His football career came to an end in 2016, but he has resurfaced from time to time since then.

Most notably when he made an appearance at Lip Sync Portugal two years ago.

In 2010, Liverpool brought Raul Meirels from Porto to the Premier League for £11.5 million.

He scored several impressive goals for the Reds, including a Merseyside derby strike against Everton.

Amazingly he was awarded the PFA Fans Player of the Year award for the Premier League – an hour that has been won by the likes of Harry Kane, Mo Salah and Eden Hazard.

Despite his popularity on Cope, he left for new pastures on August Deadline Day in 2012.

After failing to sign Luka Modric, Chelsea bounced for Miracles – paying £12m to bring him to Stamford Bridge.

Throughout his one year in West London he helped the Blues win the FA Cup and Champions League double – featuring from the bench in the former’s final.

A few appearances at the start of the next season would follow, before Meirels moved into the final days of the transfer window to run for the third season.

He joined Fenerbahce for £8m – playing the last four years of his playing career with the Turkish giants.

His tattoos were displayed in Chelsea, but they came out reasonably fresh, with a minimal amount of shaved hair and no beard.

But at Fenerbahce his beard grew too big, and he kept his facial hair well beyond his playing days.

In Turkey, he kept his blond hair closed.

But in 2019 Lip Sync Battle, he appeared with his trademark beard with a full head of black hair.

Virtually his entire chest is covered with tattoos, as well as his arms and back.

Now 38-year-old Meirels played 73 times for Portugal between 2006 and 2014.

And on Lip Sync Battle he performed a song by Portuguese artist Antonio Veriacos – receiving positive comments.
