This weekend Ibai Llanos organized the seventh edition of Ibainéfico, a solidarity event that stands out for its originality. Among the most talked about moments this past Saturday, December 2, was the peculiar participation of Marina Rivers, a well-known content creator on TikTok and for being one of the social media speakers on TardeAR.
This edition of the event surprised with a Kings League-style competition in which several personalities, including Rivers, were selected to be part of teams in a special draft. Although the spirit of the competition is similar to that of Gerard Piqué's Kings League, no prior knowledge of football was required.
This led to some memorable moments, especially when Marina Rivers, with no previous experience in the sport, had the great responsibility of taking a penalty for Porcinos. While her shortcomings had been hidden during the match, when she came face to face with the goalkeeper it was quickly seen that football is not her thing.
It was an important penalty, since scoring it put his team ahead. His attempt turned out to be a weak and wide throw. He didn't even take goal. The influencer's disappointment was more than evident, since she apologized to Ibai for such an execution.
This penalty triggered a wave of reactions on social networks. One user expressed his astonishment with these words: “But let's see, how do you hit a ball so badly? I say that even if you don't know how to play, you will be able to give direction and power to a round object.' Another added humor to the situation by comparing his ability with that of the well-known soccer player Joao Félix: "He doesn't define much better."
Although the football level is not the best, Ibainéfico is expected to be a success. As Ibai announced before the competition began, in previous editions a total of 800,000 euros were raised. The objective is to exceed one million euros collected in total. Yesterday alone, more than 20,000 euros were raised for the Guttmann Institute.
