Ever since the 2006 World Cup, when the wives and girlfriends of the England national team partied it up in the bars of Baden Baden, we've all developed an obsession with footballers' other halves.
It's got to the point where the acronym WAG has virtually become a noun—even a job title—in its own right.
Picking a starting XI of WAGs in relation to the playing position of their respective beaus is hardly the height of anyone's journalistic career, but it's not exactly a chore either.
Honourable mentions could go to scores of young women who have either split from their former footballing partners or have seen them retire from the game, not least Cheryl Cole, Imogen Thomas, Natalie Fassi and Noemi Lenoir.
