EURO 2012: The Ugliest Players XI

Some celebrate skill, some technique and some hard-work. Here, we undermine it all with a look at the most "interesting" looking footballers at EURO 2012.

Manager - Roy Hodgson

Ironically enough, if Harry Redknapp had won the opportunity to manage his country, this would have been an easier choice, but the selection committee made sure England won the Ugliest Manager of the Tournament gong by employing half-man, half-barn owl Roy Hodgson instead. Perhaps his features are something to do with all the inexplicable face rubbing he did at Liverpool. To be fair, if he wins the tournament for England - and silences the ridiculously venomous media response to his appointment and preparations for the Euros - I will happily kiss his wrinkly little face until Andy Carroll scores ten goals in the Premier League.

Goalkeeper - Eduardo

Sporting some Mr Potato Head style ears stuck on the side of his head with apparently no eye for aesthetic design. Other than that not a bad look, but it's too difficult to ignore those lugs. Eduardo, who plays his club football Benfica also has that Eastern European henchman look favoured by Luc Besson for disposable goons - perhaps a career change awaits when he hangs up his gloves?
