Shawn Mendes reworks In My Blood as Portuguese World Cup anthem

Shawn Mendes has revamped his In My Blood single for Portugal’s official 2018 FIFA World Cup anthem.
The new version, which features lyrics sung in Portuguese, was recorded to inspire the national team’s players and their fans.
Mendes is the son of a Portuguese immigrant from the Algarve town of Lagos.
“I follow Portugal and England because of my parents, who are from the two countries,” the singer, who played soccer as a child, tells Billboard. “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.”
Portugal’s 2018 World Cup campaign begins in Russia against neighbours Spain on Friday (15Jun18).
