Two things Shawn Mendes loves: his Portuguese heritage and soccer.
A new version of “In My Blood” has been released as it will serve as the official song for Portugal’s Football Team and Shawn sings in Portuguese for the first time in the new version of the track.
The new part of the chorus translates to, “I will believe/That we are going to make it/That we are going conquer/We are Portugal/A single voice and heart.”

Because of his heritage, he follows Portugal and England but Mendes says Cristiano Ronaldo is his favorite player and one of his biggest inspirations.
Vamos, família! Força Portugal! 🇵🇹 ⚽️ ❤️❤️ @selecaoportugal
