Tonny Vilhena is only 21 years old. He plays for the Dutch football club Feyenoord. Tonny's mother lost her battle to cancer towards the end of October. The last few weeks have been difficult for the youngster. So Feyenoord fans made sure they showed him how much he means to them.

The entire crowd lit up the stadium and sang You'll Never Walk Alone, a gesture that showed they are there to share his grief. The heartwarming tribute was produced by the fans right before Feyenoord's match against PEC Zwolle this weekend.

I was a bit emotional. They still think of you and be with you. I could lose my head on the field, that works for me as a good distraction. And I’ve had a lot of support recently from players, staff, and management. Actually everyone inside and outside of Feyenoord,

said Tonny.
