Iceland Player Rúrik Gíslason Has Already Gained 330,000 Instagram Followers During World Cup
He may have only made a brief 30 minute appearance against Argentina on Saturday afternoon, but Iceland midfielder Rúrik Gíslason has already made a huge impact off the pitch.
Gíslason, who currently plays for Bundesliga side SV Sandhausen, has managed to pick up an impressive 330,000 followers on Instagram and it's quickly rising.
Imagine being so bloody good looking that your follower count goes from 30,000 to 362,000 after playing just half an hour of football at the World Cup.
Even my girlfriend dropped the bloke a follow, for god sake.
Gíslason is a model for Icelandic clothing company 66° North, according to Grapevine, and clearly a combination of his playing ability and good looks have grabbed the attention of thousands.
Fact: winger #Rúrik Gislason has such a mesmerising gaze that cornerflags, sports drinks and even goalie gloves have been known to fly towards him like he's some kinda messed up football Magneto.#WorldCup #SmiteTheWorld #FyrirÍsland #ForzaIslanda #AdoptIceland #Smite #ISL pic.twitter.com/Ec2e1ePhbt- Reykjavík Grapevine (@rvkgrapevine) June 11, 2018
