Table of Contents
A dating website with a strict ban on ugly people has put each World Cup player through its merciless rating system to reveal the tournament's best and worst looking players.

Each player was assessed using a rating system by members of the dating site, which prides itself on its morally dubious stance of banning ugly people from joining.

Topping the list of the best-looking players at the tournament is Italy captain Fabio Cannavaro. He is followed by Fernando Torres and David Villa, both from Spain.

But there was more bad news for English duo Wayne Rooney and John Terry, whose World Cup misery is compounded as they made the Ugliest XI side - with former topping the list as the ugliest player at the tournament.

Greg Hodge, managing director of, said: "The most beautiful player according to our members is Italy's Fabio Cannavaro, followed by two Spanish players, Fernando Torres and David Villa.

"American talisman Landon Donovan, who wept after he helped the USA win their group, was voted fourth most beautiful player."

Meanwhile, the most beautiful teams are Spain, Italy, Brazil, France, Denmark and the USA - they all have at least one beautiful player and the lowest number of unattractive players.

The least attractive teams are Switzerland, Australia, England, Serbia, North Korea and Algeria.

Hodge added: "Collectively, the worst looking team is Algeria. The term 'trophy head' could have been coined for most of their team.

"England follows close behind, captained by the most unattractive player on the planet, Wayne Rooney.

"The England team do have very beautiful wives and girlfriends, but this is surely due to their bank accounts which certainly makes them a lot more attractive." claims it's the largest community of attractive people in the world and so far over 200,000 members have cast their vote.
