Interestingly, Riquelme is not the first one to make such a promise.

Argentine coach Diego Maradona was the first to make such a promise when he said that he would run naked around the streets of Buenos Aires if his team triumphed at the World Cup.

Paraguay has enjoyed a dream run in the tournament so far when they beat Japan 5-3 on penalties to reach the quarter-finals for the first time.

Paraguay go into a last-eight meeting with pre-finals favourites Spain having boosted the South American quarter-final tally to four teams including Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay.

The model is also seen keeping her mobile phone between her breasts, and has joked she would like to replace it with the World Cup, according to the Daily Mail.

It has also helped push Riquelme's popularity as she has gone from relative obscurity to one of the most searched people on the Internet thanks for Paraguay's success at the ongoing World Cup.
