As the big tournament approaches, Umbro has designed shirts to celebrate each of the seven nations who have become world champions.
The teams featured are Italy, Uruguay, France, Argentina, Germany and five-time winners Brazil.
And with a stroke of genius they have asked the likes of Peter Crouch’s fiancee Abbey Clancy and an array of other sexy girls relative to football to model the gear ahead of the launch.
While Peter Crouch still has work to do to be picked for the England squad, his model-turned-TV presenter WAG is as much demand as ever (see the photo right.)
Alongside Abbey Clancy appear Arsenal star Gael Clichy’s wife Charlene Suric modeling the French shirt while Luli Fernandez, Pablo Mouche’s girlfriend, models the Argentinean shirt.
Representing Italy is Alice Bregoli, the girlfriend of Alberto Gilardino, while Uruguay is modelled by Diego Forlan’s wife Zaira Nara.
Marcell Jansen’s wife Julia Godicke in the Germany colours, and Susana Werner – Julio Cesar’s other half – in the famous yellow of Brazil (see the photos below.)
And as you can see they’re all absolute dazzlers – we’re talking about the shirts, of course.
The launch of the kits mirrors a promotion Umbro led way back in the 60s and the kit manufacturer are hoping the casual shirts sell famously alongside the England team shits.
Each kit features a redesigned national badge, put together by ‘mixture of graffiti artists, cartoonists, tattoo designers, record label owners’. And prices start from £40, for a shirt from the country of your choice.
