Some of the famous faces set to appear at this year's FIFA World Cup in Russia are also known for their interesting fashion sense apart from their reputations as juggernauts on the football field.

Here are some of the footballers known for having a good sense of fashion off the field: 

Cristiano Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo is a triple delight: a fantastic footballer, handsome Portuguese, and a humble philanthropist. Ronaldo has some of the best fashion sense off of the football field, and he never fails to share with the millions of fans that he has on Instagram - whether in a suit or dressed down in a pair of jeans and t-shirt.

Marco Reus 
This German forward has had some of the worst luck on the field with his ever-growing injury list, but when he's fit, he creates sensational goals for his club Borussia Dortmund and his national team. Off the field he is known for his smart-casual fashion style.

Christian Eriksen
The Danish and Tottenham Hotspurs attacking midfielder is the stereotypical blonde-hair, blue-eyed jock who also happens to have great street style. Apart from his great play making moves, fans will be excited to see how the Dane dresses on his off days.

The Brazil and PSG striker is well known for his street style, with his signature accessories being a bandanna. When he's not on the field (most likely due to injury), the Brazilian is seen out and about with his family or his close friends, as seen in the picture below with fellow Brazilian teammate Gabriel Jesus.

Alexander Iwobi
The Nigerian and Arsenal midfielder does not only have a good sense of fashion but he's also easy on the eye. Although the jury is out on how well Nigeria will perform at this year's FIFA World Cup, at least we know that Iwobi hit the right spots with his street style.
Lionel Messi
The Argentine and Barcelona striker is not only a maestro with the ball but also a growing legend in the world of football. Messi has a simple style sense and you're most likely to catch him in either a hoodie and a pair of jeans, a crisp white shirt with a bow tie, or a tailored suit.
