Ryan helps dying Club Brugge fan's wish come true

Socceroo goalkeeper Mat Ryan has played a part in granting a final wish to a terminally-ill fan of Club Brugge, who he described as an "inspiration".

As reported in The Mirror, Belgian native Lorenzo Schoonbaert postponed a visit to a euthanasia clinic so he could see his beloved team at home in derby action one last time.

Schoonbaert and his seven-year-old daughter were given an emotional tribute in front of over 20,000 supporters before kick-off against local rivals Mouscron-Peruwelz on Sunday.
