There's not much Shawn Mendes could do to anger fans... but when it comes to competitive sports, logic usually goes out the window.
So no matter how beloved Shawn is, when he chose his allegiance to Portugal as the 2018 World Cup kicks off, fans were PISSED!
Shawn showed support for the country in the best way possible: by recording a Portuguese version of his hit new single "In My Blood".
Brazilian fans weren't at all happy.
But Shawn has told Billboard in the past, "I follow Portugal and England because of my parents, who are from the two countries. In the World Cup, I’m always cheering for Portugal and Cristiano Ronaldo, who is my favourite player and probably one of my biggest inspirations."
So, we guess he is in his right to support that team!
