Shawn Mendes is honoring his Portuguese heritage and his love of “the beautiful game” (soccer) as this year’s FIFA World Cup gets ready to kick off in Russia.
He has just released a new version of his song “In My Blood” which will serve as the official song for Portugal’s Football Team. Shawn’s dad is Portuguese (his mom is from Britain).
Portugal begins their tournament against Spain on Saturday.
“In the World Cup I’m always cheering for Portugal and Cristiano Ronaldo, who is my favorite player and probably one of my biggest inspirations.”
