The gesture of Jhon Arias with a family of Fluminense fans who applaud him in Brazil

Soccer is more than an eleven sport, its charm goes beyond what happens on the field of play. On March 8, Fluminense was crowned champion of the Guanabara Cup, defeating Flamengo 2-1, but not only the victory over his eternal rival drew attention, but also the gesture that Colombian soccer player Jhon Arias had with a family of fans.

Arias, a starter with Fluminense, jumped from the dressing room onto the field of play holding a young fan by the hand, a common scene in the protocol actors of all soccer matches. What nobody knew is who the footballer’s companion was, which is why he decided against his story through a thread on Twitter.

The player from Choco, who hopes to be summoned by Néstor Lorenzo to the Colombian National Team the next Fifa date, He said that he went out with the young man to the grass of the mythical Maracana Stadium to fulfill his dream and that of his mother, who is fighting cancer.

“A few days ago my girlfriend told me a beautiful story of a mother who is fighting the most important battle of her life for her and her son, which impressed us a lot, because it leaves us great life lessons,” the coffee grower began to narrate. .

The story inspired Jhon Arias so much that he invited the woman to the stadium to cheer on the team with his girlfriend. Likewise, he asked her son to accompany him to the playing field in the protocol acts.

“And to you, Ananda and Branquinho, a hug,” added Arias, who arrived at Fluminense in 2021, after drawing the attention of the Brazilian club for what he did at Independiente Santa Fe. Today, the value of the left winger, who in the Guanabara Cup scored two goals, is 7 million $.

It is worth remembering that Arias was called up to the Colombian National Team in May 2022, in a friendly match against Saudi Arabia, and since then he has been taken into account in the team, especially after the arrival of Nestor Lorenzo on the bench. Now, the illusion of him is to be summoned to the meetings that are coming.

“I have been part of the last calls. I have expectations to continue in the process. Colombia is putting together something important. It hurt us a lot to be left out of the last World Cup, because of the kind of players we have, because of the team we are and because of everything that football represents in Colombia,” he told the newspaper AS after his title against Flamengo.

Until now, Nestor Lorenzo, former assistant to José Néstor Pekerman, has not released the list of summoned for the next friendly matches of the Colombian National Team, in which the team will be accommodating to play the qualifiers for the 2026 World Cup.
