While accompanying some of their favourite footballers, mascots are bound to get star-struck, as was the case with a young boy who recently stood side by side with Zlatan Ibrahimovic. In turn, the striker comforted the boy before walking on to the pitch. Did you see it?
As many expected, the 37-year-old hit the ground running in his second MLS season, having scored six goals in four games thus far, and continuing the form that won many a heart among football fans in the United States in the 2017/18 campaign.
This past weekend, Zlatan managed to get himself on the scoresheet yet again as LA Galaxy beat Houston Dynamo 2-1 at the Dignity Health Sports Park in California.
Ahead of the game, the Swede was seen calming a young mascot's nerves with a few words of confidence as they readied themselves to walk on to the pitch.
