Paige Spiranac posts hat-trick of World Cup pics, sends fans into raptures

Paige Spiranac sent her followers into raptures today after posting a hat-trick of social media pics asking fans who they will be rooting for at the 2022 World Cup. 

Social media sensation Spiranac has 3.7 million followers on Instagram, which is even more than the GOAT himself Tiger Woods, who has 3 million. 

"World Cup! Who are you rooting for?" Spiranac captioned her latest post featuring three pics of her wearing a USA top. 

Paige was born in Colorado and played Division 1 college golf at University of Arizona and San Diego State University.

The 2022 World Cup is set to be the most controversial of all time in the tournament's 92-year history with it being staged in Qatar. 

Controversy has surrounded this year's World Cup as a result of Qatar's poor treatment of migrant works, poor human rights record, persecution of LGBT people, among others. 

This has led to allegations of sportswashing, just as we have seen with the Saudi-bankrolled LIV Golf Tour in 2022. 

It will be the first World Cup to be held in the Arab world, and the tournament will run from November 20 through to the final on December 18. 

Spiranac's United States are huge outsiders to win the World Cup for the first time in their history in December.

Her nation has never previously even reached a World Cup final. The furthest the United States have ever progressed in a World Cup was third place, and that was in the very first World Cup in 1930. 

They have competed in 10 World Cups through the years. 

USA have been drawn against England, Wales and Iran in their opening group, where the top two teams progress into the knockout stage.

It's fair to say Spiranac certainly prefers the USA top she is wearing above to the actual 2022 USA World Cup shirt. 

She's really not a fan: 

Brazil are tournament favourites to lift the World Cup for a record sixth time, while Argentina are second favourites as football legend Leo Messi bids to win it for the first time in his career. 

Other strong contenders to win the World Cup include France, Germany and England. 

Spiranac also posted a hilarious video of her having "audio issues" earlier this week: 

It's fair to say the video went down well with her fans having received more than 100,000 likes on the post. 

She also took to Twitter this week to jump on the "if it shut down" bandwagon: 

PGA Tour star Max Homa recently joked he was going to make a calendar filled with saucy snaps like Spiranac after he reacted to our latest graphic on social media. 

GolfMagic threw up a post on social media showing the most followed people in golf on Instagram

When we posted the graphic, Paige reacted by joking: "This just in. Men like golf and boobs."
