Your World Cup 2010 Wives And Girlfriends Guide

by NATASHA STORER · June 1, 2010

The time has come once again, when the boys with balls come out to play! But for those not interested in watching sweaty, muscly men play 90mins of kicking a round ball around to still have a game end with a scoreless draw - then there is another type of sport watching taking part in the stands. WAG watching!-

The Queen Bee

She is who the term WAG (wife and girlfriend) was originally coined - the one and only Posh Spice aka her majesty, Victoria Beckham.

Having been on top of the WAG heap since her engagement to David Beckham in 1998, the couple are undoubtedly a formidable pair. More famous together than apart, their joint wealth is estimated at over $225million.

Unlike most WAG's, Posh was actually the more famous of the two-some when they originally met claiming:

"I didn't really know who he was. I was never into football."

But Posh used her dominating fashion sense and helped groom David into a worldwide brand.

While Becks is not playing in this year's World Cup, due to a foot injury, you can be damned if Posh will relinquish her title of Queen Bee of the WAG's.

The English Rose

Cheryl Cole is the estranged wife of Chelsea/England star Ashley Cole, otherwise known as the English Tiger Woods, after one mistress came forward after another regarding his 'indiscretions'. While the status of their marriage is still up in the air, rumor has it that Cheryl won't be attending the World Cup, as she is too busy with her solo singing career and being a judge on Britain's X Factor.

The Chav

Coleen Rooney, is the young wife of English striker (and main hope of progressing throughout the tournament) Wayne Rooney. Trash-tastic, Coleen famously brought her tanning consultant to the 2006 World Cup in Germany. Wonder what entourage she will bring along to South Africa, a personal vay-jazzler perhaps?

The English side is understandably WAG headquarters, as criticised by English Captain Rio Ferdinand regarding the past World Cup in Germany:

"We became a bit of a circus, if I'm honest, in terms of the whole WAG situation. It seems like there was a big show around the whole England squad," Ferdinand said. "That then transposed itself into the team. It was like watching a theater unfolding and football almost became a secondary element to the main event. People were worrying more about what people were wearing and where they were going, rather than the England football team."

While there will be a steady stream of Daily News gossip coming out of the England WAG camp, that doesn't mean their aren't some International WAG's looking to up-seed the reigning English Queens.

The Ronaldo Handbag

The hottest of the hot soccer players taking part in the World Cup and number 1 player in the world, Christiano Ronaldo will hopefully be unveiling his latest WAG for the tournament, with rumor having been swirling that he had hooked up with reality queen, and her of the big derriere Kim Kardashian.

Only last week though, new reports had him linked to swim suit model Irina Shayk (as well as accompanying sexy boat shower pics).

The Showgirl

Her name was Lola , Ilary, she was a showgirl With yellow feathers in her hair and a dress cut down to there (it's a WAG wardrobe staple - the slutty dress)

Ilary Blasi, the wife of Roma Captain and Italian superstar Francesco Totti is a former showgirl and model, who was pushing for her aging star to make the La Nazionale side, so that she could check out South Africa, a new party destination she has not yet visited.

The American

Rules of Engagement star Bianca Kajlich is currently separated from USA star Landon Donovan, but we will still be keeping an eye out to see if she turns up in South Africa for WAG publicity central.

While USA is small fry in world soccer circles, Landon is a renowned and respected player in soccer and when he married upcoming actress Bianca in 2006 it looked like our own D grade version of 'Posh and Beck's' was born!

The Aussie Sheila

Sheree Murphy actually may be an English soap star, having been made famous by her role on Emmerdale and later on I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Outta Here! ( she finished 2nd), but she actually managed to bag herself number 1 Aussie hottie, former Liverpool star, Harry Kewell. Still happily married, with three kids and no imminent scandals, Sheree has declared she will be sitting with the Aussie WAG's this tournament, as she claims they are less affected by the whole WAG culture and (like every other Aussie we know) are just more laid-back!
