Love Island World Cup: If EVERY contestant was a 2018 World Cup team

Love Island World Cup: If EVERY contestant was a 2018 World Cup team

Let’s have our own Love Island World Cup.

Two huge competitions are now unfolding with the 2018 World Cup and series four of Love Island in full swing.

Your TV remote may play victim to some aggressive tug of war contests over the next few weeks, although we’re here to point out that the World Cup and Love Island have more in common than you’d think.

Which team are you rooting for? Who’s your favourite Islander?

This is every Love Island contestant – if they were a World Cup team!

Kendall Rae-Knight – Panama

Just like Panama in their first ever World Cup, Kendall Rae-Knight never really stood a chance.

Will we ever see on her on the big stage again?

We’d like to, but probably not.

Kendall – Love Island: SR4: Ep2 on ITV2

Niall Aslam – Peru

Despite being earmarked as an early surprise favourite and darkhorse of the competition, the curtain closed a lot earlier than expected for Niall – and likely Peru, too.

They’re both still pretty damn cool, though.

Hayley Hughes – Morocco

For those who decided not to tune in for Iran’s last-ditch 1-0 victory over Morocco, you missed out on the opportunity to develop a hammering migraine.

The Morocco fans pumped on their vuvuzelas for 90-minutes straight, proving the most annoying thing on TV since Hayley Hughes’s voice.

Hayley – Love Island, ITV2, series 4, episode 6

Georgia Steel – Argentina

Both Argentina and Georgia Steel are unpredictable, bursting with energy and a little bit bonkers.

Following a 1-1 draw with Iceland, what will Argentina do next?

Hell, what on earth will Georgia do next?!

Eyal Booker – Uruguay

With Luis Suarez leading the line, Uruguay will always be remembered for that handball and act of cheating during the 2010 World Cup.

Both Eyal and Uruguay are pretty despised, although unfortunately, that won’t stop either of them making a good run towards the final.

Angry Eyal Booker – Love Island, series 4, episode 10

Charlie Frederick – Egypt

Alike Egypt and team Mohamed Salah, Charlie was a bit of a fan favourite.

However, with Egypt in a group consisting of Uruguay and hosts Russia, they’ve essentially had their feet tied to a Hayley Hughes and will be sinking quicker than the Titanic.

Zara McDermott – Nigeria

Little point being there and not the most attractive football club in the competition.

The sooner we get rid of Zara and Nigeria, the better.

Love Island – Zara – ITV2, series 4.

Wes Nelson – Spain

Do we have any idea about what is going on with Spain?

They sacked manager Julen Lopetegui two days before the tournament, before following up with a rollercoaster 3-3 draw with Portugal in their opening game.

Both Spain and Wes are tipped for the finals, but literally, anything can happen at this stage – and we’re talking about them both.

Samira Mighty – Senegal

The team that no-one wanted in the office sweepstake – no-one wants to wifey Samira either.

Megan Barton Hanson – Mexico

Just like Mexico, Megan came swooping in and f*cked things up.

A 1-0 win against Germany, where did that come from?

Both Mexico and Megan are surprise favourites to enjoy solid runs in the two contrasting competitions. They’re both certainly keeping the Love Island World Cup interesting…

Josh Denzel – Croatia

Croatia enjoyed a decent start to the 2018 World Cup following a 2-0 victory over Nigeria.

With Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic pulling the strings, perhaps they can be considered a bit of a darkhorse to push on in the competition.

Can Josh do the same?

Jack Fincham – France

Jack is a strong favourite to go all the way in Love Island, and both him and France have made solid starts to their campaigns.

A great all-around team, very likeable and quietly going about their business – that’s a perfect description for France and Jack. A Love Island World Cup dream team!

Rosie Williams – Australia

Rosie has been mugged off by her villa boyfriend Adam Collard, drawing comparisons to how many Australian’s felt following their 2-1 defeat to France and run of luck with the VAR.

Neither Rosie or Australia are going to reach the final though, so chin up – mate.

Rosie Williams – Love Island: SR4: Ep12 on ITV2

Laura Anderson – Costa Rica

The team with the highest average age is only the team we can draw comparisons to Laura Anderson.

Costa Rica have an average age of 29.6 years old, isn’t that convenient…

Love Island: SR4 on ITV2, Laura Anderson

Ellie Brown – Sweden

Blonde. Semi-decent. Blonde.

Definitely better than Costa Rica, too…

Ellie Brown – Love Island 2018, ITV2, series 4,

Dr Alex George – England

If there is one team with a knack for freezing on the big occasion, you have to admit that it is England.

They fumbled over the line needing a 91st-minute finish from Harry Kane just to overcome a team like Tunisia.

We’re all hoping that both England and Dr Alex can heroically win their tournaments, although we’re not sure which one is going to make us the biggest emotional wreck in the process.

Probably Alex. 

Adam Collard – Brazil

On paper, Adam Collard was matched with almost every girl in the villa.

And, just like Brazil, he’s the one that everyone wanted to claim in their sweepstake.

Both Brazil and Adam have plenty of questions to answer at this stage. However, with teams like Switzerland and people like Zara throwing spanners in the works, it may be tricky.

Dani Dyer – Russia

When your dad is Danny Dyer, you’ve basically given yourself a bit of an intimidating advantage when it comes to nailing down a respectable boyfriend.

Although Dani is a much stronger favourite to win the Love Island than Russia are to win the World Cup, you can’t help but feel that Dani is will be purposely kept in the competition so that her dad can make an appearance in the final stages.

Not saying the Love Island World Cup is fixed, but you know…
