Just like the saying that ‘dreams come true’, Saturday, July 3 will remain a day of dream fulfilment as American footballer Hassani Dotson proposed to his girlfriend Petra Vukovic on the pitch, News18 reports.
The midfielder had just helped his Minnesota United side to a 2-2 draw with San Jose Earthquake at the ongoing Major League Soccer when he made the stunning move.
It was a regular day for Vukovic as she made a way to the pitch to greet her lover at the end of the game, only for him to go down on a knee.
A ring-box emerged and the girlfriend, obviously surprised, covered her face with both hands and the question was thrown at her as she nodded.
SportsNDTV reports that they were immediately engaged in front of thousands of cheering fans and the later took to social media to celebrate the moment.
“I liked it… So I put a ring on it."
Vukovic, who was overcome with emotions, put words to those feelings on Instagram. She wrote:
“There aren’t words that express anything close to the happiness my heart feels. To be loved by you is a blessing Hassani.
"A huge thank you for all of the wishes and to everyone who was involved in helping put this beautiful everlasting memory into my life."
And this is not the first time a footballer is proposing to his girlfriend on the field of play.
In 2015, Super Eagles of Nigeria midfielder John Ogu proposed to his girlfriend on the pitch right after helping his Israeli league team, Hapoel Beer Sheva to defeat Macabi Petahwas 5 – 2.
Ogu’s Saturday was made exceptional after he proposed to his girlfriend Chiugo at the end of the match.
The love-birds were so excited as the lady immediately screamed YES at the centre of the Arthur Vesermil Stadium.
Meanwhile, it was earlier reported that Georgina Rodriguez has revealed that her partner Cristiano Ronaldo reacts to defeats in football maturely whenever he returns home to be with his family.
The 36-year-old is a super athlete who has broken and set new records everywhere he has gone to play - including his present club Juventus.
However, sometimes the outcome of the game does not favour him and instead of beating himself up, he simply understands that it is part of the game.
