13 World Cup Footballers On Instagram

They're bored. They're in Brazil. Go behind the scenes with these selfie-happy players

Most Popular
Phil Jagielka
The centre half has only just started using instagram. So far we've seen beautiful shots of Brazil and a picture of him playing tennis with Oasis tribute act Leighton Baines. England expects, Phil.
 
 
 
Juan Mata
Ever a creative soul, midfielder Mata will document Spain's defence of their title mainly via slightly melancholic landscape shots. Expect filters.
 
 

Didier Drogba
Every after successive failures to live up to the 'golden generation tag', the Ivory Coast team seem like a happy bunch. Follow their exploits via captain Didier.
 
 
 
Daniel Sturridge
The striker has already starting posting beach selfies from Roy Hodgson's happy camp. Expect it go through the roof when England definitely win the World Cup.
 
 

David Luiz
How do the host nation cope with the pressure of being tournament favourites? By letting off steam on social media, of course. Let former-Chelsea defender and Simpsons star David be your guide.
 
 

Jack Wilshere
The former Esquire model and (possible) England engine room has been documenting the squad's obligatory charity stops so far in Brazil.
 
 

Mario Balotelli
The Italy prankster has already shown a deftness of touch when it comes to editing video. Let's hope it abandons him when he lines up against England on Saturday.
 
 

Raheem Sterling
England's great young hope is clearly a bit giddy at being at a World Cup, Instagraming his spot in the changing room as well as the Brazilian beaches. As he should be, lucky scamp.

Steven Gerrard
Captain Marvel has got in on the act too, so far using the 'Gram to show off his hithero unseen sense of humour. Might want to be careful with those 'crotch shots' though Stevie...


Neymar
Great things are expected of Brazil's young striker on the pitch. On Instagram? Mainly just lots of topless seflies.

Eden Hazard
The man with the best name in football will be documenting the Belgian team as they try to justify the hype that has risen out of the fact we've heard of a few of their players.

 


Lucas Podolski
The  striker favours the 'Rocky' gesture when it comes to Instagraming himself with his various teammates. Let hope Germany don't get to deliver the knockout punch to England's chances this World Cup.


 

Clint Dempsey
The American allstar will be leading his countries hopes both on the pitch and on Instagram, where he is already showing as touch as sure as his recent outrageous nutmeg.
