One of the beautiful people
Although he underperformed on the field during the 2010 World Cup, Italy’s Fabio Cannavaro is receiving applause from the world’s most beautiful people.
According to beautifulpeople.com – a dating website with a strict ban on ugly people – Italy captain Cannavaro is the “most beautiful player” in the 2010 World Cup.
Cannavaro is followed by Fernando Torres and David Villa, both players from Spain. Soccer players from teams participating in this year’s tournament were rated using a system by members of the dating site. The site, founded in Denmark in 2002, claims it's the largest community of attractive people in the world. Only existing members can elect potential members, who in turn have to undergo a 48-hour rating period while their photo and profile are scrutinized. Approximately 200,000 members have cast their vote.
The site has named Algeria and England the worst looking teams in the tourney, and Wayne Rooney the "most unattractive player on the planet." The most beautiful teams: Spain, Italy, Brazil, France, Denmark and the USA.
The site’s survey suggests that only one of the English teams players would have “qualified” for membership is goalkeeper David James – the goalkeeper who let four goals fly by in the game against Germany.
There you go boys … you may have underperformed in this year’s tournament, but at least you still have your looks.
