Sportraits: U.S. World Cup Team Hunks

Wc1

Interview magazine takes a look at five of the U.S. World Cup team stars and showcases some of their favorite things. Picture here, Carlos Bocanegra and Oguchi Onweyu.

Says Bocanegra of what he'd do if he didn't play soccer: "It’d be pretty cool to teach high school history. My favorite period is the Roman times. Just real rugged and manly men. You know, ripping meat apart with their teeth."

Sportrait: Oguchi Onyewu

Onyewu

Oguchi Onyewu is a defender for AC Milan, but he'll be playing for America in the upcoming World Cup.

Writes GQ: "Onyewu, who goes by Gooch, spent a lot of this season sidelined by a nasty knee injury, but he worked his way back to train with such superstar teammates as David Beckham and Ronaldinho—and the locker room doesn't have him feeling starstruck. "I've earned a spot in that world just as much as they as have," he says. Translation: He's primed to kick some ass in South Africa. In the first round, the U.S. Men's National Team faces Slovenia, Algeria, and England—and Gooch sees all three as a threat. "Slovenia beat Russia to make it, and Algeria beat Egypt," he says. 'And those are serious teams.' But of course, everyone's hyped up for the opening match: the Americans versus the Brits. Won't Gooch talk just a little trash about Beckham's home country? 'Nah,' he says. 'I think I'll stay away from that.' Smart move."
