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.
