Iceland’s dreams of a Euro 2016 victory may have been crushed in Paris last night but Icelandic footballer Ari Freyr Skúlason still had something to smile about when he was greeted by his cherub of a daughter after the final whistle.

Baby Camilla, who might just be the most adorable football fan to ever grace the Stade de France, was the just the right girl to console her dad following the devastating quarter-final defeat.

Baby Camilla was the just the right girl to console her dad following the devastating quarter-final defeat.

Donning her Iceland kit and pink noise protection headphones, which only served to accentuate her chubby cheeks, the baby was taken into the arms of her father in front of more than 81,000 fans last night.

Iceland may be heading home without the trophy, but Camilla has amassed hundreds of fans following her Euro 2016 debut. According to Turkish media, the baby has been christened ‘Yanakson’, which translates as Cheekson, a play on her talented dad’s surname.

Camilla might have irresistible baby cheeks, but in the hair stakes, nothing rivals seven-month-old Gracie, the daughter of Shay Given, who also shined at this year’s Euros.

The tot’s gorgeous long locks evoked much envy last month, when she was pictured enjoying a well-deserved baby break in France with her parents.
