GIJON, Asturias, Spain (WCMH) — After scoring the winning goal for his team Real Madrid on Monday, midfielder Isco had an 8-year-old fan on his mind.

He made an “I love you” gesture to the fans in sign language before his teammates swarmed him in a joyful goal celebration.

In an interview after the game, he explained why: A young girl whose parents are deaf had asked him to make the sign for “I love you” if he scored in the game. Isco and the 8-year-old girl spoke briefly during an autograph session, where he met her and her parents.

Isco’s full name is Francisco Román Alarcón Suárez. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
