Top 20 Wildest Football WAGs

0 of 21

    WAG is a term that was originally coined by the British media as a reference to the wives and girlfriends of the England national football team.

    Since then, the WAG tag has stuck, and now it is used as a reference for sportsmen all over the world when referring to their latest fling, long-standing girlfriend or marital spouse.

    Here, we'll take a look at some of the wildest football WAG's of both past and present.

    When I say wild, I am referring to going beyond normal or conventional bounds i.e. Sensational in the looks department.

    So, in no particular order, enjoy.

Anara Atanes

    Anara Atanes has reportedly dated Darren Bent of Aston Villa, Kieron Richardson of Sunderland and Jermaine Pennant of Stoke City over the years.

    Kudos to them.

Loreana Bernal

    Exceptional work by Arteta in putting a ring on this lady's finger.

    Cheryl Cole is a pop star in English band Girls Aloud, but has also done solo work of late.

    Cole is the former wife of England and Chelsea footballer Ashley Cole whom she divorced following revelations he cheated on her multiple times.

    Why Ashley?! Why?!

    Some guys have all the luck.

Sara Brandner

7 of 21

    Bastian Schweinsteiger knew what he was doing when he started dating Sara Brander.

    Not only is she smoking hot, she likes football and she will fetch you beer.

    What more could a man ask for?

Valentina Zambrotta

8 of 21

    According to this article, Ginaluca Zambrotta's wife Valentina Zambrotta is a downhill skater and professional sunbather.

    She certainly seems to have the ideal physique for both pastimes.

Francesca Chillemi

    Former Miss Italy and present-day actress Francesca Chillemi is the former girlfriend of Liverpool midfielder Alberto Aquilani.

Zaira Nara

    Nara was once engaged to Diego Forlan, but they have since gone their separate ways.

Carly Zucker

11 of 21

    Joe Cole is married to Carly Zucker, who appeared in the Lynx advert that all men love (see above photo)

    Whatever continent you live on, go out and buy some immediately.

Irina Shayk

12 of 21

    Cristiano Ronaldo and Irina Shayk apparently met when they were on set together having their photos taken for an Armani shoot.

    That's the type of thing that happens to me all the time.

Yolanthe Sneijder-Cabau

13 of 21

    Believe it or not, Wesley Sneijder's wife's name was even harder to pronounce before she married the Dutch footballer.

    Yolanthe Cabau van Kasbergen was the first mouthful.

Abigail Clancy

14 of 21

    Six-foot-five and gangly England centre forward Peter Crouch somehow managed to talk Abigail Clancy into dating him, and then marrying him.

    It couldn't have been his fancy footwork that impressed her.

Victoria Beckham

15 of 21

    David Beckham is perhaps the most famous footballer that has ever lived, so it stands to reason that his wife is a former pop star turned fashionista.

    Here, Victoria is modeling her latest line of underwear.

Edurne

16 of 21

    Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea might not be capable of catching a moving football, but he knows how to catch himself a hot girlfriend.

Imogen Thomas

17 of 21

    Ryan Giggs was reported to have had an affair with Welsh beauty Imogen Thomas after weeks of trying to impose a superinjunction banning the press from releasing details of his misdemeanor.

    Unlucky Mr. Cole.
