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.
