Long scorned and sometimes derided, women's football is today a globally significant and more popular sport. In addition to the talent and ability on display, this game draws the cameras due to the presence of some of the hottest female soccer players in the world.

Complementing their outstanding skill sets and extraordinary accomplishments is an appealing, drop-dead physical beauty; these are the sexiest and most beautiful female football players in the world right now.

1. Alisha Lehmann

With highlight reels that have dazzled football lovers not just for her kicking technique or dribbling ability, Alisha Lehmann is the hottest female football player in the world. 

Despite being just 24 years old at the time of publication, the Bern player is the most followed sportswoman on Instagram.

As of May 2023, the Aston Villa midfielder and Swiss international with over 26 caps has exceeded the historic milestone of 13 million Instagram followers, surpassing Roger Federer as the most-followed Swiss athlete on the platform. This cements her as the world's most sexy female soccer player.

2. Julini Sally

As evidenced by her voluptuous frame and dark complexion, proudly advertised on her Instagram account, wonderkid Julini Sally is one of the hottest female footballers in the world. 

The Carouge-born female soccer player debuted in the Champions League as a teenager and is currently based in Brittany, France.

3. Ana Maria Marković

Dubbed the world's most beautiful footballer by several European media agencies, including Marca and the British Sun, Ana Maria Markovic is the third sexiest female soccer player in the world. The blonde stunner of Croatian descent, born in Zurich and based near her birthplace of Split, plays for Grasshopper and tallied four goals in her debut.

In addition to football, the hot female soccer player manages marketing and administration as an Instagram model with over 2.8 million followers.

Born in 1999, Ana Maria Markovic believes her greatest football attributes are agility and wing penetration (no pun intended). This hot women's footballer obtained 2022's Vecernjakova Domovnica award for the most popular Croatian woman living abroad.

Ana Maria Markovic solidified her status as one of the world's most sexy female soccer players by placing 94th on TC Candler's list of the world's 100 most attractive features, a classification based on a survey of 160,000 celebrities. 

Intriguingly, the Croatian star surpassed well-known names such as Margot Robbie, who has been described as a "woman without flaws" (96th place), Jenna Ortega (97th place), and Lily Collins (100th place).

Ana Markovi's status as one of the world's hottest female football players has not eluded the notice of Brazilian sensation Neymar, who liked a sultry Instagram photo of her wearing a Croatian jersey.

In 2021, she had approximately 20,000 Instagram followers, which by April 2023 had exploded to a staggering 2.8 million.

4. Thalea Smidt

Thalea Smidt is a striking South African beauty who plays for the Masandawana Ka Bo of Mamelodi Sundowns. The Liverpool fan is one of the world's sexiest female soccer players due to her well-chiselled facial features and exceptionally luminous, melanin-toned complexion.

Born in Cape Town, Thalea Smidt, Africa's sexiest female footballer, was the captain of TUKS and a member of the team that won the COSAFA CAF Women's Qualifiers tournament in Durban.

5. Adriana Leon

"Adriana Leon is a winger with speed and expertise in one-on-one situations who is not afraid to irritate her opponents." 

This was the description of Manchester United's Adriana Leon, one of the globe's most beautiful female football players, on the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup website.

A mere six months later, the sexy footballer's brace helped her Women's Super League club, West Ham, sink rivals, Liverpool, by a score of 4 to 2. The 30-year-old is not only a talented football player but also one of the hottest women's football players in the world.

6. Lauren Sesselmann

If the 2014 movie Dark Awakening was intended to frighten viewers, it is difficult to be terrified by the sight of Lauren Sesselmann, one of the world's most beautiful women's footballers.

The actress, who was primarily a Canadian international football player from 2011 to 2015, portrayed Faith in the horror/thriller, a role too mundane for one of the hottest female soccer players on the planet.

Sesselmann competed in the 2012 Olympic Games and the 2015 World Cup and currently plays for the Santa Clarita Blue Heat in the W-League.

Lauren's social media timeline, linked above, is a torrent of extremely sultry photos that have totally rivalled her performances on the field of play and solidified her status as one of the sexiest female football players in the world.

7. Lina Hurtig

Lina Hurtig, who resides in London, one of the world's largest metropolises, is without question the most beautiful female footballer in the world. Despite her striking appearance, the Swedish international has done a commendable job of concealing her sexual attractiveness. 

A member of the homosexual divide, the 27-year-old boyish beauty is married to Linkopings FC player Lisa Lantz. 

8. Joelle Bukuru

With her high fade haircut, endearing face, and no makeup look, the extremely photogenic Joelle Bukuru is the most beautiful female football player based in Africa.

Unfortunately, the international star from Burundi has no discernible Instagram or other social media accounts.

9. Sydney Leroux

Sydney Leroux is not just one of the most sexy female football players in the world but also has one of the most athletic physiques, as evidenced by snaps on her Instagram account, linked above.

The Canadian-born forward sparked a social media frenzy in March 2019 when she returned to training with her club, Orlando Pride, while five months pregnant.

To retain her status as one of the world's hottest female soccer players, Sydney Leroux maintained her fitness with exercises that did not include contact with the ball a month before the tournament. Consequently, her performance attracted the attention of other players, notably her colleague, Alex Morgan.

10. Alex Morgan

Alex Morgan, 33, has one of the most complete resumes in active women's football, having won the French League, the Champions League with Lyon, the Olympics, and the World Cup with the United States.

After winning her second world championship in July 2019, the American was forced to put her career on hiatus in favour of motherhood for the first time.

Today, Alex Morgan is not only one of the wealthiest and most accomplished female football players in the world but also one of the most beautiful.

11. Agata Isabella Centasso

Agata Isabella Centasso, midfielder for the women's team of Venice, has a divine visage and a flawless physique that makes her one of the sexiest female footballers in the world. Lauded by The Sun, which devoted a rather complimentary article to her physical attractiveness, the Italian beauty is a formidable and irresistible force of nature.

Since infancy, Agata Isabella Centasso has participated in football with her father and siblings, who instilled in her a passion for the sport.

The hot women's footballer has over 60k followers on Instagram and is in a relationship with Andrea Migliorini, a Lavello footballer.

Despite having an overwhelming title of one of the world's most beautiful female football players, Agata Isabella Centasso divides her time between social media and the football pitch by caring for people with disabilities as a social-health worker.

12. Salma Paralluelo

Salma Celeste Paralluelo Ayingono, who was born in Zaragoza on November 13, 2003, is a Barcelona player with a background in both athletics and football. She is one of the world's most beautiful female footballers due to her enchanting smile and radiant ebony complexion.

Salma Paralluelo, daughter of a Spanish father and an Equatorial Guinean mother, earned two international gold medals in athletics and the Princess Leonor Award for the most outstanding Spanish athlete under the age of 18 in 2018.

13. Mallory Swanson

Married to MLB shortstop Dansby Swanson, Mallory Swanson falls more into the category of attractiveness than sensuality due to her modesty.

The United States international is the youngest player in USWNT history to achieve 10 career assists and retains the record for the most career assists by a USWNT player under the age of 20.

In January 2016, at the age of 17, this beautiful female footballer became the youngest player in USWNT history to be selected for and compete in an Olympic qualifying tournament.

14. Kosovare Asllani

Kosovare Asllani has been compared to Zlatan Ibrahimovic for a long time, and despite her refusal to acknowledge it, there are certain parallels between the two, beginning with the fact that the 30-year-old has also played for Paris Saint-Germain.

The Swede played for CD Tacon since the summer of 2019, before its merger with the Real Madrid women's football team, until 2022, when she ended as the Galactica's top scorer before moving to AC Milan.

The first currently active female footballer to win the Golden Foot, Kosovare Asllani is not only one of the brilliant faces of this brand but also one of the world's hottest female football players.
