Famous Paraguay World Cup fan Larissa Riquelme has a new job. She and Mexican soccer player Cuauhtemoc Blanco will begin their acting careers on a new TV drama series in Mexico, according to Yahoo Eurosport.
The 37-year-old Blanco, who became the oldest goal-scorer in the 2010 World Cup, will be playing a fireman while still playing soccer for second division Irapuato.
"I know I'll be criticised, people will make fun of me, but I don't care," Blanco said. "I'll give it all my efforts and I know I'll come through."
Riquelme, who has kept quite busy during the past few months, became a soccer sensation during the World Cup when she promised to run nude through the streets if Paraguay won the tournament.
