8 footballers who wore masks on the pitch like Tim Ream
Tim Ream is by no means the first footballer to wear a mask on the pitch.
Mostly for protection but sometimes for image, plenty of footballers have donned a disguise on the pitch down the years.
Youri Djorkaeff: The Wanderers great had to cover up at Old Trafford after breaking his cheekbone playing against Maltese side Birkirkara in a pre-season friendly.
Fernando Torres: The Chelsea striker wore a mask for several weeks after breaking his nose in a Champions League tie against Steau Bucharest.
Jonas Guttierez: The ex-Newcastle, now Norwich star often celebrates goals whilst wearing a Spiderman mask.
John Terry: The Chelsea and England defender wore mask for club and country after breaking his cheekbone against Fulham in 2008.
Trevor Sinclair: The former Manchester City and England midfielder wore a blue mask after breaking his cheek in 2006.
Dean Ashton: The striker, then playing for Norwich, wore a fearsome effort in 2005 that looked like a prop from a horror movie.
Facundo Sava: The Fulham striker always celebrated goals by producing a Zorro-style mask from his sock. Sadly, he didn’t score many.
Paul Gascoigne: Way back in 1993 Gazza set the trend when he turned out in a mask for Lazio and England.
