We all love the beautiful game, but there’s always that one player who takes the beauty away by going too far. At this summer's World Cup there are bound to be one or two players that make the headlines for the wrong reasons, but will anyone manage the infamy of joining our World Cup Dirty XI?
Goalkeeper – Wojciech Szczęsny – Poland
11 yellow cards and 2 red cards – some outfield players go through their whole careers without picking up as many cards, but Arsenal and Poland's #1 has managed it by the age of 23 whilst playing in goal!
Defender – Sergio Ramos – Spain
The Real Madrid centre-back is rightly regarded as one of the best in the world, but his disciplinary record is far from impressive! Ramos has accumulated 19 red cards for Real Madrid so far, and at only 28 years old there could well be time for a few more!
Defender – Walter Samuel – Argentina
Inter fans call him 'tough-tackling', but 'dirty' is the word that springs to mind for most opposition fans! Zlatan Ibrahimović says he’s one of the hardest players he's ever played with, and who are we to argue with Ibra!
Defender – Pepe – Portugal
Sergio Ramos' partner in the Real Madrid defence is no pussycat either, with a reputation for being a tough tackler.
