Spain: Unconceivable Oblivion of an Atlético Madrid Football Club Fan

In an exciting football soccer match, Real Madrid team defeated with a final score of four goals to one the Atlético de Madrid for the Champions League championship, in the Estadio da Luz in Lisbon. Fans from one and another team cheered their favorites in the Portuguese stadium. All but Jacinto, who minutes away from the starting kick and at the entrance of the packed stadium, realized he had forgotten his ticket at home, in Madrid.

Jacinto, Atletico fan with ID 474, a fan for over 50 years. Has forgotten his ticket at home. He has asked for a solution on @carrusel.

Some Twitter users looked for the positive side of the situation and joked about it:

Let's consider the good angle: no worries for Jacinto xddddd

An idol Jacinto. More surely he will arrive to Madrid tonight and won't be able to get into his house, as he left his keys in Lisbon.
