Joe Hart trolled by Hoddle in 'Head and Shoulders' gag

Goalkeeper Joe Hart was 'head and shoulders' above every other England contender for the position at the World Cup, according to former-England manager Glenn Hoddle.

A nice compliment yes, but also a cheeky little gag at Hart's expense? The England keeper famously starred in pre-World Cup adverts for Head and Shoulders, the shampoo company.

Hoddle, working with ITV on their World Cup coverage, delivered the pun following England's 2-1 defeat to Uruguay, which effectively eliminated Roy Hodgson's side from the tournament.

Despite the defeat they held out hope that they could still mathematically qualify - wishful thinking that was swiftly extinguished by Costa Rica and their 1-0 win over Italy yesterday.

Hart was one of the few England players to emerge from the two defeats with any credit - but Hoddle's little gag still won't go down too well I imagine.

When Hoddle said Hart was 'head and shoulders' above the competition, he was referring to the dearth of options available to Hodgson at the goalkeeper position.

Hart was backed up by Ben Foster and Fraser Forster in Brazil, but neither are serious challengers for his number one jersey.
