Bethany Dempsey - Clint Dempsy (3 World Cup Appearances for USA)

On the back of Fulham's fantastic season, Clint Dempsey heads to South Africa in even greater spirits in the knowledge he's been selected alongside his beautiful wife Bethany to represent USA at the Stag & Wag World Cup. Versatile Clint has long-since been established as a Craven Cottage favourite but his fairer half is a relative newcomer on the scene. Indeed, had she not posed in a recent Sports Illustrated with just body paint preserving her modesty we would be none the wiser to her existence either.

Abbey Clancy - Peter Crouch (4 World Cup Appearances for England)

Abbey became a full fledged Wag at the 2006 World Cup where the spotlight shone brightly on the England team both on and off the pitch. A brief separation for the pair followed but we can confirm the two are firmly back together. They announced their engagement on July 15th 2009 after returning from a romantic holiday in Sardinia.

Michela Quattrociocche - Alberto Aquilani (2 World Cup qualification Appearances for Italy)

Liverpool's latest Italian import is seeing the 20-year-old Italian actress Michela [deep breath] Quattro-cioc-che? The midfielder may not have made a World Cup finals appearance as yet, but - injury permitting - is sure to feature in South Africa.

Sylvie van der Vaart - Rafael van der Vaart (3 World Cup Appearances for Holland)

Dutch model, actress and presenter is the wife of Real Madrid's Rafael van der Vaart. The couple are essentially Holland's answer to Posh and Becks, with a slightly more attractive Posh in my opinion. The multi-talented wife and mother of one is currently battling breast cancer for which we hope she fully recovers.

Elisabetta Canalis - Christian Vieri (9 World Cup Appearances for Italy)

Italian TV host Elisabetta Canalis featured in the film Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo but before you rush out and buy that on Blu-ray, you should also know that she is currently single and only had a brief fling with Italy's 2002 World Cup star Christian Vieri.

Caroline Luel-Brockdorff - Nicklas Bendtner (0 World Cup appearances for Denmark

It's fair to say Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner, 21, is not averse to making the headlines, and now he's gone and bagged himself a cougar. The Wag phenomenon has long-since been accused of encouraging gold-diggers to ensnare footballers rich in the pocket but poor in the grey matter department, but we think the sturdy Dane is pretty safe with Luel-Brockdorff: she's absolutely minted. Oh, and a member of the Danish Royal family.

Alena Seredova - Gianluigi Buffon (11 World Cup Appearances for Italy)

Alena is a Czech-born model who has represented her country at Miss World competitions and her husband Gianluigi Buffon is considered one of the best goalkeepers in the world. The Italian shot stopper not only has a gorgeous wife but is also approaching a century of caps for his country.

Raica Oliveira - Ronaldo (19 World Cup Appearances for Brazil)

It maybe hard to believe now but not so long ago the name Ronaldo was associated with a fast, strong and skilful Brazilian striker who found the back of the net every time he took to the field. As we know from the most recent incarnation of the name, with that kind of combination comes the ladies and the now rather porky Ronaldo was once dating Raica Oliveira, a Brazilian model and TV presenter.

Caroline Celico - Kaka (6 World Cup Appearances for Brazil)

The 27-year-old Kaka married his 18-year-old childhood sweetheart Caroline Celico in 2005, you do the maths! The two met in 2001 while Celico was a student and Kaka was in his early playing day at Sao Paulo. Cute couple of the decade award goes to...

Helen Svedin - Luis Figo (10 World Cup Appearances for Portugal)

The Swedish super model wife of Portuguese legend Luis Figo is the face of H&M clothes store. The couple have three daughters Daniela, Martina and Stella with another child on the way, they currently reside in Milan where Figo plays football for Inter.
