Enrique Iglesias is warming up for Euro 2008, the tournament that reunites the best soccer teams in Europe. The Spanish singer will not be kicking the ball around though, he will perform “Can You Hear Me?” at the event’s closing ceremony.

Enrique inherited his passion for soccer from his dad, Spanish balladeer Julio Iglesias, who was a goalie for Real Madrid. It’s in his blood!
