Of the 900-odd players at the World Cup, I can’t remember one with ginger hair â€“ I mean properly ginger hair, not strawberry blonde like Australia’s Craig Moore.
Where have all the gingers gone? Is there a secret Kick Gingers Out campaign to rid the beautiful game of our red-haired cousins? I miss the days when every First Division team had a ginger player. These days there’s Dave Kitson at Reading (pictured, right), but gingers are a dying breed in the domestic game too. What’s going on?
