As soccer players compete in the FIFA World Cup eyes are not only on the field, but also on the wives and girlfriends of the players. Wives and girlfriends, also known as WAGS, are popular in all sports. Soccer players tend to attract beautiful and popular women. Consequently, the eyes of the world are currently checking out famous wives and girlfriends – WAGS – of soccer players.
Most famous wife of Soccer’s FIFA World Cup player – Victoria Beckham
Victoria Beckham, wife of David Beckham, is the soccer wife who immediately comes to mind in the US. She is a high profile model and former singer with Spice Girl. Victori Beckham is also proud to be associated and photographed with husband David Beckham.
Beckham was sidelined by an injury in the 2010 World Cup. This would have been his fourth shot at the FIFA World Cup. Beckham would have loved to play for England, and has been photographed in suit and tie sitting with his team.
I haven’t seen photographs of Victoria Beckham from the World Cup 2010, but have heard that in a last minute decision she was spotted boarding a plane to join David on his journey to the FIFA championship.
Girlfriend of Soccer’s FIFA World Cup player – Christine Bleakley
Christine is the girlfriend of English soccer player Frank Lampard.
Christine Bleakly is a celebrity in the UK. Most recently, Christine Bleakley hosted BBC’s The One Show, but lost her contract while vacillating between offers from BBC and ITV. She will continue on the air with The One Show until September, at that time she will begin hosting a program for GMTV, where she looks forward to being reunited with former co-host Adrian Chiles.
WAGS of Soccer’s FIFA World Cup player – Federica Ridolfi
Federica Ridolfi cheers for Italy as the hot and sexy girlfriend of Giuliano Giannichedda.
Federica is a model and dancer. She is also known as a show girl, in every sense of the word. She is a beautiful model who doesn’t mind wearing as little as possible for a photo shoot. That seems to be a thing with Italian soccer WAGS.
Former wife of Soccer’s FIFA World Cup player – Bianca Maria Kajlich
Soccer wife Bianca Kajlich is best known for her television show Rules of Engagement but that’s off the field. She has also appeared in television commercials and models. On the field she was known as Landon Donovan’s wife, until their divorce at the end of last year. It is difficult, however to talk about soccer player wives and girlfriends without recognizing Bianca Kajlich who appeared so well connected with Landon Donovan.
Landon Donovan is a midfielder for the US soccer team at the 2010 FIFA World Cup. Too bad the beautiful couple is not together anymore, but I’m sure with Donovan’s looks, notoriety, and career he probably has another beautiful babe already!
WAGS of Soccer’s FIFA World Cup player- Jamie Lee Darley
As of last report, Victoria Secret model Jamie Lee Darley is the girlfriend of US soccer champion Sacha Klejstan.
Darley was a finalist in the Victoria Secret Model search competition. When she is not spending time with Sacha Klejstan, she is modeling for the Secret or popular men’s magazines.
WAGS of Soccer’s FIFA World Cup – Marta Cecchetto
Marta Cecchetto is a well known model on the international scene and also stars in a few television commercials in Italy.
The hot Italian model is soon to be married to Luca Toni. The two have been together for some time. It’s just a civil matter to tie the knot and make things official between the Italian model and Italian striker.
One wife, one girlfriend of Spanish soccer player – Eva Marie Gonzalez & Sara Carbonero
Eva Marie Gonzalez was the girlfriend of Spanish goalkeeper Iker Casillas.
Casillas is a prominent citizen of Spain in her own right. Eva Maria Gonzalez was Miss Espana 2003. She has since launched a successful modeling career and television host.
Unfortunately, Eva Marie Gonzalez and Iker Casillas are no longer together, a story much of the media was not aware of until Spain’s humiliating loss to Switzerland earlier this week. A few fans outraged by the loss blamed Casillas’ latest girlfriend, newscaster Sara Carbonero, for hanging out around the goal, distracting Casillas during the game, according to a report in the New York Times.
Casillas new girl is a distraction, according to most men, but hardly likely the Spanish team lost.
Tune in to Spain’s games during the World Cup to catch a glimpse of Sara Carbonero, voted the world’s sexiest newscaster by a men’s magazine. I don’t think she is as beautiful as Eva Marie Gonzalez, but the men are enjoying an eyeful of her around the World Cup games.
Girlfriend of Soccer’s FIFA World Cup player – Yesica Touscanini
Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition fashion model Yesica Touscanini is both the girlfriend of a prominent soccer player and a fan of Argentina soccer.
Yesica Touscanini models for Sports Illustrated and shoots equally hot ads for Abercrombie & Fitch. You may have spotted the model in a music video with Enrique Iglesias, but she is the girlfriend of Argentine player Juan Roman Riquelme.
Wife of Soccer’s FIFA World Cup player – Lorena Bernal
One of the WAGS who has actually snagged the “W,” is Lorena Bernal. Bernal is an actress married to Mikel Arteta of Spain.
Lorena Bernal has proven herself a prolific television actress and has recently ventured on to the big screen, while husband Mikel plays the big field.
WAGS of Soccer’s FIFA World Cup player- Ilari Blasi
Ilari Blasi began her public persona and career as a child star in Italy. Blasi has run the gamut in Italy from showgirl, to actress, to well known television personality.
Ilari Blasi is the wife of Italy’s FIFA player Francesco Totti.
Women and Girlfriends at FIFA World Cup
In sports, it seems, there are always beautiful and interesting wives and girlfriends. Maybe that is one of the things that draws men to the sport. One thing is certain, the number of amazing models among the FIFA World Cup players is astounding.
Past and present, soccer players have been able to attract and keep beautiful women by their side, on the sideline, and in front of the cameras. It’s kind of amazing how that works.
Former soccer wives and girlfriends who have been involved in FIFA and often the World Cup include Martini Colombari a model and the wife of former Italian soccer player Alessandro Costacurta; Pamela Diaz, who looks a lot like Angelina Jolie, the girlfriend of Mauel Neira of Chile; German Bastian Schweinsteiger’s Sports Illustrated girlfriend Sarah Brandner; and so many more.
Enjoy FIFA World Cup Soccer and the soccer WAGS who are there to cheer their men and their teams to victory!
