A boy’s World Cup haircut paying tribute to his favorite footballer has resulted in him being expelled from school.

Alfie Ransom, 12, asked his mother to shave his head but leave a tuft of fringes à la Ronaldo.

The distinctive haircut was sported by the Brazilian legend during the 2002 World Cup final and has become one of the defining images of his remarkable career.

Alfie, from Hull, asked mum Emma Shaw to let him do the same for this year’s World Cup.

She relented after England’s win on Monday – but the makeover didn’t seem to impress staff at Sirius West Academy.

Emma, ​​32, claims she was called by school staff on Wednesday to say her son was being sent home for breaking school rules.

She said: “Schools today are about accepting people for who they are and encouraging people to be unique and be themselves. how is that different

“Ever since I was a kid, there were always trends in what pop stars and celebrities were doing – we were crazy about the stars.

“Alfie’s friends loved the haircut and it made Alfie really happy and confident.

She said she was unsure whether to comply with the order.

Ronaldo revealed why he got the unusual cut last year and even apologized for the trouble parents have caused with children who have wanted to emulate it over the years.
