A day after Argentina's victory over Australia and the celebrations surrounding Leo Messi's goal, Awat decided to focus on Ronaldo and shared a distant and sweet memory with the world.
"It's true that the whole world today is talking about Messi and rightly so, but my iPhone probably wants me to talk about Ronaldo," his uncle began, "the phone reminded me that 9 years ago, in the month of Kislu, the month of miracles, somewhere in Madrid a small and moving story happened to me that only a few people know and that speaks to the heart Cristiano Ronaldo's Giant".

"It was before our match between Mallorca and Real Madrid at the Bernabeu, I met Cristiano for a short chat and asked him for his signed game shirt for an important cause, and he agreed.
Only what happened was that we lost 3:1 and I had no head for anything and I didn't think about anything except the loss. I forgot about the shirt and I forgot about Cristiano, but he didn't forget.

The former survivor continued the fascinating story: "At the end of the game, the Portuguese star came to the Mallorca dressing room and asked the members of the management to call me. He said to me Avata "Que te pasa, what happened to you, did you forget what you asked for?!? And I am half embarrassed and half surprised that a legend like him thinks how is it possible To help people... because the purpose for which I wanted his shirt was to help raise funds for a sick child. When we stood together I told Cristiano not only that you are the best player in the world, you are a very big soul and a great person who cares about others and helps the weak."
