With the World Cup 2010 upon us, we can’t get those sexy soccer boys off of our minds.

USA stunner Oguchi Onyewu already won us over as a previous Eye Candy of the Week. We don’t see anything wrong with taking a second look.

Thirty-nine-year-old British goalkeeper has been kicking the ball around for quite some time now. But how could we get tired of that face. James once posed nude holding just a soccer ball in front of his man parts. Sigh.

This is Argentinian goalkeeper Sergio Romero’s second World Cup. The young footballer repped his country in the FIFA U-20 World Cup for Youth back in 2007. All grown up now, we’d totally like to score on sexy 6’3" goalie.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with 6’3" British striker Carlton Cole as far as we can see. Gorgeous lips, masculine legs, beautiful chocolate complexion. We think we’re in love.

This French attacking midfielder’s dreamy pale green eyes and a sexy lean stance is an obvious fan favorite. It doesn’t hurt that Yoann Gourcuff was born into the sport. His father is former French footballer and current team manager Christian Gourcuff.

The thighs on 28-year-old Cameroonian striker Achille Webo are something to write home about. And what girl can resist a man with a bald head, perfect lean abs and persistence to score?

Mexican goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa has done his part to increase the world’s number of female soccer enthusiasts. Voted the world’s 11 best goalie, it’s nice to know he’s more than just a cute face. But, what a cute face!

Cameroonian defensive midfielder Alexandre Song chose soccer to take after his famous cousin Rigobert Song, who took Alex under his wing when his father died at three. We love the way he moves.

Portuguese forward Christiano Ronaldo is six feet and one inch of perfection. We’re pretty sure he brings all the girls to the field in Madrid, Spain, where he normally plays ball.

Check out the smile on 26-year-old Brazilian Striker Robinho. We’ve got a school girl crush on this cute footballer.

If you like your men long and lean, this Aussie midfielder is your guy. Just look at those legs.

South African midfielder Kigasho Dikgacoi made his first two goals in 2008 during a World Cup 2010 qualifier game. We can think of a few more ways for him to increase his score card.
