It isn’t every day that one gets to provide an assist for a player they use on PlayStation in an actual game in real life – but AC Milan’s Rafael Leao managed to achieve just that.
Leao could not hide his excitement after replicating his virtual experience in real life as he turned provider for Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s stoppage-time equalizer against Torino.
His assist gave way for the Ibrahimovic to score his first goal back at San Siro in his second spell at Milan, making it 4-2 and sealing the Rossoneri’s passage to the semi-finals of the Coppa Italia with an extra time win over Torino.
“I used to play with him on my PlayStation and today I gave him an assist. Never stop dreaming,” Leao stated on his Instagram story after the game on Tuesday night.
Ever since Zlatan started playing for the Rossoneri, they are yet to suffer a single loss winning five and drawing one in six games. Prior to the Swede’s arrival, AC Milan had lost five in a row.
The 38-year-old will be face Cristiano Ronaldo’s Juventus in the Coppa Italia semifinals on February 12.
