The next women's World Cup is still a year away (in Germany), but if FIFA wants to get a jump on marketing the event there are a select few women the international body should put in the forefront.
We have heard all about the WAGs of soccer, the hottest fans and a combination of both. These women, however, live the sport. These are the women who are on the pitch, making challenges and throwing their bodies around.
They are the sexiest female soccer players in the world and they deserve their attention.
Now that's more like it for the Swedish national team. The blond and the pigtails works.
Mia Hamm is the gold standard of American soccer. While she may not be THE hottest woman on the list, the combination of her looks and skill puts her on top.
Osbourne, another blond winner from the U.S. National team.
Tarpley is a 27-year-old forward who has been on the U.S. National Team since 2003. She is just one of the number of blond bombshells on Team USA.
Chastain made herself a legend in U.S. soccer (men's or women's) with one celebratory removal of her shirt in her World Cup-clinching goal in 1999. She decided to go much further than that yet in years ahead, and we thank her.
Unitt, the sexist footballer in England, is seen here wrapping herself in nothing but St. George's cross.
A rarity for the Swedish national team, a brunette! The gorgeous Landstrom will certainly stand out in that team photo.
Amy Taylor, the football wonder from down under (Australia that is).
Andrioli is a 22-year-old Brazilian soccer player who brings the "Brazilian" wax to the pitch. And we thank her for that.
Gonzalez is the star on the Mexican national team and for good reason. Ay Carumba!
Domingues is the other darling of Brazilian soccer. She is a rarity in that she is an athlete AND WAG after being married to Ronaldo for four years.
Solo is not only extremely good looking, but her position as goalkeeper I think bumps her hotness level up even more.
Now, talk about the gold standard. American women's soccer has a serious battle on its hands to compete with the gorgeous Heather Mitts.
Honestly, who wouldn't want to face off against this team of soccer hotties?
