If you remember the 2006 installment of the World Cup, the Wives and Girlfriends (WAGs) of the England team rose to prominence with their socializing and shopping, they created more buzz than their husbands and boyfriends did on the pitch. Led by the original WAG herself, Victoria Beckham, the WAGs partied up a storm in Germany. Who can forget that one night in the German city of Baden Baden when they reportedly spent almost £ 60 000 in less than an hour, mostly on French pink champagne and other delicacies. When England crashed out of the tournament, the British Media were quick to blame the WAGs for the distraction.

Here I take a look at some of the most fabulous and successful WAGs that will be going to Brazil… to show their support of course!
