The World Cup is here, and with it comes nearly 3.4 billion pairs of eyes who are forced to watch 32 teams of players who have truly bad haircuts run around on their TV screens. Not trying to be harsh, but it’s true that soccer players are the worst-dressed subgroup of male celebrities on Earth, and have the hairstyles to match their expensively distressed jeans, deep V’s, and overly fitted blazers. For ultra-famous people who have incredible bodies and make more money than basically any other athletes on Earth—Argentina’s Lionel Messi reportedly brings in $667,000 a week—there’s no excuse for this. And with each World Cup, the peacock dial only gets turned up—the more creative your rattail and the louder your dye job, the better you’ll play, apparently. (False.) Here, a history of the truly tragic haircuts that will never be forgotten in World Cup history. Not even David Beckham is immune.
