The World Cup is now firmly behind us but the fond memories of great plays from many sides – still remain. I personally was a big fan of the performances by the Colombian and Costa Rican national teams. Now that the boys are out of the way – let’s take a look at the ladies with this countdown of the top five wags from the World Cup. Some World Cup mega stars are lucky enough to call these women their own so enjoy this clip from YouTube – guys. It kicks off at number five with Melissa Satta (Kevin Price Boateng’s main squeeze) and end’s off with Ann-Kathrin Brommel (the lady-love of World Cup hero – Mario Gotze).

Here is a comprehensive and sometimes sideways look back at 25 of the most memorable, and sometimes shocking, moments of the tournament and in this first part we look back at the opening night, some Russian goalkeeping and one of the goals of the tournament – if the final whistle hadn’t already blown.
