|#5 is Lukas Podolski|
The first round of the UEFA 2012 (Union of European Football Associations) is over. Two weeks into the tournament, there has been lots of good news and some inevitable bad news. The good news is Poland and the Ukraine have exceeded expectations as co-host nations. New hotel and entertainment complexes have welcomed over a million fans. Trains are ample, clean and on time. The facilities...many built specifically for the event...have dazzled. Even the weather has cooperated. The bad news is ignorant racists morons have disrupted some matches. Let's face it: Fans who jump up and down and howl like monkeys need to look in the mirror and ask themselves: Хто це мавпа? (Who is the monkey?)
To be honest, we here at the DUNER BLOG don't really enjoy soccer much. HOWEVER...we do enjoy the soccer players. It's true: Nowadays, European footie heroes have reached levels of celebrity previously only attained by MICHAEL JORDAN and TIGER WOODS. Similarly aided by tabloids, twitter and testosterone, these go-getters are always in the headlines across the continent. Also...just like their American counterparts...their fame is matched only by their enormous salaries and lucrative endorsement deals. To honor these men, here is our official list of the TOP FIVE SEXIEST PLAYERS LEFT IN THE UEFA 2012 TOURNAMENT.
|#4. Cesc Fabregas|
#4. CESC FABREGAS. Spain. It seems wherever this midfielder goes, drama follows. As a youth, he first shot to fame on Spain's U-17 team. Then, the Barcelona native broke hometown hearts when he signed with the English power ARSENAL at the tender age of sixteen. Injuries to other midfielders quickly catapulted him into the starting lineup, where he shined. In eight seasons, he scored 53 goals...and became team captain. When his contract was up, one of the highest bidding wars in sports history ensued, with FC Barcelona winning with a bid of 34 million Euros.
|#3. Ashley Cole.|
|#2. Ilker Casillas|
|#1. Cristiano Ronaldo|
