She’s kicking off her modeling career in style.
Ali Krieger, the racy defender for the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team, strikes a nude pose for ESPN The Magazine’s Body Issue 2015.
The sexy soccer star, who has played every minute in six U.S. World Cup matches in 2011, told the magazine that she is blessed with a “little boy” body.
“I always joke to my dad and thank him for giving me this little boy body,” Krieger told ESPN.
“When I was 6 or 7, my gymnastics coach looked at my quads and told the other coach to come over and see my quads. They were big then and still are. But I’ve kind of embraced it through the years.”
Also in the magazine are Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper and Cavs forward Kevin Love among others in the seventh annual edition of the magazine.
The former Olympian said that baring her bodacious body was an empowering experience.
“It’s important to show your vulnerabilities,” she said.
“I’m proud of my body, I’m proud of my sport, I’m proud of being a female athlete. Being naked is just another aspect of that. It’s real. It’s raw. It’s honest.”
