The 2018 FIFA World Cup is on! It’s great to see countries all over the world coming together, united in the game of soccer. Shawn Mendes loves his World Cup team Portugal!

Shawn’s parents immigrated to Canada from England and Portugal.

In an interview with Billboard, Shawn says: “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.”

The team wanted In My Blood to be their official World Cup Anthem, and Shawn recoded a new version of the song in Portuguese! This sounds so good!
