As much as I’d like to go over why we should have won last night’s game against Portugal, I’m choosing to excuse myself from dwelling on that last-minute tie and instead take a moment to discuss something we’re all a little less sad about. Like, style.

Soccer can be as much a sport of dynamic athletes as it is of sartorial pros – just look to the New York Post's inventory of the World Cup’s most fashionable as proof. Worth noting? Italy’s forward Mario Balotelli, who wore mismatched cleats in brilliant blue and pink. Turns out they were PUMA Tricks, released specifically for the 2014 Cup. (Leave it to this fashion-forward player to be one of the first to sport the new trend.)
Another stylish player of note is Neymar (featured above), whom the Post calls “Brazil’s It boy.” With spiked blond hair and a primary-color-coordinated look, I think Neymar won the sartorial game for the World Cup – or, he would have if there were an actual competition for it.
Regardless, he and all the other soccer style pros out there serve as a good distraction from last night. You feel better already, right?
