“Yesterday I promised my lady that I would go out on the field with a clear objective: to score a goal to dedicate to our future baby. The joy and enthusiasm pushed me to score not one, but two. Thanks to Hiba Abouk for making me feel the best feeling that can exist, and for being my life partner and my best friend! I love you!” reads the caption written in Spanish.
