0 of 20

    The term WAG originated in England to collectively term the wives and girlfriends of the English football team at the 2006 World Cup.

    It quickly became a worldwide term and has spread to the United States, a country well versed in glamarous and stunning women.

    Here we look at the hottest women connected with the men of US soccer, spanning the MLS and the US national team players spread throughout the world.

    Enjoy the aesthetics!

20. Dina Mcbride

    WAG of: Brian McBride, ex-US international striker

    Brian McBride is one of the finest goalscorers the US has ever produced, hitting the back of the net over 150 times for his various club teams and 30 times fro his country.

    He also showed his ability to score off the field, with his stunning wife Dina, whom he posed with for the 2000 Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition which is pictured here.

19. Kalia Packett

2 of 20

    WAG of: Luke Sassano, Sporting Kansas City defender/midfielder

    Not exactly a household name, Sassano was drafted by the New York Red Bull in 2008 before eventually moving onto Sporting Kansas City in 2011.

    Despite his lack of notoriety outside MLS circles, he certainly has not problems impressing the ladies, in particular, the beautiful Kalia Packett.

18. Michelle Allred

    WAG of: Benny Feilhaber, New England Revolution & US national team midfielder

    Female fans of US soccer have long been admirers of Benny and his boyish smile.

    (Ex) WAG of: Taylor Twellman: former New England Revolution & US striker, current ESPN broadcaster

    Twellman possessed tremendous ability and could have been one of the greatest strikers ever to play in the MLS if his career wasn't cut short through a series of concussions.

    Perhaps more disappointing than his career not reaching it's potential, was his marriage not doing so either. He divorced is high-school sweetheart Lindsay in 2008

16. Alexis Immig

5 of 20

    WAG of: Fredy Montero, Seattle Sounders striker

    Columbian striker Montero, joined Seattle Sounders on loan for their inaugural season in 2009.

    Since then, he has signed perminantly with the MLS club, and is now settling down in more ways than one.

    I think most men would be willing to settle down with the stunning US native Alexis Immig.

15. JoJo

6 of 20

    (Ex) WAG of: Freddy Adu, US National team striker

    Freddy Adu exploded onto the scene at the age of 14, becoming the youngest American athelete to sign a professional sports contract.

    Not long after he was dating 15-year-old pop singer JoJo.

    The relationship lasted over a year, but the two maintain they are still good friends.

    Don't worry gents, JoJo in now 20, so it's okay the check her out guilt free!

14. Mariela Esterella

7 of 20

    WAG of: Danleigh Borman, Toronto FC midfielder/defender

    Danleigh was just traded to Toronto from MLS Eastern Conference rivals, the New York Red Bulls.

    While at the Red Bulls, Borman met Mariela who worked for the club as a brand rep, a job that is best described as a group of hot girls promoting the team in sexy RBNY apparel.

    Who wouldn't want to buy Red Bulls tickets with someone like this promoting them?

13. Andrea Rajačić

8 of 20

    WAG of: Thierry Henry, New York Red Bulls striker

    Since the breakdown of his first marriage, global superstar Thierry Henry has been dating model Andrea Rajačić for the last two years.

    A Bosnian native, Andrea met Thierry in Barcelona in 2008.

12. Amanda Barletta

9 of 20

    WAG of Michael Bradley, US national team midfielder

    Michael Bradley's dad, Bob Bradley, is head coach of the US national team and obviously approves of his son's performance on the field due to his consistant presence in the national team.

    I'm sure Bob also approves of his son's off field performance given the stunning looks of his girlfriend, a former University of Rhode Island tennis player, who Michael is due to marry in the summer.

11. Rachel Perry

10 of 20

    WAG of: Clint Mathis, Ex-US international midfielder/forward

    Mathis is one of the finest players the United States has produced and during the prime of his career was spotted out at movie premiers with Canadian TV presenter Rachel Perry.

    Well done Clint!

11 of 20

    WAG of: James Riley, Seattle Sounders defender/midfielder

    Entering his sixth season in MLS, Riley previously played for the New England Revolution and San Jose Earthquakes before moving onto Seattle.

    Signing for Seattle worked out to be a good move, it's where he met Danielle Lynn Schleiffers who works as a Washington Jagerette.

9. Leigh Ellinger

    WAG of: Jeremy Hall, Portland Timbers midfielder/defender

    Jeremy Hall currently plays for Portland in Major League Soccer, but attended college at Maryland, the home state of his stunning girlfriend Leigh.

    WAG of: Clint Dempsey, US national team striker/midfielder

    Clint Dempsey has proved to be one of the most successful American imports in Europe and is a fan favourite at his club Fulham.

    WAG of: Carlos Bocanegra, US national team captain

    Despite being captain of the US national team, Carlos has managed to keep his private life private, which is why we don't even know the name of his lady-friend seen accompanying him at the ESPY's.

    One this we do know about her though is that she is smoking hot!

5. Bianca Kajlich

16 of 20

    (Ex) WAG of Landon Donovan, LA Galaxy and US national team forward/midfielder

    Landon and actress Bianca were one of the first glamor couples of US soccer during their three year marriage.

    Since divorcing in 2009, Landon has further improved his reputation as a footballer after a successful spell at Everton and goalscoring heroics in the World Cup, but it's probably not quite the same without this stunner by his side.

4. Rachida Brakni

17 of 20

    WAG of: Eric Cantona, New York Cosmos Director of Soccer

    One of the biggest names in world football, "King" Eric has shunned many opportunities to return to soccer since his retirement from playing with Manchester United in 2007, but took the New York Cosmos offer to become their Director of Soccer even though the club does not yet have a team, stadium or league to play in.

    When moving to New York, the Frenchman also brought along his stunning second wife, French actress Rachide Brakni who he met on the set of Outremangeur in 2002.

3. Salome Khorasanchi

18 of 20

    WAG of: Oguchi Onyewu, US national team defender

    No athlete enjoys spending an extended period of time out injured.

    But in Gooch's case, I'm sure there are worse people to help nurse you back to health than his Persian supermodel girlfriend Salome Khorasanchi.

2. Jamie Lee Darley

19 of 20

    WAG of: Sacha Kljestan, US national team midfielder

    Well done Sacha!

    There are only a select few men out there that can say they are engaged to a former Victoria's Secret model, and the US midfielder is one of them.

1. Victoria Beckham

20 of 20

    WAG of: David Beckham, LA Galaxy midfielder

    The original and still the Queen bee of all WAG's worldwide.

    In terms of sheer beauty, you could argue some of the other girls on this list could be ranked number one instead.

    But when all is considered, Posh Spice is still the epitome of what a WAG should be and the one that all others should aspire to.

    Hard to believe it's been 15 years since she burst onto the scene with the Spice Girls in 1996, she is still looking stunning at 37.
