Revealed: The biggest playboys in this year’s FIFA World Cup

Almost all of the football players scheduled to compete in this year’s World Cup in Qatar look like they’ve made it.

For starters, they’re all famous celebrities with money to spend. Plus, many of them have love partners to go home to at the end of the day.

But despite everything, some football players always want more. More fame, more money and above all more women – even if it means cheating.

Although these athletes spend as much time playing the field as playing football, many have earned a seat on the plane to Qatar.

And, with the World Cup just around the corner, we thought it best to reveal which of these competitors are football’s greatest playboys.

Who are the greatest football playboys?

At the top of our list is Phil FodenEngland’s electrifying midfielder.

Unfortunately, for Foden’s wife and childhood sweetheart, Rebecca Cooke, it won’t come as a surprise.

Not only was Foden caught cheating repeatedly by Cooke, his antics even made national headlines on multiple occasions.

This summer, newspapers reported that Foden and Cooke had been escorted from a resort in Corfu after discovering he was arranging meetings with other women. Ouch!

Another English idol, Jack Greishcomes second with two previous cheating scandals rocking his long-term relationship with Sasha Attwood.

Unlike Foden, Grealish seems to have calmed down a bit in the past year, especially since Attwood gave him an ultimatum regarding an affair he allegedly had with actress Emily Atack.

The other players on our list are all sitting with a reported case of cheating.

This includes game legends like Neymar Jr.Ballon d’Or winner Karim Benzemaand Liverpool’s star centre-back Virgil van Dijk.

Which countries have the most playboys?

Countries with the most football playboys

At least England are sure to be top of a table at this World Cup, with their squad containing by far the biggest playboys.

The combination of Foden, Grealish, Stones and Stirling gave England a grand total of seven separate cheating scandals.

This is more than double the number of goals the quartet managed to score at Euro 2020.

Mexico came in second place with four players cheating on their partners.

This should come as no surprise given that before the last World Cup eight members of the Mexican squad were caught in a sex scandal involving 30 women!

Tied for third place France, Portugal,
Brazil, and Belgium, both of which have playboy football stars.

Down below we have well-mannered teams like Croatia and Argentina who surely hope that focusing less on extramarital affairs will translate into better performance on the court.

Focus on the game instead, England

So we have it. As a team, England have by far the greatest playboys with Foden and Grealish leading the way.

It will be interesting to see how this added stress affects the team’s performance at the World Cup.

Fans in other countries are hoping the guilt has worn down England’s playboys.

On the other hand, England fans will pray that running around their partners has left players like Foden in tip-top shape.
