Is Germany looking at a must-win game over Spain on Sunday?

One of the best games of the group stage got even more enticing after Germany lost to Japan to open the tournament. And it's entirely plausible that Germany could be eliminated from World Cup contention with a loss to the Spaniards.

Can Germany get a result? Its World Cup hopes will likely depend on it. Here's what you need to know to bet Sunday's games. All odds are from BetMGM.

Group E standings
1. Spain, 3 points

1. Japan, 3 points

3. Germany, 0 points

4. Costa Rica, 0 points

Odds to win Group E
Spain (-300)

Japan (+350)

Germany (+650)

Costa Rica (+15000)

Odds to finish top 2 in Group E

Spain (-2500)

Japan (-275)

Germany (+130)

Costa Rica (+4000)

Japan vs. Costa Rica (over/under 2.5 goals)

5 a.m. ET Sunday, FS1

Japan to win (-225)

Costa Rica to win (+725)

Tie (+320)

Japan’s win over Germany would have been the upset of the first round of group stage games if it wasn’t for Saudi Arabia’s win over Argentina. Costa Rica, meanwhile, was blistered by Spain. A win puts Japan in a fantastic position to advance to the next round and we think that will happen.

Spain vs. Germany (2.5)

2 p.m. ET Sunday, FS1

Spain to win (+135)

Germany to win (+185)

Tie (+250)

If Japan wins or ties Costa Rica earlier in the day then Germany will be out of the World Cup with a loss. We’re a little surprised the over is at -145 and the under is at +100. We think this could be an especially cagey affair given the attacking talent on both teams. Our bold bet of the weekend is a parlay of the tie at +250 with the under at +100 if you can find a book that will offer that.

Group F standings
1. Belgium, 3 points

2. Croatia, 1 point

3. Morocco, 1 point

4. Canada, 0 points

Odds to win Group F
Belgium (-200)

Croatia (+275)

Morocco (+750)

Canada (+1100)

Odds to finish top 2 in Group F
Belgium (-900)

Croatia (-135)

Morocco (+160)

Canada (+240)

Belgium vs. Morocco (2.5)

8 a.m, ET Sunday, FS1

Belgium to win (+100)

Morocco to win (+310)

Tie (+225)

Belgium was on the back foot for much of the first half against Canada but a goal right before halftime was enough for the win. This is a tough Morocco side that could end up going through to the next round. We like the tie here.

Croatia vs. Canada (2.5)

11 a.m. ET Sunday, FS1

Croatia to win (+115)

Canada to win (+240)

Tie (+230)

Canada desperately needs a result to have a reasonable chance of advancing to the knockout rounds. We’re not sure they’re going to get it here. Croatia tied Morocco to start the World Cup and they could nick a goal or two. We’ll take under 2.5 goals at -135.

Germany have been let off the hook ahead of their Qatar 2022 World Cup matchday two game against Spain in Group E (5pm ET). After springing a huge surprise by beating the Die Mannschaft in the opening match of the group stages, Japan lost to Costa Rica in Sunday’s early kick-off, which tightens the group right back up. Had the Samurai Blue won against the Central Americans, they would’ve found themselves on six points, with the Germans on none ahead of the clash with Spain, who looked hugely impressive in the 7-0 rout of Los Ticos on Wednesday.

Hansi Flick’s side would realistically have had no chance but to beat Spain; a defeat would have sent them home, while in the case of a draw, they would have needed to defeat Costa Rica on matchday three, hoped Luis Enrique’s side lost to Japan and made up an eight-goal swing. Stranger things have happened in football, of course, but it would’ve been a big ask.

As it is, the victory for Costa Rica moves them level on three points with Spain and Japan, which leaves Germany three points off top spot with two matches left to play. Even if the Germans lose to Spain in the late kickoff on Sunday, they could overtake the Costa Ricans by defeating them (by enough goals) on matchday three, although they would also be dependent on the La Roja beating Japan that same day.

Only Brazil have won more World Cups than Germany
Along with Italy, Germany have won the World Cup four times; only Brazil (five) have won it more. They’ve finished as runners-up on a further four occasions but were eliminated in the group stages in Russia in 2018. The Germans have never failed to make it to the knockout rounds in consecutive tournaments.

Remaining fixtures in Qatar 2022 World Cup Group E

Ecuador was able to withstand the Netherlands, what will happen to the South American team at the 2022 Qatar World Cup


Ecuador persisted its robust begin to the World Cup, coming lower back from a purpose down to draw with the Netherlands, 1-1, at Khalifa International Stadium. The South American aspect equalized via Enner Valencia early in the 2nd 1/2 and took an vital step towards advancing out of the team stage.

Rapid Reaction
1. Tactical alternate from Ecuador can pay off
After enjoying with a again 4 to open the tournament, Ecuador made a most important tactical shift in how it set up in opposition to the Netherlands with Troyes centerback Jackson Porozo coming into the crew to substitute Romario Ibarra, who performed by and large on the left aspect of midfield in opposition to Qatar.

When the Netherlands scored simply six minutes in -- due to an errant again bypass from Brighton and Hove Albion's Moises Caicedo -- it regarded like the exchange would possibly have backfired however that wasn't the case. Outside of that moment, Ecuador managed the relaxation of the recreation and received the equalizer quickly after halftime.

There's no doubt Ecuador ought to sense properly about how it played, however to be as dominant as it was once and now not get the three factors feels like a overlooked opportunity. Now they may play the African champions, Senegal, wanting a win or draw to develop to the knockout stage for the 2d time in records and first time considering 2006.

This was once the Netherlands' least threatening assault in a recreation going again over a decade. Dating lower back to 2010, the Netherlands worst single-game Expected Goals (xG) output over 187 suits used to be 0.25, in accordance the TruMedia StatsPerform database. Only three instances has it dipped beneath 0.4.

Against Ecuador, they managed simply 0.07, a traditionally inept output for a crew that would not lack for attacking talent. Which brings us to Cody Gakpo. His elegant early end -- and 2d intention of the event -- saved the factor for Netherlands, giving the Dutch 4 factors via two games.

With Qatar up next, the Dutch need to have secure passage to the Round of sixteen after lacking the 2018 tournament, however it is difficult to envision a deep event run following this performance.

3. Golden Boot award watch for Enner Valencia
Who had Enner Valencia as their Golden Boot award pick? The Fenerbahce ahead scored the equalizer early in the 2nd half of and sits on three desires after two games, following his two-goal overall performance on the tournament's opening night. Five desires has been precise ample to win the Golden Boot at two of the closing 4 World Cups (2006 and 2010). It's nevertheless early, of course, however he is nicely on his way to turning into a legend returned domestic in South America.
Player scores (1= worst, 10= best)
Netherlands: A. Noppert 7, J. Timber 6, V. van Dijk 7, N. Ake 7, S. Bergwijn 5, C. Gakpo 7, D. Klaassen5, D. Blind 4, T. Koopmeiners 6, F. de Jong 6, D. Dumfries 6

He stepped up when it mattered, scoring a forty ninth minute aim to provide Ecuador an necessary point.

There's a lot of collective blame for how negative the Netherlands were, however Bergwijn getting pulled at halftime was once justified after he failed to discover a lot of the recreation in the first half.

Hervé Renard's stirring half time Hervé Renard's stirring half time speech which oversaw Saudi Arabia's revival against Argentina
The coach revitalised his team at the break
Saudi Arabia coach Hervé Renar gave one of the most rousing half time talks ever witnessed on camera at the World Cup. After his team went into the break one-nil down against Argentina thanks to a Lionel Messi penalty, Renard conjured all his might to give them the motivational message they so needed after their lackluster first half.

"What are we doing? Is this our way of pressing? What do you want: to take a picture with Messi? You have to press him because he has the ball and you just stare at him. Messi has the ball and you all stand still, looking at him. You have to press him, push him, if you want a photo, take out your phones. But you have to give everything, this is the World Cup," said Renard. The translator made sure the manager's message was effectively transmitted, his words equally rousing.

His motivational speech clearly had the desired effect as his team went on to perform a historic come back defeating World Cup favorites Argentina 2-1 on the night.

Renard has since explained his reaction. "At half-time I wasn't happy because we couldn't play the way we did in the first half," he said, before throwing Argentina a bone: "They're going to qualify, don't worry. What's more, they could be world champions"

Mexico vs. Argentina: Tri fans' mockery of Falklands War infuriates Argentinian fans
Tension mounts ahead of Saturday's clash at Lusail Stadium

On Wednesday, the aggression between Argentine and Mexican fans was physical during the Qatar 2022 World Cup. This Thursday's was verbal, but it hurt more than anything else to a fan of the Albiceleste, who said he could stand anything, except for them to mess with the Falklands, "aggression" that is part of the new battle cry of the Tricolor fans for the match to be held on Saturday at the Lusail Stadium.

Two days before the vital match between the teams of both countries in the 2022 World Cup to be played in Qatar, the fans are the ones who continue to heat up the match, which began on Wednesday in the streets with a fight, after which there were no arrests and no report from the local police.

This Thursday a video was released on social networks where Mexican fans in a truck chant "and you see, and you see, in the Falklands they speak English", referring to the Falklands War, the armed conflict between the South American country and England.

But an Argentina fan was present and got up annoyed and indignant, to tell the Mexicans that he puts up with anything but being made fun of like that. "No, no, not that. This is as far as we go, I allow you all of them, but not that one," said the fan of Argentina's national team.

The game between Mexicans and Argentines is of vital importance for both after their debut in Qatar 2022, where the Tricolor drew goalless against Poland, while Argentina was surprisingly beaten 2-1 by Saudi Arabia.

Thus, Saturday's game in front of 80,000 spectators takes on relevance, as a win for either team would be a big break towards the round of 16, but a loss for Argentina would be catastrophic and would eliminate them from the World Cup.

In the press conference following Brazil's victory over Serbia on Thursday, Tite assured that Neymar will continue in the World Cup, after he came on as a substitute in the 80th minute and upon arriving at the bench covered his face with his shirt and burst into tears while being attended to by the national team's doctors.

Ney was the target of the Serbian defense throughout the match, as he received nine of the 12 fouls called against Brazil, including a sweep by defender Nikola Milenkovic, who was not even cautioned and, in a reckless sweep, went wide and bent the PSG forward's right ankle with his knee in a nasty way.

Brazil's #10 immediately complained about his right ankle and the medical staff ordered him to leave the field without studs and socks.

Tite's optimism about Neymar's state of health
"He's going to continue in the World Cup, you can have that certainty. He felt the pain during the game, but decided to continue. It should be highlighted," Tite said.

However, the doctor of the 'Verdeamarelha', Rodrigo Lasmar, asked for 24 hours to see the evolution of Neymar's ankle and then be able to give a more accurate diagnosis: "We must be calm, it is early to say anything."

USMNT, Mexico, Canada and Costa Rica: Which CONCACAF team has the best odds in the remainder of Qatar 2022?
None of the four countries in this confederation got off to a winning start at the World Cup

CONCACAF definitely did not have a good start to the Qatar 2022 World Cup, as for the first time since South Africa 2010, none of the representatives of this Confederation managed to get a victory in their first game during this tournament.

First, the United States gave up an early lead to draw with Wales in Group B, a day later, Mexico could not beat a rocky Poland and drew goalless in Group C, the next day the story was much worse, first Spain humiliated Costa Rica, who took the worst drubbing so far in this competition by losing 7-0 in Group E and finally Canada suffered terrible refereeing decisions to fall 1-0 against the powerful Belgium in Group F.

Odds of CONCACAF teams for winning their Group
Obviously, because they earned at least one point in their debut, the odds of winning their group are higher for the USMNT and Mexico than for Canada and Costa Rica, but if we look at the odds of winning their group, we can see which country has an easier path to the Round of 16.

OnlyFans star Elle Brooke weighs in on BBC’s Qatar 2022 World Cup coverage

OnlyFans stunner Elle Brooke has had her say on the BBC's World Cup coverage as she criticised Jermaine Jenas for having a "vendetta" against Neymar - only to find it was actually Martin Keown

Adult icon Elle Brooke has had her say on the BBC's World Cup coverage as she mixed up two of the channel's commentators.

The OnlyFans star moaned that Jermaine Jenas had a "vendetta" against Brazil's star man Neymar during their game against Serbia last night (Thursday, November 24).

She wrote: "Not sure why Jermaine Jenas has such a vendetta against Neymar." But Elle soon realised her mistake, adding: "OMG hahaha it's Martin Keown. Why do they sound the same?"

Many of the adult star's fans were in agreement that it was an easy mistake to make.

One wrote: "Both boring and just say the most obvious things that we all already know as we could say it before they do ha."

A second added: "They all have the same constant drone! That's why haha."

While a third claimed: "Easy mistake to make tbh. Both very feminine voices."

Elle is a huge footie fan and is not shy in telling her followers about her love of Premier League champions Manchester City.

She recently divided fans by posting on Instagram in a series of skimpy pictures wearing nothing but red and blue lingerie and holding a banana. She asked: "Manchester is...?",57836529.html

Elle was clearly hinting for her followers to answer whether Manchester is red or blue with a nod to the huge rivalry between Manchester City and Manchester United.

It can after the OnlyFans siren shared a candid story about an embarrassing incident that happened during an X-rated act with an ex-boyfriend.

She revealed she once threw up her veggie McDonald's wrap and banana milkshake all over her boyfriend while the pair were getting down and dirty.

Speaking on The Blue Tick Show, she admitted: “I was vegetarian at the time and I had eaten a veggie wrap from McDonald's and a banana milkshake and I threw it all up over this guy.
“I remember it still being f***ing cold and this guy was just lay there and he was staring at it. There was chunder everywhere.”

And her fledgling boxing career shows no signs of slowing down as she told fans that one of her toenails fell off from training so hard in the ring.

She triumphed in her ring debut after beating Love Island star AJ Bunker earlier this year.


Brazilian mum to give hundreds of sad England fans free nudes if Brazil lift World Cup

EXCLUSIVE: Former cleaner turned racy model Mayara Lopes made a kinky promise to England's football fans if Brazil go on to lift their sixth World Cup in Qatar next month

It goes without saying that we all want the Three Lions to win the World Cup as we cheer them on against the USA later, but perhaps tournament favourites Brazil being victorious wouldn’t be such a bad thing after all…

Former cleaner Mayara Lopes, who hails from the small Brazilian city of Jacareí, made an eye-popping promise via the Daily Star after watching her nation beat Serbia 2-0 in their opening match in Qatar.

The single mum, 35, vowed to give away nudes to 1,000 footie fans, including fed up England supporters, if Brazil win the competition.

And she said her racy content will help ease the blow to English fans who suffered final heartbreak in the Euros last year.

Barely containing her excitement, she laughed: “I’m giving away 1,000 free subscriptions to my OnlyFans to spread some joy for those who will lose for us!

“So don’t be too disheartened England. And of course Brazilians will get the chance to claim those freebies too. The World Cup is such a special event for us. We’re the best in the world but most of our good players are sold to foreign teams so being able to see them all playing together for our country is amazing.

“The World Cup is so important to Brazilians that most employers will let you leave work early to watch the games with your friends and family, it’s literally a party for us. Since I was a little girl I’ve never missed a game.”

Mayara now lives in Florida, US, after making the gut-wrenching decision to abandon her son in Brazil to clean mansions abroad in America.

But she now gives her teenage son a “beautiful life” after ditching cleaning to regularly earn six figures on OnlyFans.

Before the Serbia clash she claimed her favourite player was Neymar Jr, but after the match an urgent text to the Daily Star read: “After watching the first game I want to add that Richarlison is definitely the new star! His second goal was spectacular.”
Mayara’s commitment to the Brazilian team was never in question – but she proved her incredible loyalty after the tragic death of her father. He died in a motorcycle accident the day before Brazil played Chile in June 2010.

And she remembered: “His funeral happened the next day and even though everyone was extremely sad, a lot of people from the funeral left and went next door to watch the game at a bar and came back after. Brazil won that day. At least something happened to make us a little less sad.”

She is now expecting Brazil to get their hands on the famous trophy for the first time in 20 years.

And as for the lucky fans who will get free access to her OnlyFans for a month, she teased: “My page is really spicy. They will get access to exclusive uncensored content and will be able to chat with me and have my X-rated content. Besides that I always go live on my page and it’s a great way to build a relationship with me.”

Mayara said once her beloved Brazil wins the final on December 18, she will post a free trial link on her Instagram page in what will be a first come first served approach.

As for how optimistic she is, the gorgeous mum concluded: “Brazilians are huge dreamers, so I am very confident Brazil is going to win this year. We’ve been waiting for the Hexa for too long. We deserve it. Also I’m really hopeful because Argentina started losing, and you know, we will always be rivals when the subject is soccer.”

Vamos Brasil!


Toyah Cordingley: Man arrested in India over Australia beach murder

A man has been arrested in India over the murder of a young woman found dead on a tropical northern Australian beach four years ago.

The body of Toyah Cordingley, 24, was discovered in October 2018 after what has been called a "frenzied and brutal and sadistic" attack.

Earlier this month the Queensland government put up a A$1m (£563,000; $676,487) reward for information.

It led to the arrest of Rajwinder Singh - the man accused of killing Toyah.

Queensland police said he was arrested in Delhi by Indian officers on Friday and was expected to face an extradition court hearing soon.

He will then be brought to Australia to face criminal proceedings.

"It was never a question of if, but when this day would come," Queensland police commissioner Katarina Carroll said. "I am very confident we have a strong case to put before the courts."

Mr Singh, who was working as a nurse, left behind his job, wife and their three children when he fled Australia hours after Toyah's body was discovered. He was pictured at Sydney's international airport.

Detectives have offered few details about how Toyah died. She had gone to Wangetti Beach, between the popular tourist hotspots of Cairns and Port Douglas, to walk her dog on 21 October 2018, but never came home. Her body was discovered by her father the next day, half buried in sand dunes.

Earlier this month Australian authorities appealed for the public's help in an international hunt to find Mr Singh.$/9


Originally from Buttar Kalan in the Indian state of Punjab, at the time of the killing he was living in Innisfail, about two hours from the crime scene.

Commissioner Carroll said she understood Mr Singh had been avoiding arrest in Punjab since he fled.

The Australian government sought an extradition order in March 2021 - something Indian officials agreed to last month. But they had been unable to locate the 38-year-old until now.

A detective from Queensland police has recently returned from India and Australian media report that five Queensland police officers who speak Hindi and Punjabi have been receiving information via WhatsApp.

When the A$1m reward was announced earlier this month, Toyah's father, Troy Cordingley said his daughter was " a young woman who will never get the chance to live a full life and all that entails… this was taken away from her".

"While justice will not bring Toyah back, justice is the very least that she deserves."

The reward is the highest ever offered in Queensland. Commissioner Carroll said that if it transpired that information which led to the arrest was eligible for the reward, she would "happily write out the cheque myself".

She praised cooperation with the Indian police, which she said had been "exceptional".

Queensland Police Minister Mark Ryan said the arrest had been "a long time coming".

"This is very early days in the next stage of delivering justice for Toyah," he said. "I know people are excited about this development and I know people are relieved."

World Cup Viewer’s Guide: Argentina, Messi look for rebound

DOHA, Qatar (AP) Lose and go home. That's the harsh fact facing Argentina as the team heads into its crucial World Cup match against Mexico.

Argentina arrived in Qatar as a favorite but suffered one of the biggest upsets in World Cup history with a 2-1 loss to Saudi Arabia in its opening match. Now Argentina is in danger of elimination Saturday, when anything but a win or draw would mean an early Group C knockout for the Albiceleste.

Argentina has only failed to advance out of the group stage twice in the last 60 years, in 1962 and 2002. And in what is likely Lionel Messi's fifth and final appearance on soccer's biggest stage, Argentina has become something of a laughingstock in Qatar.

''Where is Messi? We broke his eye!'' fans have been singing in Arabic, using a slang expression meaning to bring shame on a person.

''We always said we were going to look to win every game,'' said Messi, ''and now more than ever.''

The loss to Saudi Arabia was Argentina's fourth defeat in its last six World Cup matches, and also ended its 36-match unbeaten streak that stretched for more than three years.

Now goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez said Saturday's match against Mexico must be approached as its ''first World Cup final'' if Argentina wants to continue playing in Qatar.

''We're hurting a lot from our first defeat and on top of that at the World Cup,'' he said. ''We expected to play like it was a final, but we didn't do that. After we scored the first goal we relaxed a bit and we paid for that. Saturday will be our first World Cup final.''

Argentina has beaten Mexico in its last 10 meetings dating to the 2004 Copa America, and it won all three of its previous World Cup matches against Mexico at the World Cup, in 1930, 2006 and 2010.

Mexico, meanwhile, played to a 0-0 draw in its opening match against Poland. Mexico has failed to score in its last three World Cup matches - two losses and a draw - dating to group play in Russia in 2018.

Guillermo Ochoa saved a Robert Lewandowski penalty kick in the match against Poland and the 37-year-old goalkeeper, playing in his fifth World Cup, has never made it past the round of 16. Mexico has been knocked out in that round in its last seven appearances and last reached the quarterfinals in 1986 when it hosted the World Cup.

''Everything, I would trade everything to get to the quinto partido (fifth game),'' he said.

Mexico is coached by Gerardo Martino, who led his native Argentina from 2014 to 2016 until back-to-back losses in the Copa America final led him to quit.

''I know where I was born, the name of the hospital, the year and the characteristics of my city in Argentina, but I have to do the impossible for Mexico to win, I can't do anything else,'' Martino said.

Argentina coach Lionel Scaloni hadn't lost a match before the opening game defeat by Saudi Arabia.

''There is no other choice but to get up and move on,'' Scaloni said. ''They made us favorites, but in a World Cup these things can happen. You have to work on the aspects that didn't go well.''


Saudi Arabia was an overwhelming underdog and pulled off the upset against Argentina, and will again be the underdog Saturday against Poland.

Saudi Arabia has lost eight straight and nine of its last 10 World Cup matches against European teams. Included in that run was an 8-0 loss to Germany in 2002, a game forward Saleh Al Shehri said was too long ago to matter to this current squad.

''That was a defeat in the past,'' said Al Shehri. ''I think we, as a country, want to get back and go up to the top as a team. And I guess in the 20 years, we worked a lot, we worked hard. Now, in 2022, in Qatar, we made history, and there's still more to come.''

For Poland, star Robert Lewandowski is struggling to find the net and hasn't scored in his four previous World Cup matches on 11 shots and a failed penalty in a 0-0 draw against Mexico.

In fact, Poland attempted only six shots against Mexico and has now had six goalless draws in 35 World Cup matches.

''There's room for improvement going forward, we have to risk more,'' Lewandowski said. ''It's very hard for a forward to track so far back. But if the coach has these tactics, then we have to adjust. Of course, as a forward I wish for more of the ball.''


France overcame a slew of injuries - including the loss of striker and Ballon d'Or winner Karim Benzema with a thigh injury on the eve of the tournament - for an easy 4-1 defeat of Australia in its opening match.

The defending World Cup champions next play Denmark on Saturday and a win would push France through to the round of 16.

The victory over Australia made France the first reigning champion to win its opening World Cup match of a tournament since Brazil in 2006, but only four champions have won their opening two matches of a World Cup campaign.

France is trying to become the first team since Spain in 2010 to win six consecutive World Cup matches. Denmark, meanwhile, has drawn its last three matches including against Tunisia in its opening game.


Tunisia and Australia meet for just the third time in history, with the last match a 2-0 Tunisia victory in the 2005 Confederations Cup.

Tunisia has lost just one of its last 10 matches but opened the World Cup with a goalless draw against Denmark.

Australia had won five straight before France routed the Socceroos 4-1 in their opening match.

Australia coach Graham Arnold called France ''bigger, stronger and faster,'' but is confident his squad will be ready for Tunisia.

''We've got to be ready for that war,'' Arnold said. ''They are aggressive and they're going to have 40,000 fans behind them and it's going to be a truly amazing experience again for everyone.''

the preparations of a very glamorous England and USA WAG squad ahead of Friday’s game.

England are set to take on their US counterparts in their 2d conflict of the World Cup on Friday.

The match, which will kick off at the Al Bayt Stadium in Al Khor at 7pm GMT (2pm ET), comes after England's dramatic 6-2 victory over Iran on Monday - and the US's 1-1 draw with Wales a few hours later.

Between matches, England's glamorous WAGs have been sharing snaps of themselves enjoyable on the £1billion luxurious cruise liner they are calling domestic for the tournament, best for poolside selfies and a cocktail or two.

Sexy model who earns £50k a month brands latest crop of England WAGs ‘boring’

An adult content creator, who makes over £50,000 a month, has vowed to gift her subscribers free racy pictures during the first knockout game if England qualifies.

Blonde bombshell Bonnie Brown has an army of football followers – and since the World Cup began her inbox has exploded with footie-related requests.

The 25-year-old, from Leicester, posts her saucy snaps primarily on Fanvue but also uses social media platforms including Instagram and Twitch.

The model joined the X-rated platform at the start of 2022 – because she was tired of living pay cheque to pay cheque in her minimum wage job.

Now with thousands of loyal followers behind her, Bonnie gets to be her own boss, sharing the content she loves.































Speaking to Daily Star, Bonnie said: “The type of content I post is fairly mixed.

"I have my football fanbase, so a lot of me trying on football shirts and stuff but I also have a big gaming audience, so lots of me online.

“Usually, I do transitions of me from wearing my Leicester shirt to something sexy like underwear or a bikini which gets thousands of views.

“I've had a massive surge in football shirt requests in the past couple of weeks. I did an England shirt try-on the other day.

“Then of course underwear, and bikini stuff. Then there's obviously the more personalised requests too.

“I recently bought my dream car which is a Porsche 911. So there were lots of ‘Bonnie on the Bonnet requests’! That was really fun”.

The Leicester City supporter has been a footie fan since she was a young girl and credits her love for the game to her dad.

“My Dad got me into it. He's a big Leicester fan and I'm mad for them too”, the model added.

“I go to games and post a lot of content of me wearing Leicester shirts. I've got at least 10! A lot of my followers are Foxes fans too."

Bonnie blasted the latest crop of football WAGs (wives and girlfriends) - claiming that they are boring.

She explained: “It's just not the same these days, is it? No gossip, no leaked photos of them sunbathing topless or getting caught rolling out of nightclubs at 3am.

“It's the same for this current England team I suppose! Obviously, as a Leicester fan, Rebekah Vardy and Coleen were pretty wild, but that's about it. Plus letting loose in Qatar doesn't look likely.

“There are loads but it has to be the originals like Cheryl, or VB. They got more attention than the team most of the time, and rightly so as England was useless before Southgate became manager. It's not the same anymore!”

When asked what she thinks makes a good ‘WAG’, Bonnie said: “Well the support comes first. Being in the stands supporting your man and cheering them on and being there for them win or lose.

“Obviously when England wasn't very good the WAGs did a good job of keeping the focus on them as much as the players. I'm not sure what Gareth's rules are on support in the bedroom whilst at a tournament but being there for them emotionally is important.”

Farmer’s wife sells sexy snaps to keep loneliness at bay when husband’s away

Living on a farm can be lonely so one woman turned to OnlyFans to keep her company.

Honeyy Brooks is a down-to-earth wife and mum out on the farm in rural Victoria, Australia, but country life is only a part of the world that she resides in to keep her fulfilled.

With her husband away on a fly-in fly-out (FIFO) job, the blonde bombshell not only takes care of family and farm duties but also has a thriving career as an OnlyFans star.

Honeyy sits perched among the top 0.3% of content creators in the world and she knows all about hard work.

When the jaw-dropping blonde beauty isn’t fulfilling fans’ fantasies as a bodacious onscreen goddess, she’s looking after her family’s lively farm.

“I’m an active mum and wife to a husband that works away for two weeks at a time, so my life is non-stop these days,” she says.
































“Our farm keeps me busy with cows, sheep, goats, chooks, dogs and cats roaming around on expansive land, but the money we make farming is just enough to live on, which is why I supplement our income with OnlyFans.

“It can get very lonely for this mumma, so I spend my spare time getting to know my fans better.”

It also doesn’t hurt that she makes £8,500 a week selling raunchy content.

Honeyy explained their growing farmstead “is only hobby farming at this stage, as we still love to travel a lot” – and pays for the grounds’ upkeep, livestock and supplemental feed with her OnlyFans cash.

The busy mum is passionate about her job and contributions to the sex work industry.

She also loves making her fans happy with plenty of original creative content.

Honeyy offers fresh new content every week with her favourite creators as well as multiple nude uploads daily, live sexting every night, live one-on-one calls, daily behind the scenes stories, plus games, prizes and freebies.

“I am proud to say I do it all: raising kids, feeding livestock and selling sexy content online. And I wouldn’t have it any other way,” she continued.

“Let’s change the stigma around sex work; I do what I do because I love it - not because I ‘have’ to.”

Honeyy has a TikTok account where she often deals with questions from trolls about her work.

She’s had people tell her that OnlyFans isn’t a “real job” and she needs “self-respect”.

Thankfully she doesn’t let the hateful comments get to her as she is chuffed to be doing what she loves.

When not down on the farm or online with fans, Honeyy spends her downtime riding horses and motorbikes, outback exploration and travelling in a caravan around Australia.

She and her family recently embarked upon a 12-month excursion living on the road, and look forward to their next adventure.
