The Colombian government has provided an update on the kidnapping of Liverpool's Luis Diaz's father.
Diaz was sending a heartfelt message in remembrance of his father, who had been abducted and it seems that his Colombian family was just as moved by his Liverpool goal.
A short video of the player's grandparents' house shows a throng of people inside rejoicing after Diaz scored the goal with his head to bring Liverpool back to par.
Some were gathered around a television and they could be seen screaming and pumping air with their fists as a member rushed to shut the open window as reported by Daily Mail.
Meanwhile, the leader of the rebel group that took the football player's parents hostage earlier acknowledged that they had made a "mistake" in not releasing his father, Luis Manuel Diaz.
Peace negotiations with the ELN are still ongoing and military personnel are currently seeking to release Diaz's father.
