Real Madrid and Portugal star pays homage to sick child ahead of Portugal vs United States World Cup clash.

It seems those people could not be further from the truth.
Apparently the reason he had this new hair-cut relates to the 29 year old’s relationship with a young fan with a serious medical condition, the tweet below explains more in detail.
