Marc Guiu has taken the soccer world by storm. The young talent, who recently scored the fastest debutant goal in FC Barcelona’s history, stole the spotlight with his remarkable performance against Athletic Club, securing three crucial points for his team in the dying moments of the match.

Guiu’s goal triggered an avalanche of reactions. Teammates, the coach, and fans all voiced their admiration and excitement, but the most heartwarming moment of the night came from the stands of the Estadi Olímpic Lluís Companys. That’s where Marc Guiu’s mother celebrated her son’s achievement, becoming a viral sensation in the process.

Among the many reactions, one stood out in particular - that of Joao Cancelo, the Portuguese full-back. After the referee, Munuera, blew the final whistle, Cancelo sought out Guiu on the field to offer his heartfelt congratulations. What he said next became an instant classic.

“You have to pay for dinner. You have to pay for a dinner at McDonald’s.”
