#6 Brazil vs Turkey (Player Sent off)

Here we have a football legend showing off his acting skills. Brazil were awarded a corner in a 2002 World Cup match vs. Turkey, when Hakan Unsal gently lofted the ball towards Brazil's Rivaldo.

The ball hit Rivaldo on his legs but he went down clutching his face in dramatic fashion. This display of live drama by the Brazilian ensured that the Turkish left back got sent off.

FIFA later fined Rivaldo ÂŖ5000 for his unsportsmanlike conduct. Brazil eventually met Turkey again in the semi-finals, beating them 1-0.
