Parkland Survivor to Meet His Barcelona Soccer Heroes
Shot five times while shielding his classmates from a gunman at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School last year, FC Barcelona fan Anthony Borges will meet the team at a training session in Spain today. Last night, the 16-year-old attended a match between his favorite squad and France’s Lyon. Borges will also receive a T-shirt signed by Barça players “in honor of his bravery.”
How did his trip come about? The team reportedly helped Borges with his medical treatment and arranged the visit after spotting the youngster wearing a Barcelona shirt during a TV interview.
