Shortly after Wayne Rooney crushed Ukraine's Euro 2012 dream with a tap-in header, the returning England striker celebrated by pretending to apply hair spray.

It wasn't a symbolic gesture of his surgically assisted triumph over male pattern baldness, but rather a nod to teammate Andy Carroll, who lent the striker hair product before the match and asked him to score a header.

In April, Martin Kelly revealed that two of big AC's headed goals were scored while sporting Jordan Henderson's gel.
