Oakland Raiders cheerleaders visit Wembley as London gears up for NFL International Series

The Raiders' cheerleaders – the Raiderettes – visited the home of the England team to promote the NFL International Series.

Despite jetting over from America, the dancers hold down full-time jobs outside of the game.

Among the stunning group of girls are nurses, paralegals, theme park performers, school teachers, food bloggers, mental health therapists and advertising executives.

But they are ditching their day jobs to put on their best show for NFL fans this Sunday.

All except the travelling teachers, that is, who look in their element as they instruct a classroom full of school children how to perform a successful cheer.

The Raiderettes look to have caught the UK bug as pictures show them posing with the Union Jack flags and footballs.

Raiders kick off the series against the Seahawks looking to put their London misery behind them following their 2014 defeat to the Miami Dolphins.

The Los Angeles Chargers take on the Tennessee Titans next Sunday, and the Jacksonville Jaguars complete the series against the Philadelphia Eagles the following weekend.

The Raiders are 30th out of 32 in the league and the Seahawks are 19th, so both clubs could do with a bit of extra cheer right now.

And the Raiderettes will be up against it to get the best out of their team, with the Seahawks entering the game after impressive wins against the Arizona Cardinals and Dallas Cowboys.

The Raiders, on the other hand, have won just once all season against the Cleveland Browns.

Wembley is playing host to the clashes due to delays to Tottenham's new stadium.

Tickets cost up to a huge £156-per-game.
