Holland’s late win completely stuffed up a Mexican fan’s marriage proposal at the stadium [Picture]
Football fan @Simon_Bristow captured a bittersweet moment during the Mexico-Holland match on Sunday in Fortaleza.
Towards the end of the match, with Mexico lead the Dutch 1-0, one El Tri supporter decided this glorious moment was the perfect time to get down on one knee and propose to his girlfriend.
According to the eye witness, no sooner had the man popped the question, but Wesley Sneijder buried the equaliser for the Europeans.
As we now know, Klaas-Jan Huntelaar then scored an injury time penalty to complete the amazing Oranje turnaround.
