Best World Cup Arrivals
By Josh Woodfin, 13 June 2014
Yesterday, as you may have heard, a popular sporting competition got underway in the muggy heat of Brazil. The world's best footballers have left their respective countries behind for a four-week battle to earn their place in the history books. It's a big deal, so it makes sense that the players should look good when they land and when they're training – first impressions count, after all. Check out some stylish arrivals and see how they're settling in.
Never one to be described as a shrinking violet, Balotelli's style is big on and off the pitch. Check out these gold-frame aviators that make the Italy forward look cool – and which hide any tell-tale emotions. Sneaky.
The England and Arsenal midfielder took a run on the beach and bossed a seriously good Nike hoodie while he did it. Nice tactic – no one likes running on the sand, it's absolutely knackering, so this should give his opponents some food for thought.
Looking something like a lion entering the Colosseum, the Juventus and Italy midfielder stalked off the plane with his game face well and truly in place. What's in his bags? Who knows, but there's probably some seriously decent beard-grooming product, because that bad boy is faultless.
Team USA might not be favourites for the top prize, but you can't fault their can-do attitude. Look at them here, pretty much game-ready and looking good while they do it. But what have they all been listening to? Eminem? The Rocky theme? Or maybe some motivational speeches.
