Young soccer fan distraught after team collapses

New, comment

This Rapid Wien fan can't believe her club gave up their edge over Shakhtar Donetsk so quickly

You're never too young to show emotion as a sports fan, and that was indeed the case with this young fan of Austrian soccer club Rapid Wien Tuesday evening.

Her side seemed destined for an upset of Shakhtar Donetsk in their Champions League second leg playoff tie, when they took a shock 2-1 lead and were slated to advance on the away goals rule with the tie even at 2-2. But when Shakhtar immediately scored to take the lead in the series 3-2, cue the frustration and despair from this adorable little lady.

Rapid Wien eventually lost to Donetsk by the same score, but the cameras never dared to see more desperate reactions from the precious, passionate fan.
