After the spectacular 5-0 victory last night against Olaine.  The spectacle for the evening wasn’t over.  

A plan hatched by Riga United legend Sofian Berrahal to surprise his girlfriend by proposing to her in front of the family, friends and fans came to fruition.

As the players walked over to the crowd, they formed a guard of honour for Sofian to walk down and Liene’s name was duly called out, after being encouraged to go, Liene hesitantly walked onto the pitch, thinking she was going to be thanked for bringing so many fans to the game. As Liene arrived, Sofian walked through the guard of honour and got down on one knee. The realisation set in and to everyone’s delight, Liene said “Yes”. Elvis Presley's ‘Can’t Help Falling In Love’, chosen by Sofian, then played through the stadium speakers.   

Speaking to RUSG, Sofian had this to say about last night: “It was an incredible evening! I was able to gather all the loved ones in this special place. My team mates were amazing; winning the game first and then making the spectacle for us. There was a great synergy between the things, which are very dear to me. My fiancée had no clue what was going on and the most important aspect is she said yes! Everything turned out really perfectly”

Riga United FC and the Supporters’ Group would like to congratulate Sofian and Liene once more and wish all the happiness for them both in the future.
