Diving is a great sport... And some soccer players really should have taken that up rather than playing ‘the beautiful game’. There is no room for it in soccer, but unfortunately it does still happen; some players just can’t stay on their feet! Flailing around, tripping over invisible legs, rolling over nineteen times because somebody stands on their little toe... Let’s be honest, when it comes down to it some players should win an Oscar. But what are the worst soccer dives ever? Here’s my list, let’s see if you agree!
#10: Jens Lehman & Didier Drogba
Chelsea v Arsenal, December 2006
A great double act...
#9: Thierry Henry
Arsenal v Wigan, February 2007
