  1. Hahahaha, he obviously cares a lot more about his wife and kids than about Mou, and rightfully so.

  2. He will always be El Nino to me, and what great answers! I love that he knows where Sponge Bob works and I love all the answers related to his wife and children!

  3. i LOVE that he was so specific about the spongebob squarepants one — you can tell he’s a papi! hahaha!

  4. his response to what to give sara was perfect!

  5. Hahaha! Reading this, I remembered how vague Fernando’s answers were to the questionnaires you translated during the other Cups, too….

    He’s so unashamedly accurate about where SpongeBob lives after 5 vague/’i have no idea’ answers. Scoring goals, not scoring, scowling, or being half of Sernando, whatever. I just love this man.

    Thanks, Una!!!

    • Oh- and yes, una! DEFINITELY one to highlight: “When was the last time you cried? Just a while ago, because I miss my kids.” *_* love!

  6. Thank you for translating!! Loved his advice to Sara, heh!

  7. Oh my god. Fer is precious as always – the bit about his kids was so sweet, and I cracked up/totally agreed with his answer re: gifts for Sara.
