Dutch Masters: The 5 Hottest World Cup Players From The Netherlands

Image via Reuters

You’ve got to give it to The Netherlands: they take a colour most of us would shy away from in the shops (neon orange) and make it the “it” shade to wear. Granted, the physical stats of the boys wearing the bright Oranje kits are so visually appealing, it’s hard to remain objective, but there you have it.

The Dutch have a real chance this year, with an ace squad who aren’t afraid to get dirty. So put your dry cleaners on speed dial and check out our top 5 hottest Dutch players in the World Cup.

Arsenal shirtless1. Robin van Persie

Where else would RVP go but at the top of our “Definite Must-Do’s” list? He’s a fabu player, he gives good short-tent, his hair often resembles a duck’s bottom, and he’s a doting daddy. He also does a mean pole dance.

Random: we were gripped by his entrance in Ryan Babel’s recent Ustream video spotted on ONTD. Robin came in the room; he carried a cooler. We found this compelling.


2. Nigel de Jong

Nigel may be a tad on the pocket-sized stature list, but that doesn’t stop his sex-appeal. The 25-year-old Manchester City midfielder has that bad-arse kind of look to him that so many of us at the HQ need and want in our lives.

He also pulls down people’s shorts, a practice we highly approve of. However, he does come with bonus softie points: he’s papa to an adorable little girl.


3. Rafael van der Vaart

This one is easy: he’s happy to get dirty whilst shirtless,¬† openly adores his gorgeous wife Sylvie, and is a proud papa to son Damian. Sold.


4. Ibrahim Afellay

Ibrah is 24 and has played his entire career in Eindhoven¬†for PSV and was recently on the radar for Arsenal, Juve, HSV and Barca. He’s Dutch-Moroccan, proving yet again, that a combination of things = the best things (peanut butter and chocolate, strawberries and cream, champagne and daily life).

FYI, Ibrahim may be rumoured to be dating a Playboy playmate, but he’s still a bit of a shy boy at heart. Oh, and we’ve been told by a skilled observer that his skin is smooth enough for him to moonlight for Olay.


5. Gregory Van Der Wiel

A defender who often plays right back, Gregory van der Wiel makes fireworks go off whenever he removes his shirt. We’re not kidding. That’s the sign of a true ab-skilled professional.

Greg’s got a reputation as a bit of a troublemaker and was part of a recent Twitter scandal, (tweeting a photo while out getting his swerve on at a Lil’ Wayne concert when he was supposed to be kicking a ball around.) Nev mind. When Cash Money calls, you gotta answer.

Thanks M!

    Ibi!! He's so gorgeous and beautiful and nice and talented. Love him. He's the most beautiful (because you can describe him that way) footballer out there. In skills and looks.

    And what to say for Robin? The man is sex on legs.

  2. Natnova says:

    OMG!!!! Van der Wiel is sooooooo hot!!1

    My god, those abs, that chest…..*wiping drool*

    I hope he scores soon, so he can remove that shirt….

  3. Aisha says:

  4. Ess-Jay says:

    Mmmmm, good gosh. That's made my day!!! They're all so sexy…. The Dutch team has got to be one of the sexiest teams out there… Second, barely, to the Spanish team…. Mmmmm yum! I love the World Cup! ;)

    • JaneSpotting says:

      Agree with you 100%…Van Persie is especially delish!

      • Ess-Jay says:

        Indeed!! He’s the only reason I bother watching Arsenal play (and Cescy ;) )… But I’ve been developing a soft spot for van der Wiel… Mmmm so sexy! And jus look at that chest… Yuuuum! :P

  9. Annette says:

    I'm so proud of my Dutchie boys!

    I think you could even make a top 10 with the Dutch NT :P

    And remember that Ibi is Moroccan, his parents won't approve him to date a Playmate ;) don't worry about that, my loves

  10. Jillian says:

    awww, What about Huntelaar?

  11. Lora says:

    Thank you Kickette. This is exactly what I've been waiting for. Oh my boys <3.

  12. def says:

    What?? No Sneijder?? Shame on you, Kickette….

  13. Ali says:

    Van der Wiel adds anyone who requests to be his friend on Facebook.

  14. Moi says:

    Ahhhh I asked for this post *cheer*

    Ibi and Robin, hallelujah.

  15. Tora says:

    No Huntelaar? I really like that guy. :) And Robbie is just… :)

  16. Holland says:

  18. Rachel says:

    Khalid Boulahrouz should be on the list!!!

  19. liesjuhh says:

    Ibiiiii :D

  20. Merle says:

    Its Giovanni, Stijn, Maarten, Mark…

    • LaVidaLoca says:

      they never mark if it´s sarcasm or honestly meant, so i didn´t know what to say about this "top" list …

      maybe it´s a "hottest dutch not in a hospital" top list, as even some stronger wind gets dutch teamplayers into hospital for weeks …

      at least they kept robben out, who has the sex-faxtor and freshness of a U60 teamplayer …

  21. CR_9_Lady says:

    RBV is the reason why I want to go to the Netherlands for a few days *.*

  22. emma says:

    PERFECT LIST. van Persie deserves to be number one! love him!!!!

  23. Yasmin says:

    Come on, no Sneijder?? You have another “pocket-sized” Dutchie!

  24. Canna Fan says:

    Where is Stijn Schaars???? :(

  25. Erin says:

    What, no Dirk Kuyt? Ok…I love Dirkie to bits, but even I couldn’t put him on a hot list. ;)

  26. Alisha says:

    Yay Afellay’s there, he’s my favourite by far! I’m from Scotland and went to Scotland vs Holland last September just to see him but he got injured just before the game and couldn’t play :( I never knew he was rumoured to be dating a Playboy playmate though :( My thoughts of him have gone slightly downhill now.

  27. senora ramos says:

    vdv ftw!!! and i have a strong dislike for nigel. i am biased for his horrible tackle on stu

  28. MEER. says:

    Ahw, Ibi… I've sort of seen him grow up at PSV Eindhoven, my club. He's quite the cheeky boy from time to time (especially when PSV wins the Championship. Oh my LOL) but he's really shy and modest in front of the camera. He's so adorible and most definitly my favorite player on this list. Oh yeah, he plays a mean game of ball ;)

    As for the hotest, hmm. Probs Sneijder (not there, ts ts) because of his street punk attitude. But more like a See, Buy, (Try,) Fly (& Goodbye) LOL

    We don't have a lot of hot ballers, do we? Ah well, they make up for it with talent:D

  29. Iris says:

    No Giovanni van Bronckhorst? And Nigel de Jong number 2, don't like him that much. I totally agree with putting Robin van Persie at the top, though :D

  30. Elizabeth says:


    • Alisha says:

      I totally agree! It's gone far too long without him!

    • anna says:

      phew, so good to see I'm not the only one wondering why he wasn't mentioned here, was starting to doubt my taste in men…. lol, but FINALLY he's on the radar @ kickette! I read an interview this morning where he was quoted saying we was single, so the playmate is just for … I guess

      • Alisha says:

        I've read a similar interview but he's Muslim isn't he? I can't see him being linked with a playmate when he's Muslim, he's too nice a boy for that. And do NOT doubt yout taste in men, if you like him you have great taste :D

  31. AKA says:

    Hmmm…. no Mark van Bommel? Hear me out: check his abs. And listen to his voice (in Dutch). It is aural sex.

  32. NandosGirl says:

    I see the fireworks! Oh my damn…those abs…


  33. Linda (Gooner till I says:

    Robin all the way.

  34. This list is all wrong, number 5 SHOULD ABSOLUTELY BE NUMBER ONE!!!!!!!!!! I mean, my GOODNESS he is just delicious, those abs, that tan. Now I chose him as my "would-like-to-do" player…wasn't aware of his existence prior 2 this. So THANKS kickette!

  35. Syrian! says:

    Oh yeah baby, Affelay for life haha hes soo freakin cutee muwahaha hot hot hot

  36. juventina says:

    VDV is where its at! He is so delish! <3

  37. Dutch-Somali89 says:

    Its has to be ROBIN VAN PERSIE and his sexy self ;)

  38. Michelle says:

    Big yay for Mr Van der Wiel's abs…hopefully there'll be some gratuitous shots of them during the W.C! Yum :)
