Some interesting info that I would like to share with all Boca fans out there, as I was reading the local newspaper.

Juan Martin DEL PORTO is a huge Boca fans and in the build up towards his clash with Roger FEDERER, this is what he said, “Before going out to play, I listen to Boca fans’ songs that motivates me even more. I have them on an I-Pod and I put them on before playing and then it’s as if I was on the pitch against River Plate”.

FEDEX you’ve been warned!!!
