2010 FIFA World Cup: 25 World Cup WAGs We'll Miss Most
Nearly three years in the making, with the final stage culminating in a month long tournament, it's finally over.
The fat lady has sung, and this time around it was, "Ole! Ole, ole, ole!" as Spain won its first ever World Cup.
We'll miss the goals, upsets, excitement, and passion, but these are the 25 WAGs we'll miss the most.
Perhaps the hottest of all World Cup WAG's, Ashley will definitely not be back in 2014 due to the philandering ways of her husband, England's Ashley Cole.
The two actually split up ahead of South Africa, but since divorces take months to finalize, Ashley is technically still a WAG, on paper at least.
Zaira's boyfriend, Argentine striker Diego Forlan, won 2010's Golden Ball, an award I'm sure she had already bestowed upon her beau.
Sylvie van der Vaart
Although he was a part of the starting XI in the Netherlands' three group matches in South Africa, van der Vart eventually lost his starting position once his fellow midfielder, Arjen Robben, fully recovered from injury.
But Rafael can at least take solace in the fact that he gets to come home to Sylvie every night.
Yolanthe Cabau van Kasbergen
Yolanthe recently married Dutch midfielder Wesley Sneijder, who was unable to help the Netherlands win their first ever World Cup despite having a great tournament.
At least he remember his 2009-10 treble with his club Inter Milan (Serie A champions, Coppa Italia, and UEFA Champions League) while he's crying on his new wife's shoulder.
Spain's goalie, Iker Casillas, has more ex-girlfriends than he did saves in South Africa, so we'll highlight his current squeeze, Spanish TV reporter Sara, who probably won't be around in 2014 given Casillas' tendency to use 'em and lose 'em.
Alexandra is the girlfriend of Greece's Georgios Samara, who saw his country notch their first ever goal and win in South Africa 2010.
Although they divorced in 2009, rumor has it that Bianca and U.S. Soccer poster boy Landon Donovan are rekindling their flame.
She could very well be back in 2014 provided Lando is bale to re-learn the Rules of Engagement.
Cristiano Ronaldo goes through women as fast as Iker Casillas so I doubt Irina will be around for much longer.
This is Abigail Clancy, fiancee of England striker Peter Crouch, which just goes to show that looks aren't everything when it comes to romance (I'm talking about him, not her).
It's ironic that Alena's last name actually means "ugly person" in Czech seeing as how she was named Miss Czech Republic 1998.
She's been with Italian goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon for years and the pair have two sons together.
Sadly, David Beckham did not become the first ever Englishman to play in four World Cups, although he did make the trip to South Africa as a coach and that's as good a reason as any for his wife, the former Posh Spice, to make our list.
Zahia is the 18-year old prostitute that added even more chaos to the French camp ahead of the 2010 World Cup when it was revealed that she had slept with several members of Les Bleus while she was still underage.
That makes her a WAG to at least some extent.
Another sex scandal that rocked a European powerhouse was Vanessa's affair with former England captain John Terry.
Why was it such a scandal? For starters, Terry already had a wife.
But more importantly, Vanessa had a relationship as well as a child with Terry's former friend and teammate (for both club and country), Wayne Bridge, who resigned from the Three Lions squad upon learning of his buddy's betrayal.
That's why we have to hand it to John Terry's wife, Toni, for standing by her man in a manner that would make Tammy Wynette proud.
Head coach Fabio Capello stripped Terry of the England captaincy following his affair with Bridge's ex-girlfriend and passed it on to Steven Gerrard, whose wife is pictured here.
Sarah Brandner is the girlfriend of German midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger, and appears to have good taste in beer judging by the color of the ones she's double-fisting here.
Susana is the girlfriend of Brazil's goalkeeper, Julio Cesar, and she is no stranger to the world of WAGs; she used to date Brazilian legend Ronaldo as well.
Jessica is the girlfriend of Argentina's Martin Palmero, and was once quoted as saying a knee injury he suffered in 2008 was "probably my fault."
"I like to play erotic games with Martín, and that's my right. People should understand there's no love-making timetable for a woman like me. I can do it in the morning, afternoon or evening, or all at once, non-stop during the same day. I'm like a dirty volcano."
Black Stars midfielder Sulley Muntari always has his fashionably dressed wife, Miss Ghana Universe 2004, cheering him on.
Gaia de Rossi
I used to despise Daniele De Rossi after he was sent off for an elbow that bloodied the face of USA's Brian McBride's in the 2006 World Cup until I read that he made it a point to personally apologize after the match.
Apparently it was an accident, and judging from this picture, I have a feeling that De Rossi is a pretty good husband and father.
I wouldn't be surprised to learn that Argentina centre back Martin Demichelis stays fit during the off season by salsa dancing for hours on end with his sexy wife Evangelina.
This list's been a little on the light side thus far, so in the name of diversity, here's some color: Hayet, wife of French defender Éric Abidal.
It may sound cliche, but inner beauty is important too, so these last few slides are in honor of Spain's first ever World Cup and three Spanish champions who could have had any girl they wanted, but choose their childhood sweethearts instead, beginning with Xabi Alonso's wife, Nagore.
Villa married his childhood sweetheart in 2003 and has her name engraved on his personalized Adidas F50s.
Patricia played football in her teenage years, which means their daughter will probably have mad skills.
Olalla Domínguez Liste
Fernando Torres failed to score a single goal in South Africa, lost his starting position by the time it was all over, and ended the tournament with a groin injury.
At least he can be grateful for Spain's first ever World Cup, and more importantly, a happy family because some things truly are more important than football.
