While there’s no Posh Spice in the lineup, some of these beauties are definitely getting all the attention at the World Cup in Russia with their smouldering good looks. Proceed with caution, things are getting hot!

Shakira

Longtime partner of Gerard Pique (Spain)

Shakira, 41, is probably one of the world’s most recognisable WAGs, and it’s not just because of her status as Gerard Pique’s longtime partner. The Colombian singer has done well for herself in terms of her music career, and her hit “Waka Waka" was also the official song for the 2010 World Cup, where she met Gerard. They have been inseparable since, with two kiddos added to the brood – Milan, 5, and Sasha, 3.

Girlfriend of Neymar (Brazil)

The 22-year-old Brazilian, who first met the Paris Saint-Germain ace in 2012 after being introduced to each other at a carnival, is a successful actress and model who has won five television awards from seven nominations in Brazil. However, her love life hasn’t been as smooth sailing, the couple, popularly known as ‘Brumar’ in their home country, has had an on-off, rocky relationship for a couple of years. Let’s hope things will remain as rosy as they are now!

Girlfriend of Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal)

The 24-year-old from Spain is the Real Madrid star's most serious love interest since model Irina Shayk. Just last November, Georgina gave birth to their daughter, Alana Martina. And you may very well be looking at a bride-to-be – engagement rumours have been sparked ever since a stunning £615,000 (approx. S$1.1 m) diamond Cartier ring was spotted on her ring finger at the World Cup.

Erika Choperena

Wife of Antoine Griezmann (France)

Erika, who? You may not be familiar with Antoine Griezmann's stunning wife, Erika Choperena, but that’s because the Spanish psychologist prefers to keep a low profile and avoid paparazzi. In fact, the couple opted for a hush-hush wedding at the 11th century Palacio de Galiana in Toledo, Spain last year. See if you can spot Erika and their daughter Mia, 2, in the stands cheering on Antoine in Russia.

Han Hye Jin

Wife of Ki Sung-Yueng (South Korea)

While actress Han Hye Jin, 36, may be eight years older than her beau, age is but a mere number between them. And when it comes to expressing their affection for one another, distance doesn’t get in the way. For example, to show his support for his wife, Sung-Yeung has sent food trucks to her drama set with plenty of delicious snacks and coffee to go round for the crew. And from what we saw on Instagram, Hye-Jin certainly loved the surprise!

Wife of Yannick Carrasco (Belgium)

You’re looking at the former Miss Belgium and model Noémie Happart, who represented her country at both the Miss World and Miss Universe pageants. Happart speaks four languages and was famously kissed by her boyfriend whilst sitting in the first row at the 2016 Champions League final. We wonder how it must have felt to have such an intimate moment broadcasted to millions on television!
