The World Cup was meant to be a shop window for Belgium’s young stars to showcase their abilities to the globe’s top clubs.

Instead, a Belgium fan deflected the attention away from the pitch as she donned the red, yellow and black to support her nation against Russia during the group stage.

Snaps of Axelle Despiegelaere flooded the internet as hoards of social media users coveted her beauty – prompting French cosmetics company L’Oreal to make an approach for the 17-year-old during the summer transfer window.

On Tuesday, Axelle announced on her Facebook page that she had penned a deal with the company and revealed she had already filmed a promotional video for the brand.

Belgium crashed out of the World Cup in the quarter-finals, but it’s unlikely the model will be too disappointed given her new found fame.
