So who is winning the WAG World Cup? Players' wives and girlfriends battle it out in VERY glamorous Instagram posts as they turn out in force in Russia

  • England WAGs have stiff competition in the glamour stakes at the World Cup
  • A former Miss Iceland contestant has made the trip to cheer on her boyfriend
  • Brazilian player Marquinhos is supported by his reality TV star and singer wife
  • Sweden is supported by a gaggle of social media stars who blog about their lives 

While England are focusing on their next World Cup match, their wives and girlfriends are caught up in their own competition off the pitch.

Rebekah Vardy and co have found themselves up against football's most glamorous WAGs in the tournament's style stakes. 

From Mexico to Iceland, each team is being cheered on by models, singers and social media stars who have jetted into Russia to support their men.

Crowd favourite Iceland is being cheered on by former Miss Iceland contestant Alexandre Ivarsdottir  - one half of the nation's answer to Posh and Becks - while Brazilian reality TV star and singer Carol Cabrino has been snapped waving the flag for her husband Marquinhos. 

And while their husbands are busy training, the women have found time to shop, sight-see and indulge in some rather expensive-looking meals. 

Fortunately for us, they also document every minute of their off-pitch style campaign on Instagram...

The couple, who welcomed their first child together last year, enjoy a lavish life of trips abroad and designer shopping sprees. 

Veronika, who is believed to be in her early 20s, doesn't have quite the same Instagram presence as her fellow WAGs and boasts a relatively modest 6,500 followers. 

However she still regularly shares posts on her account, including recent images over an enormous bouquet gifted to her by her romantic husband. 

The ex-dancer also appears on TV and has given on-screen interviews during the first two World Cup ties.

There were concerns over Yerokhin's fitness ahead of the tournament however he has made the squad.

Social media influencer Maja married Manchester United defender Lindelof in Sweden last month.

Maja, who hosts her own podcast, shared photos of the beautiful countryside ceremony on her personal blog and Instagram, where she boasts 99,000 followers.

She came under fire from some United fans when she hit out at bosses over the 'disgusting' cost of executive boxes at Old Trafford.

Speaking on her podcast, Livet På Läktaren (Life in the Stands), she said: 'Players have the option to rent a box.   

'I'm not even going to tell you for how much, but a disgusting amount. If you don’t buy one you’re considered a loser. But having a box is wonderful. You get your own waiter.'
