With the World Cup now in full swing, we have seen plenty of shock results, with some surprisingly impressive performances by teams and players, as well as some surprisingly poor ones. Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo was one of the players expected to light up World Cup 2014 but he struggled through Portugal's opening game defeat against Germany, which saw his side lose 4-0.
It has been claimed that Cristiano Ronaldo is still carrying a knee injury and some doctors have even claimed that he could be risking his career by playing on through the pain, which could be the cause for his average performance. However, we have come to our own conclusion as to why Cristiano Ronaldo failed to impress during his first World Cup 2014 match, and that is because his girlfriend Irina Shayk was not there to cheer him on.
While a lot of the WAG's are in Brazil to cheer on their men, Irina Shayk is currently in America, where she is putting her own career ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo. While Portugal were losing to Germany, Irina was seen hailing a taxi in New York, where she currently has plenty of career commitments. It is not only her modelling work that Shayk has to focus on either.
Irina Shayk is one of the many models to try her hand at acting and will appear in her acting debut Hercules in a few weeks time. Hercules sees Irina Shayk star alongside Dwayne Johnson, and the movie will hit the big screen on July 25 in both the US and the UK. We wonder whether Cristiano Ronaldo will take time out of his career to support Irina Shayk and watch Hercules.
