1954 - The Casablanca (Switzerland World Cup)

PROS: Very aerodynamic haircut. Somehow looks cooler the messier it gets.

CONS: The added weight from the gel would reduce speed on the pitch.

UNNECESSARY PUN: "Here's looking at you, kick."

1966 - The Gentleman (England World Cup)

PROS: Lightweight and elegant, this style could stun opponents on the field and seduce ladies off of it.

CONS: Having to carry a comb during the matches was both distracting and dangerous.

UNNECESSARY PUN: "After the game you could comb over for a few drinks."

1982 - The Cop (Spain World Cup)

PROS: Makes you look like a stone-cold badass.

CONS: The inability to get the soup you had for lunch out of your mustache.

UNNECESSARY PUN: "I'm getting too old for this shin."

1998 - The Party Is Out Back (France World Cup)

PROS: Is very technical and clean when in front of defenders.

CONS: Is messy and unorganized from behind them.

UNNECESSARY PUN: "That's a questionable call, ref! Why don't you take a minute to mullet over?"
