They Look Skinny In Their Uniforms, But These World Cup Players Are Surprisingly Ripped

Soccer players might not be the most imposing athletes when it comes to physical stature, but make no mistake about it, these guys are ripped.

Unlike American football or basketball, much of a soccer player's ability comes from playing with their finesse and speed instead of power and strength.

There's also that rule where you're not supposed to use your arms or something. That would probably explain why there's a stereotype.

While it might not look like it on your television set, these guys are some of the most physically fit athletes in the world. Here are some photos to prove it.
