Dirtiest moment

Goalkeepers aren't known for mean streaks or vengeful play. They're not outfield players, so unlike a midfielder or a defender who'll have a dozen opportunities a match to pull some wicked shit on a poor dribbler, keepers live a relatively tame existence. Volkan Demirel, however, goes hard. He's charged up, and for every minute that passes where he's stuck in the penalty area watching his teammates get all the action, he's scheming some shit.

Case in point: the time he kicked Galatasaray midfielder Cassio Lincoln in the nuts at the end of a Turkish Cup match. Demirel had probably been plotting on that all half.
