THEN TRY Quiz! Can you name every World Cup mascot ever?

Sometimes the biggest moments at a World Cup happen when the ball isn't touched. Red cards can be defining memories of tournaments.

While you might not have a favourite, you might have one that defined the competition for you growing up. It's too early for this quiz but for kids of a certain age, it'll be David Beckham's tame lash-out on Diego Simeone in 1998.

The sending-off was met with outcry back home, as national newspapers vilified Becks and truly, we've not really forgiven El Cholo, either. 

Some of these reds are more memorable than others – how many can you name?
