Andy Carroll is one of the most easily recognisable players in England for a multitude of reasons.

Despite the fact he is 6'4", one of the best players in the world attacking a header and an absolute menace for defenders, he also has long brown locks for a haircut.

It's been the same ever since he burst on the scene for Newcastle several years ago, and the former England international has always resisted the urge to cut his hair off.

The 28-year-old has frustrated plenty of fans during his up and down career.

Injuries have always appeared to hold him back from realising his true potential - even if that potential was some way short of the £35 million that Liverpool paid for him back in 2011.

The nine-time England international is back playing for West Ham at the moment and in 14 appearances this season and he has managed six goals.

His latest appearance came agaisnt Bournemouth on Saturday as the Hammers fell short to a Josh King hat-trick and lost 3-2.

Although Carroll did not score, he made an impact on the game in another way.

He might not have chopped off his hair, but he has decided to have it braided into a very unique style. Something that some people could pull off, but probably not a well-built Geordie.

As you can imagine, the opinions have flooded in on Twitter and you won't be surprised to learn that nobody has had a kind word to say about his hair.

If Carroll can stay fit for the Irons, there is every reason to believe he can play his way back into the England reckoning under Gareth Southgate.

Although, even he might not call-up Carroll with this hair.
