A WAG's life at the World Cup
YOLANTHE SNEIJDER-CABAU: The half Spanish (she was born in Ibiza - party times), half Dutch actress and wife of Dutch midfielder Wesley Snejder hung out with her father-in-law, at the beach and poolside, and then donned an outfit made up entirely of orange to go and watch her husband play. Side note: Yolanthe is the founder of Stop Kindermisbruik, a foundation which works to free children forced into prostitution around the world. What a superstar.
SARAH JONES: The wife of German-born Team USA player Jermaine Jones (and former Miss Germany) hit her hotel pool (what a view) before getting all red-white-and-blue on it and heading to the stadium to watch USA take on Portugal. Her snazzy blue eye makeup was obviously lucky, with the Americans surprising everyone by tying with Portugal 2-2.
COLEEN ROONEY: English super-WAG Coleen took in the iconic sites of Rio (not before complaining about the intrusiveness of Brazilian airport security on Twitter, however. Just doin' their jobs love, just doin' their jobs ...).
SARA CARBONERO: The partner of Spanish footballer Iker Casillas has been too busy working in her day job as a sports broadcaster in Brazil - and presumably looking after the couple's one-year-old - to take any WAG-tastic poolside shots.
FANNY NEGUSHA: The stunning girlfriend of wild, egotistical but crazy-talented Italian player Mario Balotelli has shared dozens of snaps from Brazil so far: beaches feature heavily, as do pools (and her legs poolside) and snaps of her in an Italy kit (cutely cut and tailored, of course).
MELISSA SATTA: The American-Italian love of Ghana player Kevin-Prince Boateng showed her support by taking kooky selfies with fellow Team Ghana WAG Menaye Donkor and donning a bandeau bikini with her husband's name and team kit emblazoned upon it. This WAG certainly knows how to get a message across (she's also making us feel okay about our terrible roots with her super-chic ombre).
JAYDY MICHEL: The gorgeous wife of Rafael Marquez - the Mexican captain (he also happens to be the first ever player to captain his national team for four consecutive World Cups) - is a Mexican model and actress. She managed to find time to have a Brazilian dinner with her husband of three years pre-matches, but has since snapped many photos of herself alone at the games sans excessively-overdone hair and makeup. This WAG takes spectating seriously.
AMRA SILAJDZIC: The girlfriend of outspoken Bosnia-Herzegovina star Edin Dzeko hit the beach during her short time in Brazil (her lad's team was sent home pretty early) and always stayed clad in her national colours.
