Why do you never see a player get a card for diving?

You do. It’s kind of rare, but I’ve seen it done quite a bit. In a World Cup match it’d have to be pretty egregious.

It’s starting to happen more often. And, at least in England, they are using video review retroactively. Players can get suspended for it. The only way to get rid of it is to make the risk too high. Right now the reward is high (free kick, penalty, yellow/red card to the opponent, etc.) with very little risk.
