World Cup 2014: stylish couples of the England team

Following the 2014 England squad announcement on Monday by team manager Roy Hodgson, the county is preparing to cheer and cry as the 2014 FIFA World Cup gets underway.

The list was a good mix of new names such as Luke Shaw and Raheem Sterling, as well as familiar faces like Frank Lampard and England captain Steven Gerrard, and to celebrate, HELLO! Online have decided to take a look at six stylish couples we hope to spot in South America this summer.


Despite a reported ban on wives and girlfriends joining the footballers in Brazil, Steven's wife Alex Gerrard has revealed she is thinking about joining her husband and the team if they make it to the later stages of the tournament.

"I'll probably speak to Coleen [Rooney] and the other girls and see what they're doing. I just want them to do well", said Alex earlier this year to HELLO! magazine.

Waiting until the later stages is something that Coleen chose to do during the 2010 tournament, which was husband Wayne Rooney’s second World Cup appearance, but in 2014 Coleen has yet to reveal her plans.

Other wives and girlfriends that could be making the trip to Brazil include Christine Bleakley, the television presenter who is engaged to Frank Lampard. The pair met at the Pride of Britain Awards in 2009 and became engaged in 2011.

Glamour model Sam Cooke who has been dating Chris Smalling, is also expected at the tournament, as well as Joe Hart’s beautician girlfriend Kimberly Crew, and Glen Johnson’s wife Laura.
