Everton Football Club held their own against Manchester United on Saturday, February 6, drawing 3-3 during a tense Premier League game, to the delight of a lifelong supporter in Liverpool who celebrated from his wheelchair.

Footage recorded by Dean Howgate shows his brother Chris, who has Down syndrome, crying with joy after Dominic Calvert-Lewin scored in the 95th minute of the game.

Howgate told Storyful that when Chris was hospitalized as a child, he woke up after heart surgery shouting “Everton!” from his bed.
