Larissa Riquelme stars in TV drama with Mexico striker Cuauhtemoc Blanco

Blanco plays a fireman. Wouldn’t like to guess what Larissa’s doing


Elderly striker Cuauhtemoc (copy & paste saves the day!) Blanco shot to international fame this summer as the oldest goalscorer in the tournament,  bagging a penalty during Mexico’s 2-0 group stage romp over France.

After the tournament, Blanco, a legend in his homeland, returned to the relative quiet of Division 2 football. Now he’s back! Preparing to play a fireman in a Mexican TV drama series – alongside inescapable flirt Larissa Riquleme.

Says 37-year-old Blanco:

This is a big challenge for me, it’s a new stage (in my life). I know I’ll be criticised, people will make fun of me, but I don’t care, I’ll give it all my efforts and I know I’ll come through.

Jeez. It’s only acting.

Talking about “giving it all his effort” and “coming through”, Cuauhtemoc must be hoping Larissa keeps up her recent form. *ba-dum tssh* …   :(

    Isn’t Roger Milla the oldest player to score at a World Cup?
