Thunder (In Our) Down Under: The 5 Hottest Australian World Cup Players
Australia can claim many things: great beaches, excellent indie makeup brands, and even one of our dearest Kickette staffers, who schlepped off to enjoy temperatures lovely and full of high UV indexes. Of course, this is also a nation that can claim a rather high abundance of man candy which we are always appreciative of. But enough of the chit and the chat, let’s get to the talent:
Harry Kewell (above)
This married, family man (who is still all over his wifey, Sheree) gets the top honours because of his recent Politix product shill. He’s been making beautiful moments with the clothing company for years, but the decision to strip for the shill in their recent underwear campaign sealed the deal for us. FYI, Sheree once told an audience of millions, (quite openly and proudly, we might add), about Harry’s incredible, “peachy bum”.
Is the soul patch a deal breaker? Debatable. But there’s just something about the hot-headed shelf-bottomed team captain that gets us going in the morning. As one helpful reader pointed out, we should base these lists on whether we would “strip them immediately in the street or just stop for a chat.” And on that note, Lucas, please remove your pantaloons.
We had the pleasure of discovering young Nikita back in 2008. At that point, our discussions centred largely around whether he needed more or less hair to be hot. Now? Are we bovvered? We’re focusing instead now on being able to correctly pronounce this delectable 22-year-old’s name so we can try to wangle our way into the team hotel. Bonus: he can model whilst looking awkward.
