Robin Scott and his DNA crew (in red) put up a fantastic battle in the final against George and the Major men (blue).

While the 2010 World Cup is still a week away, fashionable soccer fans enjoyed the athleticism and eye-candy at Friday’s Male Model World Cup. Sponsored by VMan and conceived by VMan editor Jacob Brown and Mathias Lauridsen, the event brought together male models from all the top NY agencies for a lively competition that was all in good fun. Models from VNY, Request, DNA Models, New York Models, Major Models and Ford Models all showed up on the fields to prove their stuff and while everyone worked their hardest, the victory went to the men of Major. Their prize? An upcoming photo shoot in this summer’s VMan. (all images Betty for models.com)

Next year, Team VNY!

The heated finals pit DNA against Major.

JD Ferguson gave a lively and often quite hilarious running commentary of the whole game.
