Get to Know Italy's Soccer Hunks
July 10, 2006

More than one billion people watched Team Italy kick their way to World Cup gold on Sunday. From Jay-Z to Diddy and even sexy Angel Adrianna Lima, the world caught soccer fever.

With studs like Fabio Cannavaro, Luca Toni and Vincenzo Iaquinta roaming the field, it's pretty obvious why everyone's talking about those gorgeous boys in blue!

If you remember the tattooed stud hoisting the golden trophy, that's team captain Fabio Cannavaro.

Back home, the 32-year-old defender extraordinaire has already achieved rock star status. And after scoring big in this World Cup, he probably won't have any trouble scoring himself a date either.

Also on the field is Luca Toni, a sexy Italian stallion with piercing blue eyes. It's perfectly clear why this hunk is Europe's rising star.

But Toni isn't just a pretty face; he's rich too, recently landing a $10 million deal to play soccer in Italy.

If you're more into the tall, rugged type, look no further than Vincenzo Iaquinta. His chiseled features, dark brown eyes and beautiful black hair make this 26-year-old athlete as dangerous off the field as he is on it!

No wonder soccer is the world's most popular game!
