The English team won with a deep score of 4-0, but the fourth goal was the most special in this challenge.

When the last minutes of the match were being played, everyone was surprised by the substitution made by coach Frank Lampard.

Everton fan Paul Stratton was wearing the club’s uniform and was coming on for Dele Alli and at that moment the referee awarded a penalty to the English club.

 

Lampard was giving the last instructions to the fan who was going to step in to shoot the penalty awarded by the referee.

Paul Stratton scored from the penalty spot as the stadium erupted in celebration for him as fans dropped to their knees in celebration and kissed the club crest.

There was a special reason for this

Paul Stratton is an old Everton fan, but at the beginning of the war in Ukraine he went as a volunteer to help the Ukrainian people.

The Englishman is a former police officer and together with some of his former colleagues stayed for several days on the Polish-Ukraine border helping Ukrainian refugees to escape from the war.

 

The match between Everton and Dynamo Kiev was for charity and it was the right moment for the English club to honor their fan who did a great job in helping the Ukrainian people.

Still, it was a nice gesture from manager Frank Lampard and it surprised everyone at Goodison Park.

All proceeds from this match will go to help the Ukrainian people, while as for the Stratton fan, he realized a dream of his to score at Goodison Park.
