The 2022 Men's World Cup is finally here. 

On Sunday, the first game of the 2022 Men's World Cup took place, with Ecuador beating Qatar. On Monday, the United States will take on England. 

In honor of the World Cup getting underway, let's take a look back at some iconic "Body Paint" Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue photos.

"Such a beautiful canvas!!!!" one fan wrote.

"I love the natural look of her face in this photo. The lady is stunningly beautiful," another fan added.

"Bet she has to dress differently in Qatar. Shame on you Fifa," one fan added.

Dempsey is not the only soccer figure to dress in "Body Paint" for the World Cup.

Hopefully the 2022 Men's World Cup can deliver like the "Body Paint" swimsuit photos did.

Kickoff between the United States and England is set for 2 p.m. E.T. on Sunday.
