As you can see below, Twitter was far from sympathetic.

Whether or not the kids were still in the stadium to see Leonardo Ulloa score a 95th minute equaliser from the penalty spot is unknown. But those tears would have, undoubtedly, turned into a big smile after Claudio Ranieri’s side earned, what could be, a valuable point.
