12 times when celebs show off their soccer skills in public

Every four years, the World Cup pulls people from all over the world together for a month to celebrate a shared passion for soccer—and models, musicians, and politicians are no exception. While the expected number of at-home global spectators of the World Cups is in the billions, professional athletes are sliding-tackling and gearing up to score their own hat tricks for their teams on the pitch, the tarmac, and even the runway.
