Speaking after the match, Lineker pointed out that a large TV screen was blocking a fan park from view on the other side of the Brandenburg Gate.

He joked that he wanted to have the screen taken down so that he could see the fan park and catch a glimpse of the German fans celebrating.

"I wish they'd take that screen down, then we'd see all the punters," Lineker started.

"But if they took the screen down, they wouldn't be able to watch the game."

Lampard laughed, before replying: "The back of our heads... who wouldn't turn up for that?"

Lineker then appeared to make a balding joke at Lampard's expense which seemingly even took the Chelsea icon by surprise.

"No one wants to see the back of your head these days, do they Frank?" Lineker remarked. "That's for sure."

Lampard's smile quickly disappeared from his face as Lineker quickly tried to change subject.
