Bald XI of world football 2014
#2 Pablo Armero
Not so famous before the World Cup ‘14, this Colombian defender suddenly found himself in the spotlight when he scored the first goal against Greece in their opening match of the tournament. What made Pablo Estifer Armero famous was not so much his goal but rather the way he celebrated it; he showed the world some slick dance moves, all well coordinated with his teammates.
After playing in the Colombian and Brazilian leagues, Armero made the move to Europe in 2010, when he signed for Serie A side Udinese. In his very first season itself, he made it to the Serie A Team of the Year. He then moved to Napoli, followed by a six-month loan spell at West Ham United, before re-signing for his old team Udinese. Currently, the Bald XI left-back is on loan at AC Milan, where he plays alongside fellow countryman Christian Zapata.
