Is this the worst haircut of the World Cup? Ronaldo sports new zig-zag do

Published 22/06/2014 | 20:52

Ronaldo has never been afraid of rocking some perfectly coiffed barnets, but this one looks as if his barber dropped the clippers mid-shave.

Cristiano Ronaldo will step out onto the Manaus pitch against the USA hoping to bounce back from Portugal's thrashing at the hands of Germany.

In preparation for the eyes of the world being trained on the No 7 once more, the world's best player has decided to rock a new haircut.

Néstor Pitana: Argentinian referee Nestor Pitana needs to lose only about four hair-strands before he takes Sir Bobby Charlton's crown as having the best (worst) comb over.

But it's not one of his best.

Ronaldo, always looking as if he's stepped straight from the runway to the football pitch, has inexplicably added a zigzag to his perfect locks.

Raul Meireles: A man who wouldn't look out of place with the hipster crowd, Ronaldo's team-mate Raul Meireles has the best beard of the World Cup. He needs to spend more time on his hair, though.

But fortunately for the Real Madrid man, the dodgy zigzag is not even the worst work a barber has done at this World Cup.

Luka Modric Not a particularly bad cut but the Croatian playmaker looked much better with the flowing blond hair we all knew and loved.
Dani Alves is yet to sign a new deal at Barcelona
Dani Alves: Dani Alves clearly opted for the wrong shade of highlighter. Instead of going for blond it looks as if the Brazil full back has picked up grey.
Neymar Jr: The most famous man in Brazil's hair is all over the place. Up at the front, shaved at the sides, terrible blond highlights... a mess.
David Luiz: The third Brazilian in this list sent this internet into a spin with rumours he had chopped off his famous locks, David Luiz emerged with his curly head of hair in tact. A living, breathing Sideshow Bob.
Asamoah Gyan: It's a rare moment when a striker wears the No 3 shirt, but Asamoah Gyan is so close to the number he decided to get it imprinted with blond highlights in the side of his head. If only Ghana could have found a third against the Germans.
Benoit Assou-Ekotto: We're not sure if the hairband at the front of Benoit Assou-Ekotto's hair is to stop his afro getting in his eyes, or to protect his forehead when he decides to butt his Cameroon team-mates
Paul Pogba: The coveted French midfielder has gone a bit over the top with the highlighter. Not content with adding a bit of colour to his mohican, Pogba has also added blond streaks to the side of his head and shaved various parts.
Kyle Beckerman: USA midfielder Kyle Beckerman might be summoning his inner Bob Marley with these long dreadlocks, but it's not working.
