Is this the world’s dirtiest female footballer?
ELIZABETH LAMBERT, a female footballer from the University of New Mexico, has been suspended from the team indefinitely after being caught on video committing a series of violent fouls.
The hair-pulling defender has become an internet sensation after being seen hitting, kicking and, in one instance, pulling an opponent down by her hair during a game against Brigham Young University.

When questioned about Lambert’s actions, team coach Kit Vela said: “Her actions clearly crossed the line of fair play and good sportsmanship.”
The college player, who studying occupational therapy, has since apologised for her actions but she could still face further disciplinary action.
She said: “I am deeply and wholeheartedly regretful for my actions.
“My actions were uncalled for. I let my emotions get the best of me in a heated situation. I take full responsibility for my actions and accept any punishment felt necessary.
“This is in no way indicative of my character or the soccer player that I am. I am sorry to my coaches and team-mates for any and all damages I have brought upon them.
“I am especially sorry to BYU and the BYU women’s soccer players that were personally affected by my actions. I have the utmost respect for them.” – The Telegraph
