Riquelme notes she will paint her body in the Paraguayan colours if her country’s team wins the World Cup Final on July 11.
Paraguay must first triumph over Spain in Saturday’s quarterfinals. Paraguay overcame Japan in a penalty kick shootout.
How has the 24-year-old Riquelme become the face of Paraguay football fan frenzy? Photographers seem to love shooting the model, and she has recently appeared on major sports sites such as Spain’s AS.com and Italy’s Corriere dello Sport. Associated Press also is spreading photos of the good-looking woman wrapped in the flags of Paraguay or with her cellphone nestled between her cleavage as she watches the World Cup matches from the Paraguayan capital Asuncion.
Her Facebook Page boasts 40,713 “fans” at the time of publication.
