The World Cup is officially underway. And you know what that means – a ton of intense footy, wild fandom and of course, the promise of unbelievably hot man candy. So, in honour of the world’s largest tournament, below we’ve listed some of the hottest soccer studs since David Beckham himself (yes, seriously, they give Becks a run for his money in both the looks and skill department- can you imagine?).. Enjoy and thank us later
Left back for the world’s former champs, Shakira’s baby daddy is easily one of the top hotties on our list.
We’re not sure if we’re drooling over this Croat’s deliciously toned legs, his masculine stubble or ‘dem eyes…but God, have mercy.
This tall, dark and handsome American describes himself as a proud Bostonian with discipline and dedication on his Twitter account. He’s also definitely delectable. Yum…
We were going to list veteran Brit players Frank Lampard or Steven Gerrard but the truth is, this key midfielder is much younger and a heck of a lot cuter.
This hunky Napoli winger is #30 for Belgium – but #1 in our hearts. Drool.
Oscar dos Santos Emboada
Chelsea footballer recently signed up to star in Calvin Klein’s latest underwear campaign – and we’re so, SO okay with that.
Good luck to any team trying to stay focused while playing against Alexis and his adorable smile. Yep, we’re officially in love with this 25-year-old
This German babe is playing in his third world cup and still has our eye.
In our opinion, this dreamy defender has taken the reigns for England’s hottest footballer. We’re positive this photo is reason enough why.
CRISTIANO RONALDO. CRISTIANO RONALDO. ‘Nuff said.
Big, beautiful brunette with a badass bod. Oh, and let’s not forget about that adorable Aussie accent. This ‘socceroo’ easily makes our list.
The French already have the most romantic accent in the world…and Olivier? I mean… Voulez-vous coucher avec moi, ce soir?
Team: Ivory Coast
Not only is Toure one of the best midfielders out there, he’s also a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations and campaigns against elephant poaching. Our hero. Swoon
He’s been nicknamed ‘Il Principino’ by Italian fans and we have to admit it; that amazing bod has royalty written all over it.
