Oh, Say Can You See: The 5 Hottest USA World Cup Footballers

The good ole US of A: they’ve brought us hot dogs, apple pie and some game that looks like cricket, (but totally isn’t).
And that’s not all! America also has the USMNT – a group who sailed through World Cup qualifying and impressed everyone in their runners-up showing in last summer’s Confederations Cup.
Let’s take a look at the glorious melting pot that is the five hottest fellas wearing the stars and stripes in South Africa this month:
Captain America himself, and a long-time Kickette obsession, Bocamuffin simply must grace the top of this list. He’s been a favourite of ours since his days at Fulham and the delish Rennes defender has been the subject of our “Mmm” posts more times than we care to count.
Other plus points: Carlos appreciates fashion. (Or at least appreciates it enough to turn up and get a free suit out of a deal.) His status as the perfect man is a done deal – just as soon as we get word he has the ability to unwrap and feed us a Magnum in less then 10 seconds.
Brazilian-born Benny had us from the get go. See how well the AGF Aarhus midfielder has coordinated his jersey to his “yeah, you would” gorgeous blue eyes? He’s thinking of us, and our fash-needs Kickettes. We also know that Benny is not afraid to be silly. Nor does he appear to be afraid of webcams.
For those grabbies that need more info, here you go: Gooch had a bit of a rough 09/10 season, appearing in only two matches with AC Milan before being side-lined with a nasty knee injury. Thankfully, he and his pectoral powers are on the South Africa A-List, and if the don’t F with me beard is anything to go by, he’s going to have a good tournament. If all else fails, it’s comforting to know he has a future as a nude model.
The Everton keeper is a bit of an under-the-radar hottie, no? He fulfills all of the Kickette cute-list requirements: gorgeous smile, chocolatey bedroom eyes, a charitable side, and the ability to produce near-edible children.
Plus, we’ve got a thing about goalkeepers. And their gloves.
We couldn’t leave this list without a baby-faced hottie – that would be downright illegal. So, we give you Scottish-born Stu as our “innocent until we make him guilty” selection.
The Bolton midfielder also fulfills the the role of “dorky hottie”, as evidenced by this random photo of him shirtless on a beach with… Tropical birds. We have no idea either, but we don’t care. Look at his abs.
