Madrid: Colombian singer Shakira has said that she never misses a match where her boyfriend, Spanish soccer star Gerard Pique, is playing.
Aware of the "dedication, commitment, discipline and teamwork" needed to play professional soccer, the vocalist said in an interview with the website FIFA.com that she gives Pique her support in every way he needs. "It can't be easy having a performer as a partner either!" she laughed.
Pique plays professionally for FC Barcelona and is a member of Spain's national team.
