Every major tournament they come, filmed getting off planes and heading towards hotels with improbable trains of luggage, as the media speculate whether their presence will put off/inspire their husbands to victory on the pitch, and how they will cope with the traditional sex-drought running up to important games.
They are the WAGs, beautiful creatures, often with careers of their own, who are hounded by the press because of who they are married to, or simply dating, thrusting them into the lime-light and usually into a bikini or carefully chosen lingerie for our enjoyment as serious football fans.
The flip-side of all the niceness is that these WAGs have been called a real menace – they are a distraction, unwelcome in England training camps in the past, and blamed more than once for footballers turning down moves to less fashionable areas of the North. But they aren’t all bad by any means, and this article is celebrating the sexiest of this year’s WAGs from around the world.
If you’re not a fan of supremely attractive women in sexy poses, this is probably where you should get off…
30. Claudine Keane
Married to LA Galaxy striker Robbie Keane. First you get to play in one of the biggest leagues in the world, in the shape of the Premier League, then you become one of the most celebrated players in your country’s international history, and then as your career winds down you get the opportunity to relocate to Los Angeles – all the while with someone as stunning as Claudine on your arm… Some people have it too good.
29. Yulia Voronin
She and husband Andriy might be known for their “interesting” fashion sense, but bikini fan Yulia Voronin looks incredible every time she chooses to visit the beach (along with the inevitable flock of paparazzi.)
