Lineker began his football career at Leicester City FC in 1978, and finished as the First Division's joint top goalscorer in 1984–85.
