Top 50 Hottest World Cup Players (All-Nations Edition)

Top 50 Hottest World Cup Players

Cristiano Ronaldo (CR7) / Neymar (Lupo) / Tim Howard (Interview)

Consider this Top 50 Hottest World Cup Players list your ultimate guide to the sexiest guys of Brazil 2014. We make that claim with real authority, because we just spent countless hours poring over photos of each and every one of the tournament’s 736 players. Yes, even No. 3 keepers and perennially unused substitutes. To be honest, our eyes are crossed from checking out all the beautiful men playing the Beautiful Game!

You’ll find at least one player from each of the participating 32 countries, and sometimes two. When there were ties, we went to our own version of a penalty shootout, in which we weighed such things as on-pitch performance and playing time with predilections for shirtless pictures and overall fine form (in both senses of the phrase).

We resisted, once again, including Cristiano Ronaldo on a list such as this, since he appears on every other post like it on the entire World Wide Web. But he’s not only the best footballer in the world right now, he’s arguably the best-looking player. And, at the very least, we can all agree he is certainly the best man-scaped one. But we also experienced some pleasant revelations on the 23-man rosters, including Japan’s adorable fashionplate Atsuto Uchida and Ghana’s gorgeous goalie Adam Kwarasey. In addition, we are proud to announce that we are doing our part for U.S.-Iranian relations by featuring the Adam Lambert of Iran, the fun and foxy Alireza Haghighifan.

Our sincere hope is that the results of our research lead to every single match holding at least some interest for you — even if you don’t find soccer as a sport the least bit interesting. The World Cup tournament runs through July 13, so you have plenty of time to check out our Top 50 Hottest World Cup Players 2014, both on the field and in these pics:

Top 10 ‘Game of Thrones’ Hunks

Top 10 Game of Thrones Hunks

The excitement throughout the realm is palpable: HBO’s pop-culture phenomenon ‘Game of Thrones‘ returns with its fourth season on April 6. We love absolutely everything about the series based on George R.R. Martin’s ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ — especially the hot guys! It would take a Dothraki horde to keep us from tuning in next Sunday to drool over all the handsome men in Westeros and beyond. It wasn’t easy deciding which characters would make our list of Top 10 ‘Game of Thrones’ Hunks, especially because we didn’t limit it to the living. Because this show has such a high body count — and our picks could be gone not only before the end of this season but before the end of this sentence (!) — we included men alive, dead and otherwise. Just no Others.

There are so many ‘GoT’ hotties we had to make some serious cuts to some serious studs (something this show is particularly good at). The ruggedly handsome Ned Stark (Sean Bean) was one shower shy of heading it up. The studly Renly Baratheon (Gethin Anthony) got knocked off prematurely, by a guy who hasn’t even appeared on screen yet. And while Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) is totally our favorite character too, he’s simply a nose short of making this list.

Check out our list of the Top 10 ‘Game of Thrones’ Hunks, ranked in order of hotness — because after all, winter is coming! (Vote for your favorite in the poll below — if we’ve somehow missed your man completely, let us know in the comments.)

Top 10 Hottest Football Players 2013

Hottest Football Players

Thirty-two teams, 53-player rosters each. Take it from us: There’s a lot of M-A-N in the NFL. We know, ’cause we looked at them all to produce this list of the National Football League’s 10 hottest players 2013!

We take our research a little too seriously and are crazy picky about our picks. So, if you’re upset that Tim Tebow didn’t make our cut, for instance, please understand that it was because he got cut by the New England Patriots, not us. Blame Bill Belichick (we love doing that)! Speaking of the Pats, veteran tally topper Tom Brady got edged off our list this year by a new teammate. Hope that doesn’t mean Brady won’t throw him the ball!

To make the most of this list — which is ranked in reverse order by hotness — you don’t have to know the difference between a wide receiver and a running back, but you simply must have an appreciation for a tight end (sorry). Keep scrolling below to join us in counting down the Top 10 Sexiest NFL Players of the 2013-2014 Season!

10. DANNY AMENDOLA, New England Patriots

Hottest Football Players: Danny Amendola

Position: Wide receiver
Age: 27
Marital Status: Single (we think … we hope)
What Makes Him Swoonworthy: That smirk, those biceps (tie)

Tom Brady’s brand-new weapon is actually an NFL veteran who most recently played for the St. Louis Rams. At 5’10” the Texas native is called “undersized,” like his pretty Pats predecessor Wes Welker. The oft-hurt Amendola was just listed with a groin injury (no, not there!). Let’s hope it doesn’t keep him off the field: The civic-minded player has pledged to donate $100 for every pass he catches — and $200 for every dropped pass, haters! — to a relief fund for victims of the Boston Marathon bombings.

9. VICTOR CRUZ, New York Giants

Hottest Football Players: Victor Cruz

Position: Wide receiver
Age: 26
Marital Status: Has longtime girlfriend
What Makes Him Swoonworthy: Gotta love a man who can dance!

The player who brought salsa dancing into the stadium has so much style to spare he started his own clothing line. The New Jersey native is so famously well groomed he has even just been named a spokesman for Gillette. Check out how he gets that 6-foot body of his in Super Bowl shape: “Every three weeks or so I get a manicure and pedicure, and every other week I get a massage. You have to do those little things to keep your body in shape. In the long run it pays off.” Oh, my, and how!

50 Hottest Male Olympians 2012 (All-Nations Edition)

Hottest Male Olympians

This I promise you, dear reader: I worked longer and harder on this list than was prudent or even appropriate. AND I did my best to include more countries and sports than you’ll see in other similar photo galleries (and I didn’t include David Beckham or Rafael Nadal — both of whom ARE NOT PARTICIPATING, people! Geez.) If I missed someone special, I want to hear about it in the comments. The more obsure the man and the sport, the better, because the more sexy Olympians there are to see, the better the Olympics experience will be for all of us!

Enjoy the fruits of my labor, and the fruits of these guys’ many, many workouts. Let the Games Begin: The 50 Hottest Male Olympic Athletes of 2012!!!

Swoonworthy’s World Cup Starting 11 (All-Nations Edition)


World Cup logo
First off, let me just say that I took this sh*t seriously. This isn’t one of those lists that was put together in five minutes by some bored, straight intern dude working for $10 a post. The research was intense and grueling. Not a single World Cup squad or player was skipped. That’s right: I considered every single player. So with 23 men on 32 teams, that’s … more math than I can muster. One major thing I learned: There are a lot of cute guys who play the Beautiful Game for a living. A LOT.

The rules:

Rule #1: One and only one player from each national team made the first cut (mi dispiace, Italia; ┼Żao mi Je, Serbia). Yes, this pitted sexy Spaniard vs. sexy Spaniard, which meant hours and hours of debate and photo research (pity me). With 32 teams and only 11 slots, mathematically not every nation could be included on this list, which is not to say its squad was butt ugly, it’s only to say it didn’t have one of the absolutely hottest guys tourneywide in a particular role.

Rule #2: Our formation is the rare 5-2-3 (5 defenders, 2 midfielders, 3 forwards — plus one goalkeeper). Maybe it’s a stretch, but when you have so many handsome defenders to choose from, this is how the cookie crumbles. Who knew defenders would be hottest of the batch?

Rule #3: Avoid Cristiano Ronaldo. He’s on every list like this. It’s boring.

Rule #4: Break Rule #3. He’s hot.

Rule #5: If they’re not playing in the Cup because they are hurt, they are out. Gotta be in it to win it. This isn’t a charity, David Beckham.

Rule #6: You don’t have to be your squad’s greatest player. I figure if you’re good enough to be on your country’s World Cup team, you’re good enough for this list, even if you’re a benchwarmer.

Rule #7: It’s OK if I never heard of you. Everyone’s worth was based only on looks (just like in real life!).

After the jump, Swoonworthy’s World Cup Starting 11 (All-Nations Edition)!
