If you’re after an alternative countdown to this summer’s World Cup, then look no further. The 2014 babes calendar is here.

Created by American photographer Tim Tadder, the calendar features beautiful models showing off their skills around Brazil.

Twelve stadiums have been digitally integrated with some of the South American country’s most stunning scenery to create the backdrops for each image.

This explores the idea of football being at the heart of Brazilian life, the people who live there and among the country’s vast landscape.

Tadder travelled around Brazil to capture the stadiums and scenery before his colleague, Mike Campau, blended in pictures of the models pulling off tricks, flicks and bicycle kicks.

With the girls each sporting the colours of a qualified nation, the result is an eye-catching set of images which are sure to get viewers even more excited about this summer’s football extravaganza.
