The World Cup 2022 kicks off today in Qatar, and a number of England World Cup WAGs are thought to have flown out to support the star players.

It is likely that as the football tournament progresses, we'll see the other halves of Harry Kane, Jack Grealish and Raheem Sterling among those cheering the team on from the sidelines.

In previous World Cup tournaments, the off-pitch activities of the players' wives and girlfriends has been a source of as much interest as the goings-on of the game itself.

Their prominence was particularly boosted in the 2000s by the presence of WAGs who had fame in their own right – including David Beckham's wife Victoria and Ashley Cole's then-wife Cheryl Tweedy.

From Jack Grealish's girlfriend Sasha Attwood to Kylie Walker's wife Annie Kilner, watch out for these supportive WAGs in the stands...
