On his 32nd birthday, Guillermo Ochoa is the latest football to commit a football shirt number crime.
The traditional 1-11 format that your Sunday League team probably adopts has changed massively over the years as football has changed, but it's gone too far.
Ochoa, Mexico's number one goalkeeper, has moved from Spanish outfit Malaga to Belgian side Standard Liege and in doing so, has taken on the No.8 shirt.
HE'S A GOALKEEPER AND HE'S WEARING NO.8?! Where's the traditionalism? It's wrong on so many levels.
Ochoa's shirt number prompted a whole host of reactions on Twitter:

New level of mockery.

Ochoa joins Sheffield Wednesday reserve goalkeeper Joe Wildsmith in being charged for 'disgusting choice of shirt number' after the 21-year old was handed the No.2 shirt for the 2016/17 campaign.
Why can't some players just opt for a simple number? IT'S RUINING OUR GREAT GAME!
Someone really should start a petition to stop this terrible monstrosity.
What other shocking shirt number choices can you think of?
