Tony Cascarino pays tribute to the great Jack Charlton – “He could walk on water in Ireland, and he loved it!

His first and final goals were both close-range finishes, while his second and third were netted his head, and they have done much for West Ham in their bid for Premier League survival.

Antonio’s feat on Saturday was tremendously impressive, although he’s not the first footballer in Premier League history to reach such a number.

In fact, Antonio is actually one of 27 players to score four in a single Premier League game, while only a handful have gone one step further and netted five.
