While the number of estimated at-home global viewers of the 2018 World Cup is in the billions, not only are the professional athletes slide-tackling and gearing up to score their own hat tricks for their teams, but all sorts of celebrities revel in kicking a football around or show up in jerseys too.
5. Wizkid -Nigeria
Wizkid was one of the few celebrities to access the Nigerian extra-beauty kits before they were even released. He was leading the campaign to promote the kits alongside Tiwa Savage, Kelechi Ihenacho, Yagazie Emezi, Alex Iwobi, Julie Adenuga, Not3s, Grace Ladoja, and Wilfred Ndidi. He is so proud of his country and team.

England have long stuttered on the big stage and they last reached the World Cup quarter-finals in 2006, when Beckham was captain. But the former captain still has a heart for the team: “I think obviously my choice would be England to win the competition, but that’s me being biased and passionate about my country.”
