The 2016 edition of the Copa America is a tournament of firsts. The first time ever it is experiencing a centenary year, first time it is being played outside of South America, the first time it is being played in the USA and the first time the WAGs (wives and girlfriends) of the competition will get to experience the sights and sounds of what America has to offer.
While the NFL is on its summer break – their stadiums will be getting spicy hot. Passion for the game is unparalleled across Brazil, Paraguay, Argentina, Colombia and the entire continent. Not only is bragging rights for the region on offer, but the chance to represent the Americas at the 2017 Confederations Cup in Russia, 12 months prior to the World Cup.
Throw in the likes of Mexico, Costa Rica and the red, white and blue, all of a sudden team USA can get a tangible feeling for what it is to host such a grand occasion for the first time since 1994 when they hosted the World Cup. Who knows if or when the Copa will be back on United States soil? So soak it up.
Criticize soccer players all you want for being pampered, overpaid prima donnas who fall on the ground at the smallest hint of contact. The fact of the matter remains that they play the biggest sport in the world on huge salaries in front of fanatical packed crowds – and that’s just covering their profession.
These WAGs should feel right at home on the California beaches, even putting some of the regular models, actresses and R&B singers to shame with their unique style and laissez-faire attitude to fame and fortune. TMZ and the Hollywood complex don’t jade the Copa ladies – they live their life in the manner their partners play their football, defined by swagger and expression of the heart.
Without any further ado, these are the 19 hottest WAGs turning up to the 2016 Copa America right here in the US of A.
18 Anna Mariana Casemiro (Casemiro)
17 Sofia Balbi (Luis Suarez)
16 Abra House (Graham Zusi)
15 Chiara Picone (Javier Pastore)
14 Jaydy Michel (Rafa Marquez)
13 Carla Pardo (Claudio Bravo)
12 Maria Teresa Matus (Arturo Vidal)
11 Bethany Dempsey (Clint Dempsey)
10 Yanina Screpante (Ezequiel Lavezzi)
9 Antonella Roccuzzo (Lionel Messi)
8 Lucia Villalon (Javier Hernandez)
7 Carol Cabrino (Marquinhos)
6 Joana Sanz (Dani Alves)
5 Karin Jimenez (Santiago Arias)
4 Eugenia Lusardo (Marcos Rojo)
3 Jessica Sterling (David Ospina)
2 Alondra Garcia Miro (Paolo Guerrero)
1 Irene Martinez (Hector Moreno)
At 28 years old, the big move might be off the cards for the PSV Eindhoven defender. In Mexico’s eyes, he is the backbone of the side and regardless of how far they go in Copa 2016, he’ll have Irene Martinez to go home to. The cute, diligent, private partner of Hector keeps a lock on her social media comings and goings, illustrating that even the hottest can be modest. Win, lose or draw, Irene Martinez will be screaming and dancing in her green kit.
