She said ‘Yes’… then they both said NOOOOOOOO!!!!

Life was pretty swell for one Mexican fan. He had secured decent seats inside Estadio Castelao, his side were moments away from beating the heavily-fancied Dutch - and, inspired by the historic scenes on the pitch, he got down on one knee and asked his girlfriend to marry him. She said yes!

Seconds later, Wesley Sneijder was wheeling away in delight after grabbing an equaliser for the Netherlands. Joy turned instantly to horror, but while the couple’s golden day was dampened, at least they could still look forward to their men having a fighting chance in extra-time.

Unfortunately, Mexico conceded an injury-time penalty – converted by Klaas Jan Huntelaar – as the Europeans completed a dramatic turnaround to eliminate the CONCACAF nation.

Our advice: wait until full-time before planting yourself down on one knee and popping the big question. We just hope the couple’s wedding is less traumatic.
