Olivier Giroud clearly didn't fancy his own French national side to win the recent World Cup.
The Chelsea striker promised to shave his head if France won the World Cup. Which of course they did. Maybe he just wanted an excuse to change up his look?
Giroud was one of a number of France players to promise to undertake a number of challenges if they won the trophy, according to The Sun.

Well, there's nothing better than someone making themselves look a bit of a fool in the name of good fun. And, let's face it - a bet's a bet.
So off came the hair.
Fair play to him anyway. But we'd have preferred him to go all the way and reached for the Bic razor instead of that poor attempt at a number one. Beggars can't be choosers, and at least he stuck to his word.
And we bet it took him ages to grow all of that in the first place. He probably used loads of conditioning serums for his luscious locks.
With his new look, he'll save a bloody fortune and just think of the extra time in bed thanks to not having to preen himself. It's a blessing in disguise, Olivier - honest.
Giroud's team mate, Adil Rami, decided he would fight two-time Olympic gold medal winning boxer Teddy Riner - and promptly got his arse handed to him. What did anyone expect?
France lifted the World Cup earlier this month, beating Croatia 4-2 in the final.
The Sun reported that Giroud and Rami are not the only Frenchmen to pledge various forfeits after their triumph in Moscow.
Nabil Fekir also pledged to shave his head, while Blaise Matuidivowed to cycle from Paris to Turin. We're waiting, chaps.
Thomas Lemar said he would dye his hair, while Hugo Lloris has the best one of all - a pub crawl in Nice.
Lloris' challenge is one we'd be well up for because that's right up our rue.
