Asamoah Gyan

The Ghana striker, who was perhaps one of the best things that happened to his country, in this World Cup was the guilty party in a heartbreaking quarter-final defeat. A closely fought match, African expectations and the pressure of taking a last minute penalty in extra time, all took toll on him and his last minute penalty miss certainly turned him from a hero to a zero.

Fabio Cannavaro

The Italians are famously known for their excellent defensive record in world competitions but that was not to be the case in the World Cup 2010. The Italians, with Cannavaro at the heart of their defence, conceded goals in every match and thus departed from the World Cup without a single victory.

RI Myong Guk

The Korea DPR goalkeeper was a revelation for the Asian side in the World Cup qualifying. He kept clean sheets in six rounds of matches. Ri was awarded for helping Korea DPR to their second FIFA World Cup when he was named his country's Player of the Year last year. But all that was forgotten when the Portuguese romped Korea DPR 7-0 to knock them out of the group stages. In all, they conceded 12 goals in 3 matches.

John Heitinga

Netherlands came into the World Cup final after winning all their matches in the tournament so far. In the final which reached extra time, the Dutch had shown a stern defence allowing little room for Spanish strikers. But all that was blown apart when John Heitinga received a second booking to be sent off leaving Netherlands with 10 men and no substitutions left which ultimately allowed Spain to unlock the Dutch defence and win the tournament.
