最烂门将：伊戈尔·卡西利亚斯（Iker Casillas Fernández）
South Africa’s Golden Glove winner had a terrible tournament. In the opening game, Casillas’s errors were costly: his absence for a free-kick led to the Dutch going 3-1 up, while a comical attempt to control the ball in his box allowed Robin van Persie to get his second of the game. In Spain's following must-win game, the Spanish captain inexplicably punched away a free-kick to gift Chile their second goal and send the reigning champions packing.
南非世界杯金手套奖的得主伊戈尔·卡西利亚斯·费尔南德斯（Iker Casillas Fernández）在本届世界杯的表现可谓十分糟糕。在对阵荷兰的首场比赛中卡西利亚斯的失误就让西班牙付出了昂贵代价：他错扑一记任意球让荷兰以3:1领先，而当他试图将球控制在禁区内时，又给了范佩西第二次进球的机会。在西班牙接下来必须取得胜利的对阵智利的比赛中，这位西班牙队长卡西利亚斯一次莫名其妙的出击直接把卫冕冠军带回了家。
The Real Madrid defender came into the World Cup as a Champions League winner, but his tournament will forever be remembered for an idiotic, thuggish headbutt on Germany’s Thomas Muller in the opening game.
后卫：拉莫斯（Sergio Ramos），皮克（Gerard Pique）
Spain’s centre-back pairing looked like they had never met each other let alone played with each other at the World Cup. Comically running into each other, failing to clear long-balls, and allowing the likes of Robin van Persie, Arjen Robben, and Chile’s Alexis Sanchez to run them ragged, the pair conceded seven goals in the first two matches.
西班牙的这两名中后卫在世界杯的表现就仿佛他俩之前从不认识一样，更不用说他们在场上的配合了。搞笑的是，他们在场上各跑各的，长传线路不清晰，结果面对荷兰队的范佩西，罗本以及智利队的阿莱克西斯·桑切斯（Alexis Alejandro Sanchez），二人跑得精疲力尽也没能跟上对手的步伐。这对中后卫组合在前两场比赛中就因防守不当被灌7球。
The Tottenham full-back’s headbutting of his own team-mate capped a dismal and somewhat disgraceful World Cup showing from Cameroon.
中场：威尔逊·帕拉西奥斯（Wilson Roberto Palacios Suazo ）
Stoke City’s Wilson Palacios was one of the few recognisable names, and the star-man in a Honduras team making their only their third appearance at a World Cup finals. But Palacios started the tournament as if he was debuting in its rugby equivalent, and earned a deserved sending off after a second yellow card offence in under 40 minutes against France.
斯托克城的威尔逊·帕拉西奥斯（Wilson Roberto Palacios Suazo ）是洪都拉斯队少有的知名球员之一，但这位明星所在的洪都拉斯队仅在世界杯踢了三场比赛就打包回家。本届世界杯，帕拉西奥斯仿佛是来参加橄榄球赛的，场上犯规不断，在对阵法国的比赛刚进行40分钟时他就因为吃到两张黄牌而被罚下场。
The Manchester United man was completely overshadowed by his namesake Enner Valencia this summer. After being largely invisible in Ecuador's first two group stage games, Valencia topped off a torridtournament by being sent-off in his side's vital group stage match against France.
Few Brazilian players covered themselves in glory during their final game against Germany, but Tottehnham's Paulinho proved to be the pits. Toothless and insipid in the middle of the field, it was, in Jeremy Wilson's words: "One of the worst midfield performances in World Cup history."
The Uruguayan’s career has been on hold since his big money move from Napoli to PSG last summer. Having been forced to play in a wide position rather than his preferred central striking berth, Cavani looked like a man shot of confidence in Brazil, his sole goal coming via a penalty kick against Costa Rica.
La Liga winner and symbol of Atletico Madrid’s greatest domestic triumph, Diego Costa was one of the World Cup’s biggest flops. Having opted to represent Spain over Brazil, Costa looked like a fish out of water in the red shirt of the champions, scoring no goals and heading up a toothless, staid Spanish attacking line.
