6 Zlatan Ibrahimovic (58.4 Million)
Throughout the course of a 20-year international career, Ibrahimovic is one of just eleven players who have made 100 or more appearances for the Sweden national team. With 62 goals, he holds the record for most goals scored in a nation. He competed for Sweden in 2004, 2008, 2012, and 2016 UEFA European Championships in addition to the 2002 and 2006 FIFA World Cups.
He received the Swedish player of the year award, Guldbollen (the Golden Ball), a record 12 times, including 10 times in a row from 2007 to 2016. Ibrahimovi's 35-yard bicycle kick goal against England for Sweden received the 2013 FIFA Puskás Award and is frequently cited as one of the all-time greats.
Despite being 41 years old and having 58.4 million followers, Ibrahimovic just can't help but use Instagram to display his incredible talent (and ego).
Then there is Zlatan, and then there is confidence.
7 Paul Pogba (57.6 Million)
Pogba should be included on this list since he looks to have spent more time on social media self-promotion than playing football for his previous teams.
Adidas, a provider of athletic apparel and equipment, supports Pogba. Together with other Adidas-affiliated athletes including David Beckham, Lionel Messi, and Mohamed Salah, as well as American musician Pharrell Williams, he made an appearance in an Adidas 2018 World Cup advertisement.
Pogba's goal celebration, known as "the Dab," initially appeared in the FIFA video game series from EA Sports in FIFA 17.
Pogba attended the 2017 MTV Europe Music Awards in London alongside his brothers Florentin and Mathias. Paul and English actress Natalie Dormer gave Shawn Mendes, a Canadian musician, the "Best Song" award.
Interestingly, after returning to Juventus from Manchester United during the summer, the French international anticipates increasing his 57.6 million Instagram followers.
