Howard Webb is used to enforcing the law but even the former referee appeared to be caught out when confronted with the rules on gaining access to a bar without ID in the US.

America has a policy under which even a bald 48-year-old can be denied entry if he can't prove he's over 21.

City say the website's goalkeeper printing section is being updated and that his name will soon be added.
