All you Posh and Beckham fans, its time-out. Soccer - off the field - is not about the Beckhams anymore. We now have Sakira, Irina, to drool over.
What's football without the glamorous WAGs — the wives and girlfriends — of heroes on the field. But they are not just trophy WAGs, these beauties are some of the most successful and beautiful ladies.
Clint Dempsey & Bethany Dempsey:
Clint Dempsey is one of the key players for the United States men’s national soccer team in its 2014 World Cup campaign. The forward has been a fixture on the national squad for almost a decade. His fearlessness, aerial skill and ability to score quickly make him a potent goal-scoring threat.
U.S. midfielder Clint Dempsey’s wife Bethany Dempsey, 29, got in news for bodypaint for the 2010 SI Swimsuit Issue. Bethany and Clint dated for a year before he got married; the big day was on July 28, 2007 at St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church.
Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal) & Irina Shayk
Ronaldo is widely considered the best player in the world thanks to his lethal combination of speed, power, and skill. A forward's main job is to score or create scoring opportunities, and Ronaldo arguably does this well than anyone. It's fair to say that one of the most famous WAGs on the face of the Earth at the moment would have to be the stunning model Irina Shayk, who dates Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.
She has made her own personal fortune on catwalks and photo shoots. But she is also one of the world's hottest women with her famous voluptuous lips, long legs and thick dark hair. She was also on the cover model for the 2011 issue. She has been dating footballer Cristiano Ronaldo since may 2010 and both have also featured in Nike's 'Risk Everything' commercial.
Lionel Messi & Antonella Roccuzzo :
Those who don't think Ronaldo is the best player in the game are probably Messi fans. There's no one in the world who is as creative or as quick as Messi is, and what he does with ball is magic. Messi has had to be better than everyone else on the ball in part because he lacks the physicality other players do. At 5'7" he's often the shortest player on the field and gives up a lot of size to players like Ronaldo (6'1").
Behind every successful man, there is a woman. Behind Lionel Messi, there is Antonella Roccuzzo. They have been engaged for three years and in 2012, the couple gave birth to their first child, Thiago Messi. Antonella Roccuzzo is a simple girl who dislikes being in the limelight. Despite her relationship with one of the most famous soccer players in the world, Antonella guards her privacy. They have always been very discreet, and their public appearances are scarce.
Neymar & Gabriela Lenzi:
Neymar's skills are superb, and he owns a myriad of fakes, feints, and dribbles that can make a defender look foolish. He's a throwback to the classic "Brazilian style of football", which is built on creativity, speed, finesse and dribbling skills rather than the bruising style that some Europeans and Americans employ.
Long ago Neymar dated Carolina Dantas then Brazilian actress Bruna Marquezine and now the charismatic striker is dating this pretty model named Gabriella Lenzi also spelled Gabriela Lenzi.
Brazilian girls. There’s nothing like them.
Sergio Ramos (Spain) & Pilar Rubio
In soccer, there's a lot of glory in putting the ball in the net. Defenders have to do the dirty work, and don't necessarily get the credit they deserve.Ramos is one of the best defenders in the world, and is the motor for the sturdy Spanish defense. His speed and anticipation make him stand out. And there are times where it's as if he's seeing the play develop ahead of the forwards he's defending.
Either central defender or right back pro footballer Sergio Ramos’ girlfriend Pilar Rubio is super-hot! She might be a few years older than Spanish soccer player but they make one good looking couple! The 27 year old who play for Real Madrid and her Spanish gorgeous girlfriend have been the subject of persistent break up rumors!
