Soccer can be a vicious sport. The joy of one team's victory is always balanced by the pain of losing to another, and one team of players is on the field anxious when their opponent is happy. Some losses are more painful than others. Depending on the circumstances of the match or the size of the battle, tear gas can take many forms. In a different order, these are the most painful losses in the history of world football.
8. James Rodriguez.
The World Cup is always an emotional one. The same thing happened to James Rodriguez of Colombia, who lost control of the 2014 World Cup quarter-finals after losing 2-1 to hosts Brazil. Thiago Silva took the lead in the seventh minute when David Lewis doubled the lead in the 69th minute, but James scored with just 10 minutes left. Although Colombia went ahead with such an unbeaten run, they gave everything they could, but La Tricolor could not find it and the hosts' chances were dashed.
7. Loris Carios
Loris Karius' knee-jerk reaction to his side's loss to Real Madrid in the 2018 Champions League final has brought him to his knees. Carius, who was singled out by Liverpool fans for his defeat, cried uncontrollably.
6. Mario Balotelli
Mario Balotelli could not cry after Italy's defeat to Spain. That came after he reached the top of the 2002 European Championships. Despite the opportunity, he realizes how difficult it is to get there. And it's not good for the player to see his hard work being wasted.
5. Chelsea v Barcelona in 2009
One of the most controversial games in the history of the Champions League, Barcelona broke Chelsea's heart in 2009. The game was widely expected by Blues fans, with a stunning display from Norwegian official Tom Henning Ovrebo denying Chelsea two clear penalties. Maybe a little more. Unsatisfied with Ovrebo, the English side took a 1-0 lead in the first half thanks to a thunderstorm from Michael Essen (giving them a 1-0 lead). Andres Iniesta then led Barcelona to the final of the Champions League in the 93rd minute, and Chelsea returned home last year after losing to Manchester United in the final.
4. Cristiano Ronaldo
When Cristiano Ronaldo needs a goal to change the game, everyone is watching. Royals and Cristiano Ronaldo are no different, they have bad days. The Juventus player cried in front of the camera when Portugal lost to Greece in the 2004 European Championships.
3. Iker Casilas.
San Iker was a loyal servant of Real Madrid - the club where he spent 25 years. In May 2015, however, Los Blancos ousted the captain and long-time No. 1 player as Manchester United star David De Gea arrived. A press release announcing Casila's release was readily available. The famous shooter was broken during a farewell party and his parents later accused Real Madrid favorite Florentino Perez of leaving the club. It was ironic that Dehia's transfer to the Santiago Bernabeu failed at the last minute due to paperwork.
2. The semi-finals of the 2006 World Cup ፡ Italy with Germany
Another injury time midfield game. In front of a crowd of 65,000 in Dortmund, European rivals Italy and Germany played an incredible 118 minutes before the German crowd broke down. Left-hander Fabio Grosso has scored one of the most impressive goals in World Cup history. Cameras captured the mood of the stadium, with spectators wearing German flags and tears in their faces. Juventus star Alessandro Delpiro won the final minutes after the final whistle, preventing Germany from taking part in the tournament in Berlin.
1. John Terry.
John Terry knows sadness after losing a crucial game. Terry's free-kick came between them and Chelsea as Chelsea were about to win the Champions League final against Manchester United in 2008. Unfortunately, the Chelsea player missed a crucial penalty and handed the trophy to Manchester United. This time the defender could not cry.
