Even if you’re not a soccer fan, you’ve probably seen some news about Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar, and maybe even David De Gea in recent weeks, as they’ve been relatively hot topics thanks to the ongoing World Cup in Russia.
What you might not have seen is any coverage of their significant others—Georgina Rodriguez, Bruna Marquezine, and Edurne Garcia—making the rounds.
That injustice is going to change, posthaste.
As far as wives and girlfriends (WAGs) go, the ladies who wind up with World Cup-level soccer players are generally worthy of as much attention—if not more—than their footie-playing partners.
That’s why we found five of the best soccer WAGs who are with a player whose team still has chance to win it all in Russia. Today is an off day in play, but we’d suggest following these ladies on Instagram before World Cup action resumes tomorrow.
