The WAGs cheering on England at the World Cup

England manager Gareth Southgate named his squad today which he hopes will lead the country to World Cup glory in Qatar this winter.

His 26 footballers will journey to Doha next week ahead of their first match against Iran on November 21 – and the team will be supported by a glamorous array of wives and girlfriends.

Many of those heading to Qatar to cheer on the squad will reportedly be staying on a £1billion cruise liner off the coast with their husbands not allowed on board.

MSC World Europa – dubbed a ‘floating palace’ – usually costs £2,434.80 for nine nights and boasts a cinema, six swimming pools and 30 bars.

A former Wag who was in Russia for the 2018 World Cup told Mailonline that the women had been swapping messages on Whatsapp with fears over their freedom to meet with the players due to Covid rules and the strict restrictions in Qatar.

She said: ‘There are coronavirus rules they have to follow as well as the fact that holding hands and kissing in Qatar is forbidden. The women don’t know what to make of it all. One asked me the other night if she could be arrested for posing in her bikini on Instagram.

‘Many of the girls also have young babies and children, so we don’t think there will be as big a turnout as in recent years.’

Jack Grealish’s girlfriend Sasha Attwood is among several WAGs reported to have booked a cabin on the ship MSC World Europa which is set to dock off the coast of Doha.

But Southgate has not declared whether he will allow the WAGs to meet his team at the Souq Al Wakra hotel in Doha where he will stay with his 26-man squad. 

Nonetheless, many WAGS are no doubt going to make the journey to Qatar to support their partners. 

Here, FEMAIL takes a look at the very glamorous WAGS supporting the footballers… 

MEGAN DAVISON

Married to Jordan Pickford

There’s brains and beauty; Davison has studied for a degree while supporting her boyfriend

Megan Davison met Everton ace Jordan Pickford when they were teenagers. The childhood sweethearts have been dating since she was 14 and he was 16 after meeting at school and share a son, Arlo.

The pair went out on their first date to the cinema while he was a pupil at St Robert of Newminster Catholic School in their native Washington, Tyne and Wear.

Megan, now 26, graduated from university in 2019. She had son, Arlo, in February that year, and the couple were married in March 2020 at a register office in Crewe, having had to postpone their lavish Maldives nuptials due to the pandemic.

The ceremony was distinctly understated, with Pickford wearing a baseball cap and ripped jeans, while the bride wore Givenchy studded boots and carried a Dior handbag.

An Instagram star with platinum hair and a love of shopping, Megan has assumed a ‘mother hen’ status with the other wives.  Ahead of the opening game of the Euros against Croatia, she arranged a pre-match party for them (pictures from which she shared on Instagram.)

She sparked controversy in December last year after sharing a message in support of anti-vax protestors. Megan shared a photo from the so-called Freedom March that sparked chaotic scenes across central London on December 18.

The demonstration, declared a ‘major incident’ by London mayor Sadiq Khan, was attended by thousands of anti-vaxxers after further restrictions were put in place to slow the spread of new coronavirus variant Omicron.

Davison appeared to show a degree of empathy for the mob by sharing a photo of one protestor holding a placard emblazoned with the message: ‘Even if you’re not conspiracy minded, something in your soul has to say…something is wrong.’

The photo was posted without additional comment from the mother-of-one, and is no longer present on her Instagram account.

Kyle Walker met Annie Kilner when he was 18 while he was playing at his hometown club Sheffield United, when the model was 16. The smitten couple are parents to three children – Roman, Riaan and Reign.

Having supported Kyle through the 2018 World Cup, in March 2019, she dumped him after he allegedly sent messages to Ex On The Beach reality star Laura Brown.

As well as the three children he shares with Annie, Kyle shares son Kairo, 14 months, with ex Lauryn Goodman.

The footballer conceived his youngest child Kairo while involved in a short relationship with Lauryn, during a temporary split from Annie in February 2020.

In June 2020, the Mirror reported that Kyle had popped the question to Annie with an epic floral proposal at her home.

Last year, Annie claimed that days before Kyle allegedly met Lauryn, she suffered a miscarriage, and was devastated when she claimed he confessed that the reality star was pregnant.

She told The Sun On Sunday at the time: ‘I don’t know what my thoughts or feelings are any more. I feel dead inside. Each day is filled with pain.

‘I don’t think I’ll ever be the same again because of what he’s done. It makes me really sad that I’ve been damaged so badly when I’ve done nothing to deserve it.

‘I’ve tried to hate him but how can I hate the man my kids love so much? Before the infidelity he was my best friend, my soulmate. I could count on him for anything.’

Kyle also came under fire last year for allegedly hosting a sex party with two escorts while the country remained in Covid-19 lockdown.

It was claimed the footballer and a friend, paid £2,200 for Louise McNamara, 21, and a 24-year-old Brazilian call girl to visit his Cheshire home, before leaving the next day.

Walker, who has 48 England caps, apologised for the incident.

He said: ‘I want to take this opportunity to issue a public apology for the choices I made last week. I understand that my position as a professional footballer brings the responsibility of being a role model.

‘As such, I want to apologise to my family, friends, football club, supporters and the public for letting them down.’

Earlier this year, Lauryn lashed out at Kyle after the England defender unveiled a pair of bespoke football boots bearing the names of each of his children – but not Kairo.

It offers six swimming pools, 30 bars and cafes, a cinema and the tallest slide on any ship in the world – so it’s no wonder that the MSC World Europa – dubbed a ‘floating palace’ – is said to be hosting England’s WAGs during the World Cup in Qatar.

The luxury £1billion cruise liner – which usually costs £2,434.80 for nine nights – has set sail for Doha and was spotted making its way through the Suez Canal on Wednesday, according to The Sun, ahead of setting up base at the Doha Port.

WAGs set to live aboard the vessel during the 2022 FIFA World Cup – which is taking place from 20 November to 18 December – include air hostess Georgina Irwin, 26, who is engaged to goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale, 24, Phil Foden’s girlfriend Rebecca Cooke, 22, and Harry Maguire’s wife Fern, 27, reported the publication.

Guests will be living the high life, thanks to onboard beauty salons, boutiques, dodgems, 14 ocean-view Jacuzzis and the longest dry-slide at sea titled The Venom Drop to keep them entertained between matches.

But while the wives and girlfriends of the football stars will lap up the luxury of the swanky ship – complete with its very own shopping mall, roller disco rink and a range of clubs for children – it’s said that players won’t be allowed on board as they are set to form their own strict Covid bubble at the Souq Al Wakra hotel in Doha.

Elsewhere on the cruise liner, a Sportplex zone offers basketball, bumper cars and even a roller disco rink, meaning plenty of opportunities for fun, alongside more than 30 bars and cafes, as well as a micro-brewery and mixology classes in its Elixir gin bar.

With a tonnage of 215,863 GT and length of 333.3 m (1,094 ft), its beam is 47 m (154 ft), height is 68 m (223 ft) and speed, 22.7 knots and a capacity of 6,762 passengers.

Covering 21 decks, there are 2,138 crew members, two five blade propellers and seven thrusters being four Bow and two stern.

Packages begin at £6,000 for the footballers’ families to stay on the luxury liner, with model Anna Modler, 24, who is dating defender Eric Dier, 28, also rumoured to be among them. 

An insider told the publication: ‘The boat is an amazing place to stay. It is like a floating palace, which is why many of the players’ wives and families quickly snapped up packages that the Football Association arranged.

‘Due to the fact the boat is off shore, guests can have a drink and enjoy themselves without having to worry about falling foul of Qatar’s strict rules. 

‘And many hotels aren’t even allowed sunbathing areas. But by staying on the boat guests just relax and have a great time. If England do go all the way it’s likely to become like a carnival on board.’

In Qatar there are strict alcohol rules, but because the MSC World Europa is ‘off-shore’, those on board can sip on champagne without fear of legal repercussions. 

Meanwhile, manager Gareth Southgate is said to be desperate to ensure that coronavirus won’t dash his squad’s hopes of lifting the world cup. 

The publication said sources from the Football Association confirmed that Covid restrictions will be in place for the first three opening games of the competition, and will likely continue for the duration of England’s participation in the games. 

MailOnline have contacted representatives of MSC World Europa for comment.

It comes after England’s WAGs were allegedly told they’re ‘not above the law’ while ordered to follow a strict list of rules ahead of the World Cup in conservative Qatar. 

Those expected to attend could face jail time if they don’t take the warning seriously, and it has been claimed they were issued the instructions at a secret presentation.

Dressing modestly in public, abstaining from drinking alcohol or packing on the PDA, swearing, playing music, singing, shouting, or acting ‘inappropriately’ during the call to prayer are all thought to have been included on the agenda.

Jack ­Grealish’s girlfriend Sasha Attwood, Harry Kane’s wife Katie Goodland, Jordan Pickford’s wife Megan Davison, Jarrod Bowen’s girlfriend Dani Dyer and Harry’s wife Fern are some of the partners of the England football team. 

A source told The Sun: ‘The FA left little room for doubt. They have been very clear about the rules and have a responsibility to the players and their families to make sure they are aware of the local laws and customs.

‘They cannot — and will not — tolerate any controversy or incident that could and should have been avoided with good planning. It is important the WAGs understand Qatar is not England and will treat everyone even handedly, irrespective of who they are.’

In Qatar, littering is illegal – with a £6,000 fine and a year in jail – and taking selfies outside government buildings could lead to police action, they were reportedly warned.

MailOnline has contacted the FA for comment. 

This isn’t the first time that the England WAGs have been warned about the strict rules in Qatar that they should be aware of.

At a meeting before England’s 3-3 draw with Germany last month, FA chiefs said: ‘It is important to understand that you and your husband/partner are not above the law here. Every order is in place to protect both yourselves and your partner/husband in any case of indiscretion. Fines and prosecution are commonplace.’

Last month it was revealed that partners of the England players have booked in at Banana Island, a luxury spot 25 minutes by boat from the Doha seafront, according to the place’s sales director.

Those with children have their eyes on the biggest chalets which sleep five. Benefits include a helipad, should they prefer that to the motor launch, with white leather seats, complimentary dates and cold flannels.

Those £6,000 a night chalets, built on stilts which sit in the Arabian Sea, won’t offer total escape from hoi polloi.

Anyone can catch the boat and pay £100 to enjoy the resort’s pool and beach. But with a cinema, a surf pool with a wave machine and scuba diving courses, it all rather contributes to the sense that England’s partners are well ahead of the rest when it comes to the accommodation quest for Group B.
