Yesterday millions of people around the world tuned in to watch the opening match of the FIFA World Cup in Russia. The excitement and energy will be high for the next 5 weeks.

However, if you are like us, (not very big sporting event fans) then you will probably not be as enthusiastic to tune in for every match.

BUT, if you find yourself in a situation where you are present for one of the many 90 minute matches - there is a silver lining.

We've rounded up our 10 favourite (and gorgeous) players to inspire you to keep watching. Here they are, in no particular order: (you're welcome rubies ;)
