World Cup fan in Korea for love


The World Cup’s most famous fan is seeking her soulmate in Korea.

Larissa Riquelme, who cheered her way to stardom during the 2010 World Cup with a racy photo of her with her cell phone stuck in between her breasts, has signed up with Korean matchmaking agency Sunoo and already has three dates, according to a press release from Sunoo.

Riquelme, who is a model in her home country of Paraguay, said she became aware of the matchmaking agency through a friend working at the Paraguayan Embassy in Korea.

Her first date was with a businessman on Tuesday. The two reportedly went to a dog cafe.

Her second date was yesterday with a financial expert, while the last date will be with a lawyer today.

Riquelme says she plans to select her soulmate from among the three gentlemen. The dates come as Korea learns late tonight whether it will host the 2022 World Cup.
