Sofia Vergara is the picture of casual elegance during dinner and soccer match in Saudi Arabia


Sofia Vergara confessed to having a bad case of jet lag after she made the nearly 8300 mile flight from Los Angeles to Riyadh, the capital city of Saudi Arabia.

Eventually, after getting situated in her plush accommodations, which included rest and a meal or two, the actress took part in some sight-seeing across the region.

Despite her busy schedule, she also got to take in a friendly football (soccer) match between Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) and an all-star team composed of Al Nassr and Al Hilal players, that included all-time greats Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
