As the Azzurri take on the Ukraine today in the Quarters... you can bet your bottom dollar that the Socceroos will be holding their heads up high over their World Cup showing.
They can also be proud of their Australian ladies soccer team recent showing in a Nude calandar. Considering 32 years had passed since the men returned to the World Cup scene we think an unveiling of these pictures of the women's team 6 years later will be just as successful and well received by soccer fans everywhere. Click here for our Aussie Photo Album and enjoy. Also for those more interested in articles... you can even read up on the Matilda's respective backgrounds.
Although not quite as hot as the Brazilian bunch (we wax on about them here and provide you with 30 pictures), the Aussie women's team scored extra points considering all the ladies are from their real Olympic soccer team. (Reportedly Brazil put out feelers for models in their infamous shoot). Unfortunately due to that controversial Italian PK the colorful canary teams won't be going head to head in the World Cup but their lovely ladies can battle it out on paper.
We'll start things off... the Aussies calendar cover girl, Amy Taylor (see pictured), is theWadeBlogs.com personal fav. as she resembles a young, hot version of Britney Spears. What do you think of the Australian Bush? (sorry we couldn't resist)
