The last goal before his last breath

Just 25. A great footballer. All the way from Brazil. With a young wife. An exciting life ahead.

As he kicked his goal in and flew high, his jubilant face was caught by cameras to be splashed across headlines, probably saying, "The goal that won the match". As the opponent goalkeeper attempted to keep him down, he fell. Never to get up again.

And the headlines changed.

A goal he scored. With a life he gave.

How could he die on the field? After scoring a winning goal? In a strange country?

Rest in peace, Christiano Junior.
