FC Porto got absolutely hammered by Bayern Munich on Tuesday. The Bavarian giants put a 6-1 smack down on the Portuguese, eliminating Porto from the Champions League and ending their European dream.
Porto’s walk off the pitch was miserable. Their dressing room was depressing. Their bus ride to the airport was quiet. Their flight back to Portugal was sad.
And their arrival at the airport … it was amazing.
An estimated 300 fans went to the airport at 3 a.m. to welcome the team back from Germany. And that is after getting absolutely crushed! Porto got destroyed and their fans’ dreams were dashed, yet they stayed up well after midnight and went to the airport to sing and cheer for them anyway.
Just … wow. Can we cheer for the cheering fans?
