Nacer, who plays for Tottenham Hotspur and Belgium tells Cosmo
: "As a footballer, my body’s my tool – so I have to take care of it, and I’m pretty happy with the way I look and what my body is capable of – sometimes I’d like more muscle or bigger legs, but you can never be perfect. My weakness is definitely chocolate – Belgian obviously.
"I’ve never posed naked before, but I’m not nervous – maybe I should wait and see what the reaction’s like! It’s an important cause – cancer affects lots of families, so I hope it gets people talking," he says of his decision to pose for the magazine.
