The idea was literally seven years in the making, but it was certainly worth it…

When Nacional supporters decided in 2006 to produce and unfurl the what is probably the biggest tifo ever at a football match, uncertain glances were cast. During their game against Toluca in the Copa Libertadores last night however, the unimaginable finally happened.

The gigantic tifo is 600m in length and 54m in height, and it took more than 18 months to print. Canvassing most of the stadium, we hope that the Nacional fans didn’t miss their club’s 4-0 demolition of Toluca.

In the spirit of Valentines Day, we bring you this lovely clip straight from Latin America where Damian Diaz scored an absolute laser to help give Ecuador’s Barcelona a 2-2 draw against Nacional.

Diaz’s celebration however made headlines around the world as the Argentine striker sealed his goal celebration by locking lips with, wait for it, wait for it, his mother!

Yeah, we said it, his mother!

Though we can’t confirm based on the video footage, there’s no official word if tongues were exchanged during their wire fence smooch-fest.
