These sisters have dreamed of playing soccer together for the US women’s national team since they were little girls. During the 2014 Algarve Cup, that dream became a reality:

Gonzalo and Federico Higuain (Argentina)

Gonzalo is clearly the more well-known Higuain, but older brother Federico has also had a decent career in soccer. He currently plays for the Columbus Crew, and scores really pretty goals, like this one:

Cristiano Ronaldo is at it again.

It was only last month that CR7 paid for a young fan’s brain surgery, and here he is producing yet another reason for why, regardless of your opinion of him, he deserves your respect and admiration.

Fourteen-year old Ronaldo fan Dawid Pawlaczyk was in a coma for three months after getting hit by a car, during which time his family had been playing Ronaldo’s matches for Dawid to listen to. In a magical coincidence, according to Yahoo, the boy finally woke up on the same day his favorite player shot Portugal past Sweden in the World Cup qualifying play-offs.

After Polish outlet Fakt contacted Ronaldo about the story, the selfless star immediately treated the boy and his family to a trip to Madrid for Real’s Champions League clash against Dortmund, even giving the boy his jersey after the game.

And so the legend of Cristiano Ronaldo grows a little more.
