We’re going to Russia too! Meet the England World up WAGS
Move over Coleen, there’s a new set of WAGS in town! As the England squad is revealed, meet the very glamorous women heading for Russia – including a stunning lingerie model, reality TV star and long-suffering fiancée
- England’s World Cup team has been announced by manager Gareth Southgate
- With Coleen Rooney no longer Queen Wag following husband Wayne’s retirement last summer, there’s a new generation of wives and girlfriends
- Tournament kicks off in Russia on June 14th with many WAGS set to attend
- The glamorous bunch include Dele Alli’s stunning lingerie model squeeze Ruby Mae and Raheem Sterling’s dedicated fiancee Paige Milian
The World Cup kicks off in less than four weeks and, with the official England squad announced by manager Gareth Southgate this afternoon, it’s now clear exactly who’s in and who’s out.
So, which of the WAGS will be heading to Russia to watch The Three Lions either roar their way to glory, or make it 52 years of hurt?
There’s been a significant change in the wag hierarchy since the last major international football tournament, Euro 2016, with Queen of the Wags Coleen Rooney no longer leading the supporting cast of ladies – after husband Wayne’s retirement from international duty last year.
While Southgate hasn’t yet made any murmurings about how much contact wives and girlfriends will be allowed to have with their men, it’s been a mixed bag in recent tournaments, with some managers issuing strict curfews on family time.
Here’s both the full squad announcement and the latest generation of WAGS who’ll be packing their suitcases and heading east:
