Anchorette War: Spain Vs Italy Beauties do Battle

COS columnist Lord of the Foot takes a close, maybe too close, look at those ladies who not only look stunning but do also have an incredible knowledge and love of the sport. A combination which is clearly too good to be true.

Aaaaah Mediterranean women. Elegant…smooth…olive colored skin…blissful perfumes and aromas. They’ll romance you with fine wines and rose petals. Think antiquity – beautiful women draped all over you, feeding grapes into your mouth. It’s quite an ideal utopia for any right-minded man. Back in reality though, we do our best to constrict to society’s rules of seduction and courting, and quite often find it a bit more difficult to conquer than our dream world…

In the same respect is our quest to meet, marry, and man-handle every hot body we see on television, all to often futile. The only thing that enables our fantasy to evolve is fixing our eyes on that television every week hoping our dream anchor will appear before us.

So, with most of Europe already underway, we turn to Italy and Spain whose domestic campaigns commence this weekend. Italy packs a strong punch, with supermodel looks and cunning reporting. The world champions, on the other hand, report their football the same way they play it – with class and a soft tenderness. Making beauty so incredibly simple. We are all blessed to bear witness to such magnificence on a weekly basis.

Let the battle for Mediterranean supremacy begin!


Laura Esposto – Sky Sport Italy and the Milan Channel. If these aren’t enough for you, and work is a bit slow today, feel free to check out her website for plenty more.

Federica Fontana – Move over boys. Not only will she promptly melt your screens, but she’s been known to commentate matches on occasion as well!! Don’t worry though, she still finds time to submit monthly photo shoots to GQ. Wow.

Elena Di Cioccio – Remember that bit about the “cunning reporting?” Well here she is, the one and only Italian reporter who  tried getting a handful of Beckham’s crown jewels earlier this year.


Sonia Ferrer – The darling of Catalunya, Sonia wears her Barcelona pride on her sleeve for local channel TVE.

Sara Carbonero – No words can capture the essence of this woman…oh I almost forgot! Rumors abound (unsubstantiated to be fair) that Sara plans to pose for Brazilian Playboy. Please don’t let us down!
