His cocky swagger gets my goat, but there’s no denying that this skinny tyke is hot stuff, thanks to his pin-up looks, hair-do experimentations,

questionable

taste in clothes + music, choreographed goal celebrations, Neymarzetes (who can give Beliebers a run for their money), media savvy, and of course, supreme ball skillzzzz.

Speaking of man candy, it doesn’t come more sugar-coated than Oscar. Just look at those puppy dog eyes — beyond delectable, no?

NETO and MATS HUMMELS

But if you like your men a little hipster-ish, then Portugal’s Luís Neto and Germany’s Mats Hummels are your go-to ‘ballers.

With those piercing eyes, the tall build and that facial fuzz, Neto is as swoonsome as it gets. #ilovebeardies

And Mats. That mop of hair, that chiselled profile, those smouldering gazes he gives to the camera, need I say more?

Also helps that both are decent defenders! Neto is Portugal’s no. 14, while Mats is Germany’s no. 5.

A square-jawed beaut with dimples and abs on which you can grate cheese on, what’s not to love, aye? And oh, this Frenchman has a penchant for taking his kit off — all the way, in fact!! — so keep your eyes peeled for France’s no. 9, girlfriends ;-)

That’s it for today — I’ll be back soon-ish with another five hot ‘baller, promise.
