Top 10: Worst dives

2) Kyle Lafferty, Northern Ireland vs Azerbaijan (2012)

It took an injury-time winner from David Healy to cancel out Rauf Aliyev’s 30-yard wonder strike in an eventful 1-1 draw, but Lafferty stole the show by becoming only the second Northern Ireland star to enter the referee’s book for simulation. Realising he isn't going to connect with Chris Baird's back-post cross, Lafferty decides to play for penalty instead. Someone should have probably reminded him the opposition player has to be near him first, though. The result? A yellow card, and immortalised embarrassment on YouTube.
