Alisha Lehmann of Aston Villa faced criticism for wearing makeup after Switzerland’s 7-1 loss t Spain. Trolls targeted her with negative comments on Instagram, questioning the choice given the defeat.
However, Vicki Blomme from Nordic outlet C More defended Lehmann, drawing parallels with male players like Cristiano Ronaldo and David Beckham, who are celebrated for their stylish haircuts.
Blomme emphasized that makeup and personal grooming should be viewed similarly to male players’ choices in expressing themselves. She highlighted the importance of embracing diversity and individual expression in football.
Beckham and Ronaldo, known for their fashion and hairstyles, have influenced trends globally, showcasing how personal expression extends beyond the game. Lehmann’s upcoming match against West Ham in the WSL is an opportunity to shift focus back to her skills on the field, just as Ronaldo aims to add to his impressive goal tally against Iceland on the same day.
