With the World Cup in full swing and England through to the next round, our thoughts are on not only the men participating in the event, but their wives and girlfriends, too – from Tina Moore to Rebekah Vardy, we’ve rounded up the most iconic WAGs through the years:
Wife of World Cup winner and England captain Bobby, Tina was by his side as he battled illness before going on to lift the trophy in 1966. Married for 22 years, Tina was also by Bobby’s side for the 1970 world cup and most recently has advised on the TV show about her and her late husband’s life, starring Michelle Keegan.
Wife of another member of the World Cup winning team of 1966, and Munich disaster survivor, Bobby, Norma experienced three different world cup tournaments with her husband. Married since 1961, the couple are celebrating 57 years of marriage this year.
Spice Girl and wife of David, Victoria was part of the infamous WAGs of 2006, who, as a collective, reportedly spent £57,000 in one afternoon of shopping and thousands more pounds on champagne. She’s now a world-renowned fashion designer and we’d love to see her design a take on the England strip for the 2022 tournament.
Another member of the much-talked-about 2006 WAG squad, the wife of Wayne has won over the country with her charm, fashion collections and brood of super cute baby boys.
Cheryl, who married footballer Ashley just a week after the end of the World Cup, was another of the infamous WAGs from Germany 2006. Now famed for her role on X Factor and her music career, Cheryl has taken a step back from the limelight to spend time with baby boy Bear.
Another of the class of 2006 and wife of Steven, Alex is reported to have racked up a hotel bill of £25,000 after England got knocked out of the tournament in Germany, which included 60 bottles of pink champagne. A girl after our own hearts!
Wife of Leicester and England striker Jamie, this is both his and Rebekah’s first World Cup. Shooting to fame after an appearance on I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, Rebekah has endeared herself to the country, especially when speaking out on her honest experiences with childbirth and motherhood.
We’ll be standing right alongside these ladies in supporting our teams in the knockout stages. Come on England (and Spain for me, too, please)!
