The FIFA World Cup is football’s greatest show and one of the most anticipated competitions in the entire world, occurring once every four years. The 2014 World Cup has been all about goals, star players and the fans. But there is something else adding to the heat: the players’ hairstyles. Although all players will look similar in their national team kit, there is one way some of the players stand out as individuals: through some pretty crazy hairstyles. While most of the players have succeeded in presenting a good-looking hairstyle, there are some that have let the side down. Here are some of the worst hairstyles seen at the 2014 World Cup.
The Worst Hairstyles to Be Seen at the 2014 World Cup
Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo
Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the most followed style icons in the world. He is not only important in the field, but the Real Madrid star has been in the limelight off it as well. Although he is a good-looking guy, the zigzag/lightning bolt design on the side of his head has destroyed what could possibly be a stylish haircut. Ronaldo’s bizarre haircut sparked a debate as it appeared to pay tribute to Erik Ortiz Cruz, a young fan who recently had to have a brain surgery that cost £50,000, paid by Ronaldo. However, this rumor has turned out to be just that – a rumor. Cruz’s mother has herself stated in a Facebook post that her son still haven’t had the surgery.

Neymar has become the face of the 2014 Brazil World Cup. After Brazil’s opening game against Croatia, Neymar dyed his hair blond. Those stripy yellow highlights make his hair look dry and are not good for his skin tone. Okay, he is a Brazilian sensation, but this is 2014, not 2004, that he would get away with a platinum blond dye-job.

Ivory Coast’s Serey Die
Serey Die could have looked good with just a mohawk, but he decided to give his mohawk a golden spice and bleached it. His golden ‘caterpillar’ hair can be spotted from the last row of the stands in Brazil. The mohawk also has a slight curve towards the bottom.
Another Portuguese player has made the list, who is giving Ronaldo a stiff competition for the worst haircut. After Portugal’s defeat to Germany in their opening match, Nani thought it was a good time for a haircut and got a star with his squad number shaved into his hair. And he doesn’t have one, but three such stars on his head.
Ghana’s Asamoah Gyan
Asamoah Gyan wears the number 3 jersey for Ghana, but you will never forget that since Gyan keeps reminding you with his haircut. The former Sunderland striker has shaved and dyed the number on the side of his head. He also sports a fluffy mohawk to complete the look.
Portugal’s Raul Meireles
And another Portuguese player joins the list. Raul Meireles can easily go back in time and join an army of Vikings due to his looks. In fact, it is even possible the Norse warriors and seafarers of the 8th to 11th centuries AD sent one of their own, aka Raul Meireles, 1000 years into the future. The Fenerbahce midfielder carries a very bad attempt at a mohawk along with a largely unkempt beard. Hopefully, this ‘playoff beard’ won’t last long after the World Cup.
