WAGs At The World Cup: Germany

We know it’s early but the German WAGs are already putting up a ridiculous fight for the title of “OTT Pack of Partners at the World Cup”.
GMen-sac, the security team the DFB (Ed Note: German equivalent of the FA) hired to keep watch of the players’ mates, were seen accompanying Mesut Özil’s girlfriend Anna Maria and Jerome Boateng’s partner Sherin last weekend. Apparently, Sarah Brandner was also there (but not pictured) and more WAGs are expected to fly in any day now to support their men when they face England on Sunday.
Not to play devil’s advocates, but…we know of three other occasions when a nation’s governing body provided support to the wives and girlfriends as they made there way to, or around, the World Cup. None of them ended well. The less sensational but most recent of the three wives’ tales involves Slovenia, whose WAGs were flown out ahead of the team so they could greet the players upon their Port Elizabeth arrival.
