Ciao Bello! The 5 Hottest World Cup Players From Italy
For you, Fabio, anything. Anything you want. Hang on, that doesn’t say ‘shopping’, does it?! No? Ok, where were we? Images: Getty Images via Daylife
In the past we’ve made no secret of our feelings towards the Italians. They’re just so darn obliging. Removing kits after games, posing in their pants for shilling purposes, they fulfill every Kickette criteria we can think of, plus a few we aren’t allowed to post.
The Italian squad’s naked power is such, they even compel clothing belonging to complete strangers to magically remove itself when in their proximity. We’ve even managed to overlook the headgear howlers that seem to have caught on in the training camp.
So you can imagine how difficult it was to narrow this lot down. But in honour of the WC we’ve made an effort. *sigh*. Let us know what you think. But before you do, take pity. This one was hard.
What can we say? You may run on those pretty legs, Canns, and you may hide. But we will only warn you once. We run pretty fast for a gang of women whose usual exercising quotient is limited to fighting over a cookie jar. And when we catch, we always bite.
The World Cup does not need to be without this level of testosterone-tweaked totty. It doesn’t. Having slipped a disc in Italy’s opening fixture, speculation as to whether Gigi will be fit to play again in the competition is rife. Join hands and pray for a miracle, people.
Astonishing flexibility aside (ahem), Zambrotta has appeared on our radar before. For those of you unconvinced by his lovely but slightly less than rock hard abs, allow us to direct your attention to this. And this time, focus on the face, people, on the face. Not the footwear.
Salvatore is twenty-three years old and plays in central defence for Genoa.
Yes, we will have two of these please, and a side of bruschetta. Anything to follow?
Maybe a towel.
No Italian line up would be complete without Gattuso, who was an integral part of the 2006 World Cup winning side and recently announced he will retire after this year’s tourney. Furry but not frightful, Gennaro also has a tendency to get a bit ‘handsy’ (which we love) and looks very good on a bicycle (left). Very good indeed.
It would be rude of us to overlook all of you tramp lovers out there. So for those who like their men crazed, half naked and with food stuck in their beard**, here’s Danny!
** Please note: Kickette employs a non-discriminatory policy in regard to scraggy facial hair. We have however, sent a crate of razors to the Italy NT training camp. We feel it can’t hurt.
