Marianela's going to be filling Nando's orange pants for the next two weeks

Meet Marianela Pereyra, the Soccer Gods’ temporary upgrade on Nando Vila. While our regular host is in Los Angeles anchoring Midterm Mayhem, Marianela has graciously agreed to hang out with Simon Carr. Somebody had to.

Marianela did make a few demands before signing up. Competitive leapfrog is now a staple of Fusion’s afternoon routine, while Nando now has to share the orange skinnies he keeps in the dressing room. And under no circumstances are we to ask about Marianela’s possibly criminal past supporting the Albiceleste.
