Soccer players have the highest chance of achieving sport to celebrity crossover, mostly because their sport doesn’t require them to have giant meaty football bodies. They just look like better versions of regular dudes, e.g. David Beckham.
These are the new soccer studs who are WORTHY of becoming the next David Beckham, i.e. achieve fame, stay hot, and marry someone famous and/or hot.
Olivier Giroud - France
He’s ALREADY a center-fold.
Girard Piqué – Spain
He’s Shakira’s boyfriend, so these two are perfectly primed to become the next sports-celeb power couple.
Neymar - Brazil
He’s already landed a Vogue cover. Any reason why he shouldn’t be a star?
Kyle Beckerman – USA
Everyone is talking about "that white guy with the dreadlocks.” So, he’s already a national celebrity.
Claudio Marchisio - Italy
Uhmm, underwear model…der.
Lukas Podolski – Germany
Dat torso tho!
Keisuke Honda - Japan
He’s fashionable and often changes up his hair like Beckham in the early days.
James Milner – England
He’s got that Tom Brady vibe, i.e. we could see him cleaning up WELL at the Met Gala, or something.
Graham Zusi – USA
Graham Zusi has a GREAT head of hair. We’re not even sure why he hasn't been asked to model everything already?
Sergio Agüero – Argentina
Sometimes we feel like you could swap this guy into One Direction, and nobody would notice.
Alexis Sanchez - Chile
This little guy is as cute as a button! Also, boy band material.
