Mario Balotelli shows off flashy new haircut

If there’s on thing that’s certain in world football, it’s that Mario Balotelli will never stop fascinating us in new and different ways. Today, he showed off what can only be described as an intersting new hair cut.

That had to have taken at least an hour. Just look at the details. That’s some serious hair dedication.

You do you, Mario. We’ll keep admiring it.

Lionel Messi continues trend of questionable fashion decisions


Oh, Lionel Messi. It’s possible we at the FOX Soccer Blog just aren’t fashion-forward enough to understand what’s going on here. Or, perhaps whatever deity blessed you with the uncanny ability with a football neglected your sense of fashion.

Not a bad trade, in our opinion, but this latest ensemble has us wavering. Messi received his 2013 Golden Boot award on Tuesday, donning a jacket that looked more like it belonged on a washed-up rock star than a transcendent soccer god.


Now, we’re all prone to the occasional fashion disaster, but Messi seems to have made a habit of iffy choices. For example:


Messi rocked this polka-dot number earlier this year to the Ballon d’Or presentation.


A year prior, Messi opted to go with a softer look … ensconcing himself in velvet.

But it’s not all bad for the Argentine wonder. He got it right in 2011 when collecting the second of his many Ballon d’Or trophies.


Not too shabby, Leo. There’s still some hope.

Beckham to wear commemorative boots in final home match

Style has never been a problem for David Beckham.

On the eve of his final home match as a professional soccer player, Beckham announced he will be lacing up these custom boots for Paris Saint-Germain’s match against Brestois. He has partnered up with adidas to create these and it’s clear that they are carrying some signature Beckham style.

Beckham announced his decision on Facebook stating:

I wanted to show the passion I had playing for my country and the pride that gave me during my career. You also see the names of Victoria and the kids which have always been there on my boots.”


A touching tribute from a true family man.


What were you doing when you were 10 years old? Probably not starring in a global fashion campaign, we’d guess.

But, when your father is an international icon — both on and off the soccer pitch — you are bound for a life in the spotlight. And it looks like Romeo Beckham is soaking it all up. Check him out hamming it up — and looking completely adorable — in Burberry’s spring and summer collection. He’s certainly following in his dad’s footsteps in the fashion world! But what we really want to know: will he do the same on the field?
