All of them … FIFA posted a series of photos of football stars in a cult look at Brazilian striker Ronaldo on Twitter. His appearance at the 2002 World Cup is remembered.
Summer break, soccer-free time: The best opportunity to stimulate their brain with a new haircut. If you look at the official account of the Football World Cup on Twitter, the biggest of them are apparently the same taste.
Lionel Messi (34), Cristiano Ronaldo (37), Neymar (30) or the son of former Bundesliga striker Hyung-Min (29): All of them in the published photos are reminiscent of storm legend Ronaldo, who only played with Brazil in 2002. Hair lines on his forehead for the world title in Japan and South Korea.
Ronaldo’s hairstyle reached cult status at the 2002 World Cup
Prior to the semi-final against Turkey, striker Herto styled to divert the local press from rumors of muscle problems.
“I asked my teammates if they liked it, but they did not, and it’s scary.
Ronaldo has been fit for two important games, scoring goals for Celica in both a 1-0 win over Turkey and a 2-0 win over Germany in the final. To the horror of their parents, especially the young Ronaldo fans copied the Ronaldo hairstyle, which revealed the national player last year, including nine-year-old Antonio Rudiger (29).
FIFA has been offering Ronaldo hairstyles to football stars since 2002
But what motivates the superstars to turn to Ronaldo for the cut? Nothing, if you look closely at Twitter. FIFA has been updating the special moments and experiences of the World Cup 20 years ago for several days – including the Ronaldo hairstyle.
The World Football Association’s social media team used the photo montage to give the iconic Ronaldo cut to various stars, sometimes better and sometimes worse on the forehead.
The combination of Ronaldo and his son “Sonaldo”, as Tottenham Hotspur’s Portuguese Twitter account aptly wrote, caused particular excitement.
The current boss of the South Korean superstar collected nearly 35,000 likes with the photo, 2,300 people shared the post and hundreds commented – some enjoyed, some were surprised.
Although Neymar or Bayern striker Eric Maxim Saubo-Moding (33) can definitely wear an unfamiliar haircut, the look of either Lionel Messi or Christian Pulisic (23) is very familiar.
Good to know: Currently, there is no doubt that designers with photo montages are inspired by the FIFA idea for the Winter World Cup in Qatar. Antonio Rudiger, while acknowledging his childhood sin, pointed out that another Ronaldo strip is not an option for him today. (bc)
