Soccer is undoubtedly one of the highest-paying sports in the world, not to mention the most popular and most watched sport on the planet. The two highest paid soccer players in the world, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are numbers three and four respectively in the Forbes' list of the world's highest-paid athletes and are likely to be numbers one and two next year.
The above said, it's easy to understand that soccer players are in a position to afford anything they want, including the hottest women in the world.
It is important to point out that the women on this list are not with their soccer husbands or boyfriends because of the crazy amounts of cash that they make. However, the money and the fame that these men have are sure to keep their women comfortable and willing to stay in the relationship for a very long time.
Choosing just fifteen women out of the thousands of hot soccer wives and girlfriends is a headache because these football players sure know how to pick their women. So many deserving women have been left out of this list, but the ones on this list also have every right to be here.
These women are all unique in their own special ways, and we can all understand why these have stolen the hearts of the most talented sportsmen we have in the world today.
