The gesture is beautiful on the part of FC Barcelona. For the eighth-final return of the Champions League against Lyon (21h on RMC Sport 1), the Catalan club has invited Anthony Borges. On February 14, 2018, the American teenager was in high school in Parkland, Florida, when Nikolas Cruz shot dead seventeen of his classmates.
Five bullets in the body
Heroic, Anthony blocked the door of a classroom where he had taken refuge with twenty other students. He was shot five times in the body and did not leave the hospital until two months later. The young football fan went through a Barça academy in Lauderhill in 2016 and was visited by Manel Arroyo, then vice president of the Catalan club, after leaving the hospital. He then promised him an invitation to Camp Nou when Anthony could travel. It is done and it will be part of the 100,000 spectators expected this Wednesday night.
