Footie fan turned L’Oreal model

Belgium may have been knocked out of the World Cup, but one of its supporters is still in the world's spotlight.

Red Devils fan Axelle Despiegelaere was snapped while supporting her country during the group stages of the championship in Brazil. Pictures of the 17-year-old cheering on Belgium, clad in her national team's colours of red, black and yellow and wearing a horned hat, soon went viral on Twitter, reported the Daily Mirror.

Upon her return to Belgium and riding a wave of popularity, Miss Despiegelaere started a Facebook page that garnered more than 229,000 followers in just over a week.

She has since been offered a modelling contract by global cosmetics brand L'Oreal.
