Everton matchwinner Pienaar explains his South African flag celebration

Everton midfielder Steven Pienaar has explained celebrating his matchwinner against Hull City with the South African flag on Saturday.

Pienaar has watched from the stands in the past few games and noticed a South African flag draped over the advertising hoardings with his nation's emblem upside down.

He said: "I saw it was upside down again. Every time I looked over, it was just annoying me!

"To get a goal, to go over to put it right, was a great thing. I would have picked it up and worn it but I was scared I would get a yellow card so I left it where it was. But at least I've put it right!"
