It’s World Cup time! Whether you’re rooting for a specific team (go Nigeria!), or you have no idea what’s going on with this year’s competition–or any FIFA World Cup for that matter, you can always look forward to seeing some good looking men!  We did some looking around and found footballers of all different backgrounds who are lean and lovely. So here are 10 men participating in this year’s FIFA World Cup who are definite cuties, and this week’s evening eye candy.


Cristiano Ronaldo

Age: 29

Weight: 176

Height: 6’1″

Team: Portugal

What We Like: The abs, on abs, on abs. Ronaldo (a forward) is a solidly-built dude and is currently dominating the game, killing it in underwear ads (for Armani) and making the ladies swoon.


Patrice Evra

Age: 33

Weight: 159

Height: 5’8″

Team: France

What We Like: The accent! The lips! Aaaaand the fact that he plays for Manchester United as a left-back and attacker. Just saying, I love my ManU.


Nigel de Jong

Age: 29

Weight: 159

Height: 5’9″

Team: Netherlands

What We Like: He’s rugged. We like the tattoos, and we like the fact that outside of soccer (he’s a midfielder by the way), he’s a businessman. He owns a specialty car dealership company in Europe and in the Middle East.


Kevin-Prince Boateng

Age: 27

Weight: 190

Height: 6’1″

Team: Ghana

What We Like: Another rugged fella, Boateng has some great bone structure, a muscular body, some gorgeous eyes, and those lips!


Fabian Johnson

Age: 26

Weight: 163

Height: 6’0″

Team: United States

What We Like: The right back is a cutie, plain and simple. And I personally have a thing for lanky men–don’t judge me.



Age: 22

Weight: 142

Height: 5’9″

Team: Brazil

What We Like: While we’re not crazy about his recent hair choices for the World Cup, Neymar (who can play both forward and winger) is pretty dreamy. So dreamy in fact, that he covered Brazilian Vogue with model and Brazilan beauty, Giselle Bündchen recently.

Asamoah Gyan

Age: 28

Weight: 169

Height: 5’11”

Team: Ghana

What We Like: He’s handsome, but what we dig most is how good the striker is at the game. He’s the captain of a pretty talented (and hunky) Ghanaian national team.


Tim Howard

Age: 35

Weight: 209

Height: 6’3″

Team: United States

What We Like: The U.S. goalie is a veteran of the game, and while we like the chrome dome and beard, we dig his killer smile and tattoo appreciation too.


Robin Van Persie

Age: 30

Weight: 157

Height: 6’2″

Team: Netherlands

What We Like: The Dutch footballer is quite debonair, and he’s a killer striker. I assume it’s the smile that distracts his opponents as he scores goal after goal.

Yaya Touré

Age: 31

Weight: 198

Height: 6’2″

Team: Ivory Coast

What We Like: He’s a great midfielder, but he’s also a giving dude. Touré is a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations and has campaigned against elephant poaching. Loves his game, loves the animals, and loves the environment. Gotta love him!
