The World Cup’s Dirty Dozen: 12 Bad Boys Who May Well See Red In Brazil [INFOGRAPHIC]

With the World Cup now just a few short months away, here at World Soccer Talk we’re desperate to get our hands on any info, stats, and trivia we can to make the weeks pass just that little bit faster.

This week, Betfair published an infographic taking a look at the World Cup Dirty Dozen – 12 players likely to be shown red during the tournament. Some, like Nigel De Jong, don’t exactly come as a shock, but others might just surprise you.

    How in the world is Sergio “red card” Ramos not on this list?

    And i can recall zabaleta being sent off MAYBE 1 time in the past few years at Manchester City (for 2 yellows).

    You have the Argentinian flag for Suarez (my wife noticed).

    Adding this ‘red card waiting to happen’ player:

    Mathieu Debuchy (France)

    To be fair, Suarez’s 2010 sending off vs Ghana was a brilliant, tactical red.

      Like Michael Owen diving to earn a penalty against Argentina was ‘playing smart’.
