Chiapas player Jonathan Fabbro might not have expected it but his model girlfriend Larissa Riquelme has said that she would strip naked if the team reaches the final in the Mexican League, according to reports.

The model was interviewed by Univision TV station where she was asked how she would react if the team reaches the final. She was quoted to have responded saying: “I think the idea of a double would be a good one. After all, a championship winning performance needs a lot of effort from everybody. Hopefully it might even stimulate the right people to do their best. Maybe I would do it with Johnny [Fabbro], so that women would be able to enjoy him and men would be able to enjoy Larissa.”

This is not the first time Larissa was making such promises. During the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, the model said she would strip naked if Fabbro and his Paraguayan teammates won the tournament. She promised a nude photo and delivered during the tournament even though the South American side were knocked out in the quarterfinal stage.

“It will be a present to all the players, and for all the people in Paraguay to enjoy. They tried as hard as possible and gave it their all on the field,” she said as reasons for releasing the nude photos.

This time she is taking it a notch higher by promising to include her partner if the club reaches the final after a fan asked her on TV. However going by her antecedent, Riquelme may go ahead to post the pictures even if they do not reach the final as she said.

The upcoming edition of Copa Libertadores is going to be bigger than the previous editions and there will be quite a few sides taking part in this competition for the first time this season.

One of the sides making the debut will be Deportivo Capiata which belongs to Paraguay.

Capiata’s rise to the continental competition is absolutely extraordinary because it’s a very young club. It’s actually only 9 years back that it had come to existence.

There is surely an element of luck involved in Capiata making it to Libertadores. It was not among the first three teams that had earned the direct qualification to the competition from Paraguay.

But, the spot opened up for Capiata when the Football association of Mexico decided that it wouldn’t be sending any of its teams as the schedule of the matches of its domestic league was conflicting with the schedule of Libertadores.

Because of that, a few vacancies got created in the competition and to fill that, one more spot was given to some of the other countries including Paraguay and that one spot given to Paraguay went to Capiata.

Actually the total no. of vacancies created by Mexico’s absence was three, but, the extra spots were given to 6 countries. It means that 6 teams got the entry and the format is such that there will be three qualifying ties between those 6 teams and the teams which end up winning those ties will proceed to the main competition.

Capiata’s tie has been set against Tachira, a team which plays in the Venezuela top tier.

The Libertadores has obviously lost some of its colour by no Mexico representation, but, from Capiata’s point of view, they wouldn’t mind that because it gives them the opportunity to showcase themselves at the continental level and that too within a decade of their creation. That boggles mind.
