As the big tournament approaches, Umbro has designed shirts to celebrate each of the seven nations who have become world champions.
The teams featured are Italy, Uruguay, France, Argentina, Germany and five-time winners Brazil.
And with a stroke of genius they have asked the likes of Peter Crouch’s fiancee Abbey Clancy and an array of other sexy girls relative to football to model the gear ahead of the launch.
While Peter Crouch still has work to do to be picked for the England squad, his model-turned-TV presenter WAG is as much demand as ever (see the photo right.)
Alongside Abbey Clancy appear Arsenal star Gael Clichy’s wife Charlene Suric modeling the French shirt while Luli Fernandez, Pablo Mouche’s girlfriend, models the Argentinean shirt.
Representing Italy is Alice Bregoli, the girlfriend of Alberto Gilardino, while Uruguay is modelled by Diego Forlan’s wife Zaira Nara.
Marcell Jansen’s wife Julia Godicke in the Germany colours, and Susana Werner – Julio Cesar’s other half – in the famous yellow of Brazil (see the photos below.)
And as you can see they’re all absolute dazzlers – we’re talking about the shirts, of course.
The launch of the kits mirrors a promotion Umbro led way back in the 60s and the kit manufacturer are hoping the casual shirts sell famously alongside the England team shits.
Each kit features a redesigned national badge, put together by ‘mixture of graffiti artists, cartoonists, tattoo designers, record label owners’. And prices start from £40, for a shirt from the country of your choice.
However, there’s no representation from Spain, who are the choice of many football pundits as eventual winners. [via DailyMail (UK) and Metro (UK)]
Tiger Who? Tiger Woods was once introduced to pop doyenne Christina Aguilera. “Oh, Christina, I love your music,” Tiger told her. “I have all your CDs.” Christina’s reply? “Sorry, I don’t know much about you. I don’t follow tennis.”
When golfer Camilo Villegas with his flashing rippling biceps burst on the scene in 2006, he attracted swarms of
screaming female fans and cat-calls were no infrequent event.
Another aspect of Camilo that warrants frequent discussion is the fact that if he can't see
the line of a putt properly, he won't hesitate to drop into a half-squat, half-pushup position to drop his eyes to
nearly green level. On a side note, if you've never tried getting
that low to read a putt, try it. It actually works.
Swede Henrik Stenson had no problem stripping down to take a successful recovery shot during the opening round of the WGC-CA Championship.
When his ball landed in the mud on the twelfth hole, Henrik had two options:take an automatic two shot deficit or play the ball as it lied. Never one to take the
easy way out, Henrik waded into the mud, but not before removing every bit of clothing, except his tighty whities.
"If you are saving a shot, that has to be worth taking your shirt and trousers off." said Stenson.
Natalie Gulbis is a professional golfer on the LPGA tour and is currently appearing on NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice working
alongside such luminaries as Dennis Rodman.
Literally the poster girl for sexy golfers, Gulbis has a best-selling calendar and made FHM Magazine's
list of the 100 Sexiest Women of 2007. But she is in danger of becoming golf's Anna Kournikova—a beautiful,
bankable woman who never wins. She has earned $2.6 million in five years as a pro, but no trophies.
