IMAGES: The top 10 sexiest NATIONS!
MSN UK has launched a list of countries with the best lookers in the world. Here it is!
With the Euro 2012 football championship underway and the Olympics coming up next month, website MSN UK has offered up a list of the 'sexiest' countries from across the globe.
In the following pages, we bring you their findings, alongside some of each nation's hottest citizens -- plus, get to see how India fared!
Working our way up from the bottom, we have the United States in tenth place. The website describes Americans as 'a friendly and diverse bunch' -- and let's not forget that it's also the birthplace of some of the world's most beautiful women, such as supermodels Kate Upton and Marisa Miller!

Aside from the fact that the country has given us the likes of Claudia Schiffer and Heidi Klum, Germany also makes it to the ninth spot in the poll because of its 'tasty sausages' and the fact that 'its countrymen are good with their money', according to MSN UK.

'Charming and well-dressed' Britishers nabbed third place in the MSN UK list -- you could call it favouritism, but the sight of an English rose like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley will dispel any doubt!
