VIDEO: Young fan celebrates after scoring from ceremonial kick-off at Marseille

Takes shirt off and slides across the pitch.

🔥

A young Marseille fan ran half the length of the pitch and scored after taking the ceremonial kick-off ahead of their 2-2 draw with Rennes in Ligue 1 on Sunday.

Yassin was invited to take part at the Stade Vélodrome on the ten-year anniversary of his father’s death on the way to a game.

The youngster took his chance to net past visiting goalkeeper Tomáš Koubek before taking his shirt off in a sliding celebration.

Afterwards, the boy is quoted as saying:

It was a surprise.

And I realised it, my dream.

It was to score on the pitch, and that the stadium was electric with energy.
