Preparation for World Cup SA with Ronaldo in underwear!

To prepare us for the imminent World Cup tournament, Vanity Fair calls famous footballers to grace the June pages. On the cover are Cristiano Ronaldo who is playing for Real Madrid/Portugal and Didier Drogba who is playing for Chelsea/Ivory Coast. Both flaunt their colors, and little else, for famed photographer Annie Leibovitz. There is a behind the scenes video online with Drogba pumping iron, KaKa bicycle-kicking a ball straight into the lens and Landon Donovan also stripping down to his undies.

The accompanying article is by A. A. Gill who wrote, “Football took to the world pitch at about the same time as the modern independent nation-state. After a flag, a national anthem, and a press release decrying Yankee imperialism, the next thing newly minted nations do is build a stadium and come up with a national grudge match.”

The 2010 World Cup kicks off June 11.

Cristiano clearly has a little “more” to offer the ladies, but then again he is an ex-Man Utd star.
