If we were to compare our Hottest Player in the World Cup tournament to the actual World Cup, the "Group of Death" would be whoever has to go against Cristiano Ronaldo in the first few rounds. First eliminated: Brazil's Neymar.
The first round also saw the demise of hotties Nicolas Lodeiro from Uruguay and Milan Badelj from Croatia, not to mention USA's own Kyle Beckerman. We miss your dreads already, Beckerman!
Round 2 sees our first real Sophie's Choice of hotness: France's Olivier Giroud vs. Germany's Mats Hummels. Meanwhile, Ronaldo takes on Russia's Aleksandr Kerzhakov. It wouldn't be a great tournament without an upset, though. The choice is yours. Vote now!
Come back tomorrow to see if your favorite footballer made it to the third round!
