Extra Time: Snoop Dogg appreciates Ronaldo's 'pretty' hairstyles

The artist calls the former Brazil striker the most dynamic player he's seen, before complimenting his differing barnets - but admits that American football is still his No.1

Rapper Snoop Dogg has revealed his appreciation for Brazil legend Ronaldo.

The hip-hop legend - who has recently 'reincarnated' himself as Snoop Lion - was speaking at a promotional event for the new Fifa 2013 video game on Monday night when asked about his favorite football player.

"That's Ronaldo from Brazil from back in the day," he told Goal.com. "When I first started watching soccer, going to Europe for the first time, he was the one who was the most dynamic to me. I loved the way he played. He played with a lot of style, he was good and he had the different hairstyles. His hair was pretty."

Snoop currently keeps tabs on the USA national team.

He participated in a charity flag football game with women's star Hope Solo earlier this year and was impressed by the Olympic gold medal-winning goalkeeper's attitude.

"She's a rider," he said. "I played with her in a celebrity flag game and she's tough. I know she's tough on that soccer field because she was tough in that flag game and we were playing insane."

But, while Snoop is a fan of soccer, it appears that his heart will always be with American football. The 'Gin and Juice' rapper has a charity called the Snoop Youth Football League, which brings inner-city youngsters onto the field to help them learn life values.
