PREMIER LEAGUE football star Rickie Lambert shocked unwitting New Zealand football fans by deciding to make himself eligible for the All Whites, before it was revealed to be an April Fools’ prank.

The Southampton striker made a video, which was posted on the club’s official website, where he revealed that he was eligible for the side through his grandfather.

He was shown holding an All Whites shirt and posed in front of a Silver Fern flag, before fessing up to the prank.

Lambert, who is actually English, has scored 14 goals this season for the Premier League strugglers.
