How to look a prat as you score your first Premier League goal

Woah! I thought young Premier League footballers surrounded themselves with agents and club advisers to stop them doing daft things like this. We are not quite sure who talked Newcastle youngster Andy Carroll into doing an Elano, but when he looks back to the DVD of his first Premier League goal in years to come he will be greeted by the sight of a lanky, white 20-year-old targetman with braids.

Of his new hairdo, Carroll said: “I’ve had some stick for it and I probably will get even more now. I had been growing it but decided to go for the change. But after scoring my first goal with the hair like this I will be keeping it.”
