    Your Least Favourite World Cup Player

    Pepe and Ramos bound to be popular choices but I have a really strong irrational hatred of Jordan Henderson.

    Pepe has immense comedic value imo. Ramos wins this by a street.

    Although there's something about Thomas Mueller's face that makes me irrationally despise him.

    It's probably down to Henderson's uncanny resemblance to Gary Barlow.

    I dunno; I'm well past hating Suarez nowadays, and the current bunch of Germans seem pretty inoffensive.

    Maybe Neymar.

    Pepe absolutely. Should never have been allowed onto a football field again after this.

    My hate for Pepe is tempered by the fact that he was an incredibly underrated footballer. Already we're hearing commentators say that Ronaldo "single-handedly led" Portugal to Euro 2016, but at the time all the talk was that his 3 goals against Hungary and Wales made for a disappointing tournament. Pepe was far more important.

    Ramos is probably overrated if anything, though the number of important goals he's scored is pretty absurd. Hard to think of a scummier CB pairing.

    Just trying to look beyond the obvious two tbh, and I do think Neymar's significantly over-rated.

    Dunno. Cheating racist scumbag cannibal and all that.

    From a parochial point of view Sterling's running into blind alleys, conceding possession and missing of open goals doesn't endear him to me.

    Neymar's not overrated. He's probably a better player than Ronaldo now. I can see why some people dislike him though.

    I think he's very underrated. He sort of brought that on himself by going to play for PSG, so he can't really complain. But he's still a far better footballer than most people think. And incredible to watch, easily the best dribbler in the world.

    Sterling is easy to root for because racist Sun readers hate him so much.

    Spain actually have a nice spine of dislikeability running through their XI with Ramos, Busquets and Costa.

    Nah Pepe has no comedic value at all imo, just a thug.

    Definitely AWTA re Mueller.

    I also have an irrational dislike for Cavani. The best I can put it down to is commentators talking up how good he is, but I've never seen a game where he's played well (that obviously comes with the rather big caveat that I've only watched him play more than about 5-10 times)
