Belgium, who lost 1-0 to France and England, who went down 2-1 to Croatia in their respective semi-final encounters this week, now have to meet to decided the third best team at the tournament in what many feel is a meaningless fixture.
Shearer took to Twitter to voice his displeasure, calling the match 'utter stupidity'.
Like many others, Shearer believes that the players themselves have little interest in the fixture.
Shearer was capped 63 times for England between 1993 and 2003, scoring 30 goals.
