It’s time to learn more about how your roving eyes are indirectly related to your level of social awkwardness, Kickettes, then behold the latest iteration of our popular personality quizzes.

In honour of Australia Day, (a public holiday occurring tomorrow that all should have off from work but probably don’t), we’re dying to know how you like your abs.

For this reason, and this reason alone, we at Kickette applaud the international friendly and will campaign for its continued presence in the footballing calendar.
