This brave stadium visitor made Real Betis’ 2-1 league win at Granada CF a minor matter!
After the last-minute winning goal of the Andalusian guests (89th), around 11,000 fans from BOTH teams were delighted – for the terminally ill Miguel (16)! The brave palliative patient was fulfilled by the organization “Ambulancia del Deseo” (in English: the “wish Sanka”) to see his favorite team play Betis live.
A “wish Sanka” surprised the boy from Murcia on Sunday and brought him to the Estadio Nuevo Los Cármenes in Granada. From the middle tier he was allowed to cheer his idols on an ambulance stretcher. Miguel overjoyed to the daily newspaper “Ideal”: “I’m really happy to be here! I didn’t know where I was going, even though I had a little premonition. I went nuts when I saw the stadium’s nameplate. “
The dream of visiting the stadium had come true, his team had won – and then Miguel’s day was even better: Betis legend and captain Joaquín Sánchez (40) gave the Edel fan a shirt signed by the entire team! Miguel: “I asked him to dedicate three goals to me. He was very nice to me! A few days ago Joaquín sent me a video saying that we should see each other soon. But how should that work … I didn’t expect this! “
The brave fighter will not forget this dream day anytime soon …
