- WORLD CUP: NEYMAR SHOWS OFF NEW HAIRSTYLE IN RUSSIA
World’s most expensive player appears at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia with brand new hairstyle!
The Brazil and Paris Saint-Germain superstar showed off his new barnet in training ahead of the Samba Boys’ Group E opener against Switzerland. Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey went to Euro 2016 with Wales sporting blonde locks for his nation’s first major finals since 1958. And of course there was Paul Gascoigne’s bleached effort at Euro 96.
Despite the tradition of blonde hair at major tournaments, not everyone was impressed with his new look with some comparing it to a bowl of spaghetti. To be fair, as long as the Brazil No.10 performs in his second World Cup, who really cares?
After all, Neymar’s idol, Ronaldo De Lima Nazario, knows a thing or two about winning the World Cup with truly dreadful hair, having done so in 2002 when he was top scorer as the Selecao became the only nation to win the coveted tournament for a fifth time. The Paris St-Germain forward suffered a fractured metatarsal and sprained ankle against Real Madrid in February and has returned to full fitness in time for the World Cup. Brazil are in Group E alongside Switzerland, Costa Rica and Serbia.
