FUSSBALL: WM 2002 in JAPAN und KOREA
Love the smile, hate the hair

That triangle. That infernal triangle.

Ronaldo stole the headlines in the 2002 World Cup for his goalscoring exploits - those 8 goals forming the central arc of a truly inspirational story of redemption - but he also left the entire world befuddled with his choice of hairstyle whilst he went about playing the role of a textbook Champion.

He was, of course, asked about this later on... some version of 'what the hell were you thinking Ronnie?'... and he answered: "My groin was hurting,” he told ESPN Brazil. “I was only at 60%. So I shaved my head. Everybody was only talking about my injury. When I arrived in training with this haircut everybody stopped talking about the injury.”

Bloody genius.
