Ever since the 2006 World Cup days of Victoria Beckham, Cheryl Cole and Coleen Rooney, there’s been an intense obsession with the wives and girlfriends of the players on the field.
A decade on and things are very much the same when it comes to the WAGs of Euro 2016. Coleen is still around, offering loyal support to England skipper Rooney, while Kimberley Crew (Joe Hart’s wife), Rebekah Vardy (Jamie Vardy’s Mrs) and Sam Cooke (Chris Smalling’s other half) have found themselves thrust into the spotlight.
On the field, most punters’ money is on France to take home the Euro 2016 trophy – off it, they’ve got plenty of motivation in the form of a group of wives and girlfriends who’ll make you go “ooh la la”!
Ludivine Kadri Sagna, the wife of Manchester City’s Bacary Sagna, fired out an Instagram shot of France’s WAGs watching their fellas in action. Naturally the internet did one massive collective swoon.
But who’s who? Fortunately, the Twitter account EPLBible posted an annotated version of the shot to help. Witness the wonder of France’s better halves below…
