The legend had already hosted a show for teleSUR, “De Zurda,” along with Victor Hugo for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, which proved to be a great international success.
It will air at 8 p.m. in Nicaragua and Costa Rica; 9 p.m. in Ecuador, Colombia and Mexico; 10 p.m. in Caracas, Bolivia and Cuba; and 11 p.m. in Argentina and Uruguay.
