The 2022 World Cup is almost here.

Get ready, soccer fans, the 2022 Men's World Cup is almost here. 

A week from today, games from the 2022 Men's World Cup in Qatar will be kicking off. The United States men's national team opens up its 2022 World Cup next Monday against Wales. 

In honor of the 2022 World Cup starting in a week, let's take a look back at when the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue featured some prominent soccer wives and girlfriends.

Of course, they posed in "Body Paint" jerseys.

The "Body Paint" photoshoots had a United States feel, as well, with the wife of Clint Dempsey posing for Sports Illustrated Swimsuit.

She went viral on social media.

The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue has honored some of the women's players, too.

Alex Morgan even posed in "Body Paint" for the magazine.

Hopefully the 2022 Men's World Cup will live up to the hype, as well as these photos did.
