A feast for our eyes, this World Cup is.
As the competition heats up, we can now confirm one thing: soccer players are god’s gift to mankind.
Let’s be honest, looking at them chiselled abs and boyish faces are enough to make any girl feel a lil’ something. Like seriously, hot damn, bless our eyes and soul.
We know some of the good ones have since been kicked out of the world cup (read: the entire Spanish team and Cristiano Ronaldo), but fret not, because there’s plenty of other quality fish in the sea.
Here are the top 10 ogle-worthy soccer players who are still in the competition, in all their full glory.
You’re very welcome.
1. Neymar de Silva Santos Junior, Brazil
The world’s most expensive soccer player, Neymar, or Neymar Jr., made headlines when he transferred from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain for a record €222 million.
Add on his charming, colourful persona and devastatingly skilful soccer technique (heck, he was part of the golden trio with Messi and Suarez when in Barcelona), it’s little wonder why he’s one of the most famous and valuable athletes in the world right now.
2. Philippe Coutinho, Brazil
The Brazilians are clearly doing something right.
Another prolific player from the Brazilian National team, the midfielder’s work has been nothing short of stellar this world cup, starting from his brilliant goal to draw with Switzerland in Brazil’s opening match to his breakthrough goal in the match against Costa Rica.
He’s also the third most expensive player in the world, with Barcelona reportedly paying €160m for his transfer from Liverpool.
Hot, rich and handsome. Swipe right.
3. Olivier Giroud, France
With a face of an angel, body of a Greek god, miracles do exist.
Having been crowned the hottest player in the premier league in 2015, Olivier Giroud is still arguably THE hottest player in the World Cup.
Aged like fine wine.
4. Kylian Mbappé, France
Nicknamed “the 37” and “le petit Obama”, Mbappé is undoubtedly the star of the French national team, with already 3 goals under his belt in this world cup.
His impeccable skills and powerful grace have drawn many an admirer, and hearsay his personable charisma has even led to an invitation to join in a diplomatic lunch with French president Emmanuel Macron.
At just 19 years old, Mbappe is set to take the world by storm.
5. James Rodriguez, Colombia
Okay, Latinos are hot, period.
6. Roman Burki, Switzerland
This hottie is the ambassador for Terre des hommes (Tdh), Switzerland’s largest child aid organisation, and believes in using sport to change children’s lives for the better.
Such a sweetie.
Definitely a keeper.
7. Fabian Schär, Switzerland
This dude looks like Prince Charming and is the literal definition of tall, dark and handsome.
I mean, look at those plump, kissable lips. Ain’t need no Kylie Jenner lip kit to look that fine.
8. Kim Shin Wook, Korea
Shin-Wook definitely wins brownie points as the striker for the Korean team, and for his deliciously lean six-foot-six (~1.98m) frame.
He’s virtuous too and is touted “Christian brother” by his teammates because he purportedly reads the bible before each game.
Yes, we praise the Lord for blessing us with you too.
9. Igor Akinfeev, Russia
Igor Akinfeev won hearts after Russia’s stunning win over world favourites Spain yesterday, putting on the performance of his career.
As captain of the Russian football team, this talented stud is definitely leading by example and is bound to be a national hero in Russia today.
10. Radamel Falcao, Colombia
This is just further proof that Latinos are hot. As striker, captain of the Colombian national team, and “King of the Europa League” or “El Tigre”, Falcao is a triple threat.
Bonus, he looks good with both long and short hair, though we’d have to say we prefer his current suave style.
