Africa's biggest soccer tournament starts on Sunday, and the continent's women are lining up to ogle some of the most beautiful bodies around.

Most men will watch the African Cup of Nations for the love of soccer, but most women are in it for the eye candy.

Thighs, six-packs, hairdos and bad-boy attitudes will be rated as intensely as the players' ability to control the ball over the next three weeks.

Sowetan has compiled a list of eye-catching, goal-scoring and just plain gorgeous men - who will be the envy of the Plain Joes watching the tournament in Ghana.

The main man to watch in the tournament will be Ivory Coast's hotter-than-fire Didier Drogba.

Drogba has it all: thighs, the six pack, a stern and serious face plus speed on the field.

But it is his long hair that makes women drool over the Chelsea striker. Few men can pull off that rough-and-ready look.

Chelsea's two other players are also hot prospects.

First is the Black Stars' midfielder Michael Essien, who makes it into the good-looking-men-of-the-tournament competition for his soccer pedigree and delightful thighs.

Then there is Nigerian midfielder John Mikel Obi, who qualifies by virtue of his cuteness and prowess on the field.

At the tender age of 19, and not ignoring his football skills, Obi is sure to make young soccer lovers love him even more.

Closely following them is Cameroonian Samuel Eto'o, who has grown his mane into a jet- black Afro - which complements his fine features. The FC Barcelona player never stops entertaining his fans, and things will not change for the gals on the sidelines this year.

Is it his six pack or the scar on the side of Bafana Bafana's Aaron Mokoena's lip that makes him so attractive?

Though Mokoena failed to impress and was a real unhappy camper in 2006 when coach Ted Dumitru appointed Sibusiso Zuma captain of Bafana, he is tall, dark and handsome - features that the ladies will always earnestly debate.

Ignore the blonde hair that is Sibusiso Zuma's trademark and concentrate on the somersaults after the man scores a goal - and you will be bowled over.

The tall striker from Arminia Bielefeld in Germany always manages to impress and is at the peak of his career. Zuma will surely put those balls in (pun intended).

Marouane Chamakh from Morocco is another hottie to watch. But his goal-scoring abilities will be tested, and he will have to work at increasing those statistics. Chamakh has scored an impressive 30 goals in 39 appearances for his country since 2003.

Were it not for his knee injury, Stephen Appiah of Ghana would likely have featured near the top of this list.

These are the favoured hotties. But ladies, hang out innocently with your gruff partners and decide for yourself.
