Best Beards in All of Soccer

Messi Beard

Of course, the king of all beards in soccer / football is Lionel Messi. Has he gotten better with the beard? Has he scored more goals with the beard? The beard has a little bit of red hair in it too. I wonder if Messi is more intimidating with the beard. It even seems like Messi started scoring more goals off free kicks once he started growing out his beard. Is there a connection between Messi’s beard and his new found success from dead balls? Maybe a little. I think a good Halloween costume would be a young soccer player with an orangish red beard on his face…

Here, with his beard, Messi scores his 600th goal from a free kick against Liverpool. I’ve heard if you touch Messi’s beard you will be able to dribble past opponents with ease and score goals in nearly every game you play. If Messi shaves off his beard how much will the hair be worth…

While there’s really no soccer player who can top Messi’s beard – he certainly the bested bearded soccer player. There are a few who do pretty well in their positions while playing the game with a beard. In fact, if they shaved their beards I don’t know if they’d be the same player at all. Those two players are AS Roma captain Daniele De Rossi and United States national team goalkeeper Tim Howard.

Defender Daniele De Rossi has since left Roma after 18 years and now plays for Boca Juniors. De Rossi is surely the best defender in the world with a beard.

Tim Howard has since retired from the game after playing in England for Everton and in the MLS for the Colorado Rapids. No doubt Howard is the best goalkeeper to ever play the game with a beard.

Former Portland Timbers defender Nat Borchers also has quite a beard.

“My wife liked it, first and foremost,” Borchers explained. “Then it started getting a little bit longer, past the shorter, neat look and it kind of grew into something else—where it is now—and I’m not too sure how she feels about it.”
