Clean-shaven Stephen Gerrard was taking things a little too seriously just before the 2002 World Cup qualifying match between Albania and England.
Now, we know that in comparison to other outlandish and bizarre haircuts listed here, this one is more on the quiet side. However, we felt it was a must. It’s Albania we’re talking about here. Loosen up, dude.
Why Did the Chicken Cross the Road?
Dear Bastian Schweinsteiger. Didn't you realize that you look like a soccer player with a dead chick on his head? Or, did you feel it complimented the entire 2005 World Cup look?
We are aware of the reputation your nation has, for being strict, serious, and sincere. However, adding the blond Arian touch was taking things a little too far.
Run as Fast as You Can
As far as we are concerned, if something like this happens while shaving one's face, it calls for being put on the bench. At least for one-half of the match.
Karim Benzema's little shaving accident has no excuse whatsoever, and clearly explains the 8-0 France won over Kazakhstan. If you would see something like this coming at you, you would try to run too.
Life Is Easier in a Ponytail
There are a few things we can't handle in this one. Sacha Kljestan, you are an astonishing soccer player but what's with the hair? Where should we start? First, the length. We are a few good years after the wild 1970s.
Then, the extra long improvised sideburns you thought made you look cool but actually made you look... different... for the lack of a better word. If you insist on keeping it long, wouldn't it be easier just to tie your hair up in a ponytail?
A True Heartbreaker
Michael Owen, oh, Michael Owen. We absolutely adore almost everything about you. You are a remarkable soccer player, you are drop-dead gorgeous, however, when it comes to haircuts, you're not quite qualified to make your own decisions.
Is it only us or does the front part look like it was deliberately cut in the shape of a heart? What was Owen trying to say with this hairdo? That he adores us back, or that he doesn't really give a sh#t about what we think?
