Defensa y Justicia suffered a 1-0 home defeat to Boca Juniors on Sunday evening, a fifth straight match without a win in Argentina’s Primera División. Luis Vázquez dinked the winner past keeper Ezequiel Unsain in the 92nd minute to secure all three points for the visitors.
After the final whistle blew, Unsain fell to his knees, disconsolate over his role in the defeat.
The goalkeeper was then consoled not by a teammate, coach or even an opponent, but by a young boy from the stands. A child pitch invader consoled Unsain, and the touching moment was caught on camera.
Child Pitch Invader Consoles Keeper

Normally I’m against all forms of pitch invaders who aren’t on four legs, but we’ll give this kid a pass for showing such empathy to the 27-year-old keeper.
Keep this moment in mind when you’re having a go at fans of clubs like Liverpool or Manchester United for their team being shite; maybe give them a hug instead of making fun of them.
Below are the highlights from the match, in case you don’t care about the shenanigans of a caring child and a defeated goalkeeper and just want to see what that soccer do.
