What you’re looking at here is the work of a Russian artist by the name of Daira Isaeva, who spends her free time sketching these amazing pencil drawings of football’s great and good.

When she’s not busy working as a social media editor for a Russian sport website, the 19-year-old Arsenal fan likes to unwind by knocking out portraits of her favourite players.

“I was always obsessed with football and I also had some skills in art,” she told Metro.

“So two years ago I decided to draw footballers – the people that inspire me.”

These are the results, and they’re rather bloody good.

Gianluigi Buffon…

David De Gea…

David Silva…

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain…

Just so you’re aware, there are loads more portraits to peruse on Daria’s Twitter and Instagram pages if you’re hankering for drawings of Francis Coquelin and the like!
