Justin Carr isn’t a football manager or a coach, but his work does go towards helping some of the world’s best footballers feel good when they run on to the pitch.

The 26-year-old is a barber who, through hard work and a few friends in the right places, has been responsible for some of the trims you may well have seen on the biggest stages.

Smith referred Carr to a few more players, and eventually Kyle Naughton referred him to Kyle Walker, one of Gareth Southgate’s most important squad members going into the 2018 World Cup.

“It’s got to be the honour of cutting the England squad,” Carr told the Press Association when asked about his career highlights.

“It’s amazing to say that I’ve done that. To put that on my CV, like a check. It’s like ‘Whoa’.”

Another highlight came courtesy of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Dele Alli, who invited Carr out to Los Angeles to cut their hair and enjoy a holiday at the same time.


But could Carr go one better and cut England players’ hair at the World Cup in Russia?
