(PIX11) — This stunning teen caught the world’s attention at the World Cup while cheering for Belgium — so much attention, in fact, that L’Oreal has offered her a modeling deal.

17-year-old Axelle Despiegelaere was just planning on cheering for the Belgian team at the World Cup, a once-in-a-lifetime experience in itself.

At the Belgium vs. Russia game on June 22, photographers captured her smiling face and within hours, her photo was circulating around the world.

Four days after her photos went viral, she set up her own Facebook page, which now has 17,000 (and counting) fans.

On Tuesday, Despiegelaere announced she has signed a contract with L’Oreal.

She has already made a video with the company promoting some of their products.
