Snoods seem like the new gloves in football as footballers such as Carlos Tevez, Samir Nasri and Gianluigi Buffon have adopted this style during their matches. However, the International Football Association Board (IFAB) has banned players from wearing snoods in the UK.

Footballers are also normal human beings who adore superheroes as much as us. Jonas Guttierez used to celebrate goals wearing a Spiderman mask while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang always shares his favourite superheroes with us whenever he scores a goal.
