Saw Spot.ph’s Top 10 hottest male athletes last night and it’s not surprise to me that 4 out of 10 are football players (pictured below) and there was only 1 basketball player. Though I thought there should have been more than one surfer! (With all that paddling, surfing creates that über hot V-shaped ripped upper body!) Shout out to Luke who I knew during my La Union surfing days!
I read this interesting article online (too bad I can’t find the link anymore!) that analyzed why football had the hottest players than other sports. (I totally agree! So many of them look like freaking models!) Basically with football you have regular guys – they don’t need to be too tall like in basketball or too muscular/bulky like in american football or wrestling, etc. They are just sorta your average guys, but hella ripped and fit from all the running! =P Do you agree?
7. JASON DE JONG
This half-Dutch, half-Pinoy cutie is the midfielder of the hottest football team of the moment, the Azkals. The 20 year-old is also eligible to play for the Netherlands, but lucky for us, he chose to play for Team Philippines instead. Catch more of Jason’s tanned skin and bright smile on the field as the Azkals are back in training for a new round of tournaments.
4. NEIL ETHERIDGE
At only 20, Half-Brit Neil stands at a whopping 6’3.” His height is a commanding presence on the field as goalkeeper for the Azkals, but it’s the combination of his perfectly tanned skin and dark hair that keeps us cheering every time he saves a goal. His fan base practically covers every Asian country the Azkals played in during the Suzuki Cup—a testament to Neil’s universal appeal.
3. JAMES YOUNGHUSBAND
This 24-year-old is the older half of the famous Younghusband brothers. Born to a British dad and a Pinay mom, this Younghusband has been wowing football fans and melting girls’ hearts everywhere as a valuable player on the Azkals lineup. It’s hard to tell if those girls are cheering for the goal he just scored, or for those soft doe eyes and broad shoulders.
1. PHIL YOUNGHUSBAND
Phil thrilled many an Azkals fan when he scored the second goal against Vietnam in the recent Suzuki Cup, but the shrieks from the stands could easily have come from girls who get kilig at the sight of his boyish, half-British good looks. Formerly a top scorer of the Chelsea Football Club in London before becoming one of the Azkals’ star players, this Cosmo hunk was a 2009 Bachelor Bash crowd favorite. Tall, dark-haired, undeniably handsome, and with the athletic prowess to match, Phil’s one prized catch—and that’s putting it mildly.
So what do you think? Do you agree?
Personally, I still think that everyone on my Football Hotties Philippine Edition (there were 11!) should have been included on this list! =P Where’s Anton Delo Rosario, Aly Borromeo, Rob Gier, Ray Jonsson, etc.?
I guess they should have made it a Top 20 list since there are just too many football hotties! LOL. I was telling my friend that Cosmo Magazine Philippines should do a Cosmo bachelor bash – athletes edition instead this year! That would be so much fun!!!
Stay tuned for the other Azkals-related post I’m working on later today! Good luck to the Azkals / Philippine men’s football team! They are competing against Mongolia today 7pm Philippine time. There is a pre-game coverage starting at 6:30pm. Will post online link of where to watch it live streaming later.
