On the other hand, when he played in a charity game on Sunday, he scored an own goal, gave up a goal while playing keeper and, as you can see above, destroyed the artificial pitch (soccer term) while trying to defend.

So basically, results inconclusive at this point. Nice striker build though. He could be the next Peter Crouch.
