Let's Kick It: The Hottest Player From Every World Cup Team

We'd kick it with them any time.

If there's one thing that we love about the World Cup, it's the new variety of hot dudes it brings to our attention. Like, sure, soccer, fun and cool, but let's be real: Soccer players tend to be a handsome bunch, and when you bring the best of the best together, it might as well be an issue of Tiger Beat, but geared toward people out of tweendom who pretend to have fancy hobbies. (Like watching soccer. Ahem, football.)

To celebrate the kickoff of the world's hottest sporting event (sorry, Olympics, some of your sports really bring down your average), we've pored over thousands of statistics pictures to bring you the very hottest soccer player from each participating team.

So grab your fans, turn on your TVs, and may the hottest footballer win.
