African Footballers Star in Sexy World Cup Photoshoot – Selling Football to the Masses

“FIFA needs to make this the mandatory ball playing gear. They would sell out on tickets in less than 2 days” – Anonymous

All over the internet images of the football’s biggest stars in their flag covered boxers are popping up.  Included in the photos are African footballers who have become famous for not only playing in Europe but for their commitment to play for their home teams in Africa.

Photographer Annie Leibovitz traveled to between Europe and the U.S. to capture the images for a Vanity Fair feature entitled Playing for the World.  Among those featured are Cote d’Ivoire’s Didier Drogba (who made it onto the cover), Cameroon’s Samuel Eto’o and Ghana’s giggling Sulley Muntari. After watching the video and staring at the photos, take a look at Vanity Fair’s entertaining Football Blog – Fair Play.
