The World Cup is less than 30 days away. The Spanish edition of Vogue marked the occasion with a bold photo of soccer’s No. 1 power couple — Cristiano Ronaldo (going full nude) alongside girlfriend Irina Shayk — for its June cover. Ronaldo’s Blue Steel gaze is that of a confident man who knows that he is the best player in the world, haters be damned.
Let’s hope by the time the U.S. plays Portugal at the World Cup on June 22 American fans have worked their magic in photoshop with this image since it’s a tap-in or sitter when it comes to Internet-friendly parody.
