Another dream come true!

Club

The Benfica Foundation and the Professional Football joined forces and fulfulled Sónia's dream… See the video and the photo gallery of the moment here.

Sónia Marques is 14 years old, she is from Madeira and she is living in Lisbon for more than a year, where she is being accompanied by IPO in the fight against a cancer disease.

She always liked sports and, in Madeira, she played football and more recently futsal.

Sónia had a dream, the wish of watching a Benfica match at  Estádio da Luz and meet the squad, especially Jonas.

The Benfica Foundation and the Professional Football joined forces and fulfilled Sónia's dream in the last encounter, for Gameweek 23 of Liga NOS, in which Benfica beat Boavista by 4-0.

She arrived at the stadium accompanied by her cousin and when she peeked to the interior of the Cathedral she did not hide the emotion she was feeling.

But Sónia was far from imagining that she would meet her idols.

At the end of the evening, although visibly tired, Sónia left the Stadium with a giant smile on her face.

An emotive moment, to remember and that you can see here...
