Footballing hunks across the globe are getting ready to put on the show of their lives – for us ladies at home. So, when it comes to scoring off the pitch, here is our squad of the sexiest World Cup players.
England's Frank Lampard, 31
Plays for: Chelsea.
Best bits: Frank has chiselled good looks and nice legs, but he's also a big softie. His goal celebration consists of pointing to the sky, a tribute to his mum Pat, who died in 2008. Frank also has an IQ of 154, which puts him in the ‘Very Superior Intelligence’ bracket. No excuse for him saying, ‘We woz robbed’ and such like, then.
Earnings: Frank’s on 135,000 pounds a week.
Love life: Has two kids with Elen Rives, and is now dating Christine Bleakley.
Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo, 25
Plays for: Real Madrid.
Best bits: Firm, tanned torso when he strips off his shirt (every five minutes), that cheeky wink (OK, it got him into trouble/hate mail, but we still like it).
Earnings: Second only to David Beckham when it comes to cash, pulling in more than 20 million pounds a year in wages and endorsements, like that Armani ad. You know, the one that makes us feel funny.
Love life: He’s hot single property, being linked to Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton.
Ivory Coast's Didier Drogba, 32
Plays for: Chelsea.
Best bits: Africa's biggest footballing star is gorge and brave. He saved his country from war by falling to his knees on live TV and begged warring factions to make peace. So they did. Try that Rooney!
Earnings: He's worth about 16m pounds.
Love life: He and wife Alla have three sons. Can’t wait for them to grow up.
France's William Gallas, 32
Plays for: Arsenal.
Best bits: He's a hunkaspunk. Never mind the footie, we want tickets to THAT gun show.
Earnings: Earns 80,000 pounds a week. But he's in a contract wrangle with Arsenal, so may not be earning that for much longer.
Love life: Married exotic stunner Nadege. They met as teens and got hitched last year. He has an eight-year-old daughter, Lea, from a previous relationship.
Brazil's Kaka, 28
Plays for: Real Madrid
Best bits: His name might make you giggle (his baby bro named him that because he couldn't pronounce ‘Ricardo’) but he's still tall, dark and handsome with a killer smile.
Earnings: Sponsorship with Adidas and modelling for Armani boosts his yearly earning well over the 20 million mark.
Love life: Kaka is very religious and married Caroline Celico at Christmas 2005 in Sao Paulo. Their first child, Luca Celico Leite, was born in 2008.
