Even if you don't like football (or soccer, if you speak United Statesese), there's a reason you should be watching the World Cup: Because all of the footballers are really, really hot. Which player is the hottest, though? That's the competition we should be focusing on.

Using your feedback, we picked one player from each country in the Cup who we deemed the hottest player on that team. Then we set up a bracket alphabetically, pairing A against Z, and so forth. And now it's time to vote.
