The story of the World Cup so far (according to Rihanna)

Love the way you analyse, RiRi.

IMAGINE JOHN GILES was a 26-year-old Caribbean songstress who enjoyed a tweet now and then. Throw in Eamon Dunpny’s potty mouth and you’ve basically got Rihanna.

The superstar Good Girl Gone Bad has easily dominated the in-game Twittersphere during this year’s World Cup.

No wonder, because some of her insights and analysis were ‘disrespectfully’ good.

Here’s a quick (‘Pon de) replay of Brazil 2014; Rihanna’s World Cup.

RiRi missed the opening ceremony, but the less said about Pitbull the better

The Barbadian must have a thing for Group G, because it was World Cup silence from her until Portugal faced Ghana

On to the knockout stages then, but that Brazil-Chile shoot-out was too tense for more than single word reactions

The star of the show finally caught her eye later that night
