YESSSSSS RONALDO XD! Ahh, I love soccer! I’m watching the Euro 2020 (European championships)! Anyone else? I need a footy pal!

@Addie @ Alaina

So, football (soccer) people and teams need money to run, so they have sponsors. They are advertised though different things, whether it is adds, bottles etc. And there is this super famous soccer player called Ronaldo, and in a press conference, he moved two of those bottles, which advertised Coca Cola. Because of that, the value of Cola Cola has gone down $4 billion! From $442 billion to $438 billion!

@Mirela J

Wow...I can't imagine having that much influence. I never really like Coco-Cola.
