As everyone knows, English players don't dive. 

Just ask John Terry.

In September 2009, Terry stated in an interview that diving was something English players "don't do."

By contrast, "The foreign mentality coming in is that any little clip you can go tumbling over, because of the speed of the game nowadays."
