In celebration of the recently concluded 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup, this month’s featured OppaGirl is Brazilian blonde bombshell Fernanda Colombo. Most interestingly, this gorgeous Latin American lady isn’t a football player, but a referee!
The 30-year-old has certainly been on thirsty football fans’ radars since she started her career in 2014. The deadly combination of a gorgeous face and an athletic body makes her an irresistible presence on the football field.
Colombo earned her degree in physical education. She also worked as a model before debuting on the pitch in 2014. Her husband is fellow Brazilian referee Sandro Ricci.
She recently went viral again for her flirtatious teasing of player Kitu Diaz in an Ecuadorian League match.
In the short clip posted all over social media, Colombo reaches into her pocket after a foul. The player who just committed a foul looks worried he might be sent off. But instead of pulling out a card, the beautiful and playful referee takes some tissue out and wipes her face!
It’s a simple prank, but no once can pull it off like this gorgeous match official.
An Indecent Proposal for Fernanda Colombo
Apart from officiating matches, Fernanda Colombo also writes for Brazilian site Metropoles, where she covered the Women’s World Cup. Additionally, she has written about video-assisted refereeing and fan violence at matches.
She has also authored a book, entitled Vamos Jogar Futebol (Let’s Play Football). In the book, she introduces readers to the rules of football and discusses the importance of fair play and refereeing.
She’s quite popular on social media. She has almost 500,000 followers on Instagram. Unfortunately, her fame has a downside, as she showed in a recent Instagram post.
Colombo revealed that she received an “immoral” proposal via email. Someone invited her to become a high-end escort, entertaining clients and earning around $7,000 each time.
She posted the screenshot of the email, writing that it made her feel like “trash.” She said, “I want to tell the world that I just want to do what I love, which means working with football and journalism. Please respect that.”
We at OppaGirls agree that the absolutely gorgeous Colombo should be able to do what she loves without facing indecent proposals. She looks amazing officiating matches, and we hope to see more of her on-pitch playfulness soon.
