Something occurred to us recently while watching the Real Madrid soccer team, and waiting for one of them to score a goal and take their shirts off — David Beckham might not be the hottest guy to grace the soccer field. We know, it’s blasphemy, but have you seen Cristiano Ronaldo? This guy looks like an iconic hunk for a new generation.

Ronaldo is basically following in Beckham’s footsteps — he’s a talked about soccer star, he’s posed shirtless for an Armani ad campaign, and he’s got a smokin’ hot bombshell for a girlfriend (sorry ladies). All he really needs now are a bunch of arm tattoos, a little less hair gell and a little more swagger.
