However, it’s a bit of a sad story.
The fan, whose father died in a car crash on his way to watch Marseille, was invited to get things underway ahead of the club’s Ligue 1 clash with Rennes.
However, instead of passing the ball, the youngster proceeded to sprint through the visitor’s half before firing the ball into the back of the net.
