Worst Football (Soccer) Divers

The Top Ten

1 Cristiano Ronaldo Cristiano Ronaldo Cristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays as a forward for Italian club Juventus and the Portugal national team.

Should act like a the great player he is.
Glorifies himself over the team.
Enough with the ugly celebrations.
Enough with the gorilla face after every goal.

Greatest diver of all time.

Yes any player can dive but CR7 is the worst diver because of his very big rate of diving enen in 1 match and his pathetic way of diving even without any contact or very slight contact

Dive, Cris, Dive!, this guy is so overrated, he thinks he is a mix of Adonis plus the skills of Pelé + Maradona, UEFA and FIFA gave him individual awards because Messi was boring of being alone

2 Sergio Busquets

Diving / Faking challenges... this guy is a disgrace to football... - xyz51007

Remember that Classico when he fell down and covered his face? After a while he checked to serif everyone was looking! Worst diver ever

Ronaldo pissed me off when he was in Manchester, but has stopped his antics. However, Busquets just keeps on diving.

By far the worst diver, makes Ronaldo look like an honest player. Busquets chose to play football, I think he would have done better as an actor or a proffessional diver

Becase he is diver

4 Dani Alves

Keeps diving in matches

Diving 24/7

5 Didier Drogba Didier Drogba Didier Yves Drogba Tébily is an Ivorian professional footballer who plays as a striker for Canadian Major League Soccer club Montreal Impact.

no player should be able to take him down, he's a beast... yet we find the smallest player 'forcing' him to go flying

He wouldn't go down if four of us tried to rob him in an alley

Great player but a diver

Big baby

6 Luis Suarez Luis Suarez Luis Alberto Suárez Díaz is a Uruguayan professional footballer who plays for Spanish club Barcelona and the Uruguay national team as a striker.

He dives at least once every two games

He is a huge fat creep and liverpool are useless for sure

He dives to bite a player.

He is a racist person

Worst in the world... how does he not top this list? He is a truly classless

Neymar dives so much he should be #1 - krpele10

How is Neymar not #1 on this list. He dives at least 3-4 times per game and is simply a disgrace. The fact that Messi is higher than him just shows how stupid most of the people are on this website.

He's a cheating bastard!

Best diver in the world. But this is logical since his half country is underwater.

If it weren't for his diving in the world cup, Mexico still had a chance to win! - phantomtheimmortal

He should be nominated for the best diver ever!

12 Oscar

16 Lionel Messi Lionel Messi Lionel Andrés "Leo" Messi is an Argentine professional footballer who plays as a forward for Spanish club Barcelona. He is also known as one of the greatest football players of all time. He was born in Rosario, Argentina on June 24th, 1987.

I voted for Messi just to say I'm a real madrid fan but I know that Messi never dives

Mess I hardly dives he is a stand up player and will get up after he got hacked but there are plenty of others in the barca squad who do enough diving for the whole LA liga. I recommend red cards for diving and they will stop doing it within 3 month

What's this hype about Messi being a great player? He too, dives like any other player.. and so, he too is just ordinary

17 Micheal Ballack

26 Cuauhtemoc Blanco

Slow, Cry baby who calls himself better player of the world and didnot know who Pele was! A real jerk who barely knows how to read, smokes marijuana, and dives like a sloth would.
