If our dream team of gorgeous soccer players didn't get you in the spirit for the World Cup, check out their counterparts: the WAGs. A clever acronym for "wives and girlfriends," WAGs can be found in the stands cheering on their high-profile lovers. Of course, many of them are beautiful, accomplished, tabloid-ready celebs in their own right. Here are the WAGs to look out for and a few exes who deserve to be included in the WAG hall of fame.
WAG cred: Only 20, Sarah is getting much attention as the girlfriend of German midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger.
Random fact: Along with other WAGs, she got decked out in barely-there body paint for Sports Illustrated 2010 swimsuit edition.
WAG cred: Vanessa has a son with England's Wayne Bridge, but they're no longer together after she had an affair with his married Chelsea teammate John Terry. To make matters worse, she also allegedly had relations with other Chelsea players.
Random fact: Thanks to the affairs, the French lingerie model had to deny that she's a sex maniac earlier this year.
WAG cred: Cheryl married England's Ashely Cole in 2006. Last month she filed for divorce from Ashley, citing his "unreasonable behavior." He admitted to sending nude pics of himself to other women.
Random fact: A pop star in her own right, Cole is a member of the group Girls Aloud, a solo artist, and judge on Britain's The X Factor.
WAG cred: The 24-year-old is married to striker Wayne Rooney and she just celebrated their son's first birthday at the family's villa in Barbados.
Random fact: She met husband Wayne when they were 12, and they've been dating since they were 16. She even stood by him when he admitted to visiting prostitutes !
