HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The 2010 World Cup kicks off this Friday (Jun. 11), and the best looking team will likely take home the trophy.

So says Dr. Stephen Marquardt, a California-based plastic surgeon and expert in beauty analysis.

According to the doc, studies show that symmetry in the face is a sure sign of attractiveness and indicates better athletic ability.

He explains, “Symmetry predicts high physical function. A runner who has one leg shorter than the other may not run as fast as one who has legs that are the same length. So players that are attractive tend to be better athletes.”

Thus, Marquardt thinks England has a good shot at the World Cup title since they have sexy, symmetric studs like Jamie Carragher and Gareth Barry on the squad.

Brazil should also do well in the tournament thanks to the boyish good looks of midfielder Kaka.

There are, of course, exceptions since both teams also have some major butterfaces with “drive and talent” playing.
