All the footballers who are sporting the best facial fuzzies out on the pitch

We are two days away from the 2018 FIFA World Cup quarterfinals, and there has been a fair share of penalty kicks and rewriting of the record books amidst memorable upsets and goals scored. As we brace ourselves once more for the quarterfinal match between Uruguay and France in a few days, we thought what better way to take a breather than with some eye candy to take our minds off for a bit?

If you've already seen our winning lineup of talents in this year's World Cup, let your eyes feast on the most comely facial hair spotted out on the football pitch this year. Some of these footballers' facial grooming skills are proof that their soccer skills aren't the only game-changing feature they've got down pat. Those slaying the beard game include Adil Rami's fashionable moustache (he even sported a handlebar 'stache previously), Olivier Giroud's well-trimmed beard, and Mile Jedinak's winsome beard worthy of a Lumbersexual (is that still a thing?)

Here's a roundup of the best beards we spotted on pitch at this year's World Cup. Vote in our poll below for your favourite!
