Most soccer fans loathe when players dive to the ground to get a card especially when they overreact. It’s even more infuriating when great players do it on a regular basis. I’m looking at you, Arjen Robben and Didier Drogba. Robert Pires was an expert at the diving game.
There usually aren’t any repercussions for divers unless they play in Greece. Check this player’s reaction after being sent off for a tackle.
He figured if he’s going to get a red, it might as well be for something legit. That would do it.
