Euro 2012: 20 Best Faces

1 of 21

    A competition as intense as Euro 2012 has produced some of the best faces we've seen.

    What exactly do we mean by the best faces, you ask? Well, we aren't going with the usual criteria of good-looking faces. Anything that's just silly-looking or good material to poke fun at can be found here.

    Whether they are displaying exasperation, despair, joy or just contorting their faces in some weird manner, the players and fans in Ukraine and Poland have given photographers some great pictures.

    Take that picture of Joe Hart above. He looks like he could make his way into an Italian mob film with that face, doesn't he? The apparent finger-waving helps him in that respect, too.

    Here are the 20 best faces of Euro 2012.

Franck Ribery Taking a Nap

2 of 21

    Franck Ribery wants to close his eyes and forget the game against Sweden ever happened.

Ashley Cole's Battle Cry

3 of 21

    It seems like the game against Ukraine got the Chelsea left-back all worked up.

But I Don't Wanna

4 of 21

    Antonio Cassano's not a fan of training, especially with the sun beating down on him like that.

Robbie Keane

5 of 21

    All I could do was laugh when seeing this face from Robbie Keane.

I'm Soo Happy

6 of 21

    Gianluigi Buffon is a happy man when Italy are playing Ireland.

Oooh Yeaah

7 of 21

    Gianluigi Buffon looks a bit manic with his celebration here during Italy's game with Ireland.

This Is so Unfair

8 of 21

    Denmark's Simon Kjaer looks pretty down about something against Germany.

Cristiano Ronaldo's Face When He's Asked Why Helder Postiga Is on the Field

9 of 21

    Actually, this is what he did after scoring one of his two goals against the Netherlands in their group game.

Portuguese Popeye

10 of 21

    Check out the guy on the left. All he needs to do is stick a pipe in his mouth and he'll be a meaner-looking Portuguese version of Popeye.

Annoyed Polish Fan

11 of 21

    A Polish supporter exclaims over what I can only presume is some sort of wrongdoing against or by his team during their last group game against the Czech Republic.

Giorgos Karagounis

12 of 21

    After receiving a yellow card that left him suspended from Greece's quarterfinal game, Greek captain Giorgos Karagounis' reaction started off like this.

    It was basically a Greek version of Paul Gascoigne's similar reaction to a yellow in the 1990 World Cup semifinal. Reaction begins at about the 1:09 mark.

Ukranian Excitement

13 of 21

    A Ukrainian fan gives folks a dentist's view of his mouth before, or maybe during, Ukraine's second group game against France.

I Know! I Can't Believe I Did That, Either!

14 of 21

    Theo Walcott's reaction after his equalizing goal against Sweden.

Italian Fan

15 of 21

    Hopefully, this was the fan's reaction after Italy scored against Croatia.

Angry Arjen Robben

16 of 21

    You could say Arjen Robben looks determined, but he honestly looks extremely angry in this picture captured before Netherlands took on Germany.

Giorgos Karagounis

17 of 21

    There's that man, Giorgos Karagounis, again giving someone else an earful.

James Milner

18 of 21

    James Milner shows his frustration after his miss against France in a Group D game.

Mario Gomez

19 of 21

    Mario Gomez was certainly mad at something when Germany played Portugal in their first game of the tournament.

Daniel Agger

20 of 21

    Daniel Agger's having a go at someone, most likely the referee, during Denmark's win over Netherlands.

Giannis Maniatis

21 of 21

    Giannis Maniatis roars like King Leonidas from 300 during Greece's match with Poland.
