This summer, the World Cup comes to Brazil, the country that perfected the "Beautiful Game." You know what we say to that? Blah, blah blah, blah blah. A rich tradition of excellence is great and all, but the best way to get into soccer is to take an aggressive dislike to someone on not-your-team. You can have your fancy passing and your gorgeous freekicks; we'd rather spend our time screaming at these 14 divers, cheaters, and all-around dirtbags.
David Accam, Ghana
Accam grew up playing street ball in Accra and, on the strength of his talent, made his way to England for college and built a career for himself in Sweden. By all accounts he is a nice guy who has done well by working hard. He's also a dangerous and dynamic attacker and the guy who is most likely to beat the U.S. team in its first game, effectively eliminating America's chances. Root for him to get hurt – but not badly.
