Rihanna Gets World Cup Final Fever! See The Singer's Selfie Spree

14 July 2014 by

Forget Gary Lineker and Thierry Henry, our favourite World Cup 2014 coverage came from none other than Rihanna. The singer's been live-tweeting the whole event, but went full-on football crazy during the final. 

Rih headed to Brazil to watch the Germany vs Argentina game last night. After spending a day hanging out with Brazilian football legend Pele, she was one of a number of VIPs hanging out at the last match of the tournament. While Adriana Lima and Giselle shared snaps of themselves looking glam as they watched the game, the 'We Found Love' singer sported an sports-luxe wardrobe of a bucket hat, a Trapstar Red Line oversized shirt exclusive to Harvey Nichols and Le Specs 'Hey Macarena' sunglasses for the event. 

As well as posting match commentary and selfies from the game she also changed her avatar to a photoshopped picture of herself wearing a swimsuit in the colours of the German flag. Yup, Rih might have deleted Instagram last month, but she's certainly still on Twitter. And her World Cup coverage on the site was blimmin' brilliant. 

Highlights included match commentary like 'Argentina's counter attack is SICK!!!' and 'Mueller is always in the right position!'. There was also a collage of photos of fans lifting their tops over their heads (including one of herself) and pictures of herself with the 'Man of the Match' trophy and with the ACTUAL WORLD CUP TROPHY.

'I touched the cup,' she wrote. 'Held the cup, kissed the cup, took a selfie wit the cup!!! I meeeaan...... what is YO bucket list looking like bruh?'

What's next for Rihanna? We think it's pretty realistic to hope she records the official single for the 2018 World Cup - maybe a collab with David Beckham... (okay wishful thinking). Maybe she could be enlisted to join Lineker in the studio as a commentator or become the new England manager. PLEASE.
