Hottest Players in the World Cup

9 Jun

Soccer is a sport I get into every four years when the World Cup rolls around. I admit, I usually find soccer a little boring, and I maintain that a game that can legitimately end in a tie is no sport at all. But the high level of play, the excitement, the pageantry, overrides the more boring elements of, yes, 90 minutes of playing keep away.

My main reason for liking the World Cup? Forget the soccer, it’s the hot players. So I decided to find the one hottest player on each team and present them here for your viewing pleasure. Some notes from my research: Spain and Italy were the hardest to choose from, too many cute players. Greece was the hardest to choose from because of a dearth of cute players. And goalie is still the hottest position, by far. Enjoy:
