Copa America Centenario is in full swing here in the United States. Not to be outdone, Euro 2016—basically the World Cup of Europe—kicks off in France tomorrow. To get you primed for all the heart-stopping action (and a few flops), here’s a look at 11 of the sexiest wives and girlfriends of the competitors. No, the entire list isn’t just Ronaldo’s girlfriends and ex-girlfriends (like current bae Maja Darving, above). But it could have been. Oh yes, it definitely could have been…
Maja Darving, the Danish model girlfriend of Real Madrid and Portugal superstar Cristiano Ronaldo. (This is whom he’s dating after breaking up with Sports Illustrated cover girl Irina Shayk. Practice your soccer, guys!)
OK, fine, one more slide of her…
Alright, seriously, this is the LAST one…
Monica Ercoli, wife of Nantes and Albania defender Lorik Cana.
Michele Lacroix, girlfriend of high-priced (and baby-faced) Manchester City and Belgium attacker Kevin De Bruyne.
Katja Butylina, girlfriend of Bayern Munich and Austria defender David Alaba.
Candy-Rae Fleur, girlfriend of Manchester United and Netherlands defender/midfielder Daley Blind.
Ludivine Sagna, the bikini-fond wife of Manchester City and France defender Bacary Sagna.
Ann-Kathrin Brommel, girlfriend of Bayern Munich and Germany attacking midfielder (and scorer of the World Cup-winning goal in 2014) Mario Gotze.
OK, because we know we have a lot of readers from Germany, here’s one more slide of her.
Daniella Semaan, girlfriend of Chelsea and Spain midfielder Cesc Fabregas.
Emma Rhys-Jones, girlfriend of Real Madrid and Wales winger (and most expensive player in the world) Gareth Bale.
Viktoria Varga, girlfriend of Southampton and Italy striker Graziano Pelle.
OK fine, one more of Viktoria. Enjoy the tournament!
