Terry explains 'haircut' celebration

England skipper John Terry revealed that his celebration after his winner against Ukraine came after getting a haircut from Wayne Rooney.With players under strict orders not to leave their base, The Grove in Watford, Rooney had to give his captain a trim - and the pair recreated the moment when Terry tapped in from close range at Wembley."In the week I needed a little trim but we weren't allowed to leave the hotel," Terry said. "I asked Wazza and he obliged. He did alright as well. I'm pleased with it and might go back. He was asking for a tenner but I owe it to him."England maintained their 100% record in Group Six despite a late scare from the visitors.Peter Crouch had hooked in the opener but Chelsea flop Andriy Shevchenko levelled 16 minutes before full-time and it looked as though the points were going to be shared until Terry struck.It came four days after Terry had a goal chalked off for offside against Slovakia when he could not resist a touch, even though Crouch's strike was going in."It was good to get on the scoresheet," Terry said. "It was a bit similar to the other day when I was offside, so I was delighted to set up Peter for his goal after sneaking his one in."Terry was pleased with England's reaction, adding: "At 1-0 it was too easy for us. At 1-1 we showed the desire and fight and kicked on. We could have settled for a draw but got a push from the fans and a kick up the backside from ourselves."
