The 2014 FIFA World Cup is just around the corner and as line ups are released, the anticipation keeps rising. Things are getting hotter as teams play friendly matches and go on training sessions all over the world. The past few days have seen teams posting updates about their travels to Brazil. Football however, is not really all about testosterone and competitive matches. There's a lot of glamour and where there's hot men, the hot women are not far behind. Enter the football WAGs of Wives and Girlfriends to those who don't have a clue.

With the biggest players all converging in Brazil this month, their women will certainly be in tow. Here's a look at a list of the most notable WAGs to keep an eye out for in the games:
The "Hips Don't Lie" singer struck gold with her worldwide hit "Waka, Waka" in the 2010 World Cup. She didn't just come home with a hit though, she also took home soccer star Gerard Pique from winning team Spain. Shakira and the FC Barcelona player have since welcomed a baby boy named Milan who they have been dressing in cute football baby jerseys from the moment the first pictures came out.
That Vogue cover featuring model Irina Shayk and beau Cristiano Ronaldo showed the world how a "couples" cover should be done, coming of the heels of a KimYe Vogue cover in the States. Irina also appeared in a Nike commercial released for the World Cup where she's seen in the stands while Ronaldo kicks around some balls with his fellow superstars.
A well known ITV broadcaster from Northern Ireland, Bleakley has been engaged to English star Frank Lampard since 2011. She has appeared in various lifestyle and entertainment programs and is a celebrity in her own right.
Ghana's Kevin Prince Boateng is a proud father to his first child with Satta, an Italian-American TV personality.
The home team won't be far behind when it comes to featuring the best WAGs on the sidelines. FC Barcelona striker Neymar Jr. Recently started a relationship with Brazilian model and Actress Gabriella Lenzi.
Holland's Wesley Sneijder married the Dutch/Spanish actress in 2010. Cabau has since used her time championing various causes related to women's rights against prostitution and human trafficking through the Free A Girl foundation. She is also a designer, model and TV host.
