Euro 2016: Top Five Best Player HaircutsPublished June 17, 2016
Euro 2016 has so far had plenty of talking points.
Goals, unexpected results, big name flops, you name it, the European Championships has certainly delivered so far.
In the midst of such an intriguing tournament, there is one thing that has gone somewhat under the radar in France so far. The hairstyles.
Footballers are known for their rather bizarre and standout hair do’s, and what better way to increase your profile then by saving your most bold haircut for when the whole world is watching at a major tournament.
With that in mind, we at Free Bets, pick five “stand-out” hairstyles currently sported by players at the France showpiece.
Paul Pogba (France)
The Juventus midfielder is known for his wacky dos but maybe the 23-year-old saved his boldest cut for the Euros.
The right-hand side of his head was dyed yellow in the style of the Gallic rooster which is featured on the French badge.
Aaron Ramsey (Wales)
Will the real Aaron Ramsey please stand up? The Arsenal midfielder’s new hairstyle must have been inspired by Eminem, or maybe Ellen DeGeneres, either way, this is one for the photo album.
Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal)
The Real Madrid superstar’s haircut against Iceland on Tuesday, hit the headlines for all the right reasons.
The self-proclaimed greatest of his generation had two lines shaved into the back of his head in solidarity with a sick child.
The story runs that Ronaldo has reportedly paid for the medical treatment of a young boy with cancer in Portugal.
During his treatment the boy was reportedly left with two scars. Ronaldo thus shaved two lines in his head to show his support.
Marek Hamsik (Slovakia)
There aren’t many words to describe the Slovakia superstar’s new hairdo. The 28-year-old has become synonymous with the mohawk during his time at Napoli, but the forward really has gone all out at this summer’s tournament.
Marouane Fellaini (Belgium)
Marouane Fellaini’s afro has been a familiar sight in English football since his move to Everton in 2008, but the Manchester United midfielder has changed it up for Euro 2016 with his frizzy locks receiving the blonde-dye treatment.
The original Annie has now been found! It was Marouane all along.
