50 Soccer Players From The 2018 World Cup That Will Awaken Your Inner Thirst

Face it, some of us might be watching soccer because we truly enjoy the sport and support the players for their skill. But for the most part, we’re staying up late and watching soccer because these 50 guys (and more) are just worth the late nights and eye bags 😉 (We’ve included their Instagram handle because you know, your Instagram feed can only get better with these guys on it!)

P.S. Just in case you’re wondering how we’re surviving our day after countless late nights, here’s a useful guide on how you can stay awake after all these late world cup matches.

  1. Kevin Trapp

    Wir sind alle sehr enttäuscht, dass wir schon in der Gruppenphase ausgeschieden sind! Jeder war sich bewusst, dass es mehr als schwierig sein wird, den größten Titel der Welt zu verteidigen, aber leider konnten wir unser volles Potenzial nicht auf den Platz bringen! Wir werden uns etwas Zeit nehmen müssen, um über alles nachzudenken, aber wir werden hart arbeiten um in Zukunft wieder erfolgreich zu sein! Ein großes Dankeschön geht an all unsere Fans, die uns bis zum Schluss unterstützt haben! 🇩🇪 // We are all very disappointed that we were already eliminated during the group stage! Everyone was aware that it will be more than difficult to defend the biggest title in the world, but unfortunately we were not able to play at our full potential! We will need to take some time to reflect, but we will come out of this working harder to make sure that the future will look bright for this team! A big thank you goes out to all our supporters who were there for us until the last moments! 🇩🇪 #DieMannschaft #WorldCup #Russia
