The fans were off to Wembley.

Everton fans' day rescued by Liverpool supporter and a famous boxer after coach mishap

Published 9 Comments

One Everton fan has been left heartbroken after his dream trip to Wembley in order to see his side take on Manchester United in the semi-finals of the FA Cup fell through.

The Toffees are gunning for a place in the final against Louis van Gaal's side to ensure an otherwise dissapointing season on Merseyside ends on a high.

One Twitter user has been chronicling his trip to London to support Roberto Martinez's side - and it didn't start very well.

"@Dan_EFC1878" posted an image of his disappointed-looking son after their coach down south left without them. It was quite a sorry scene. 

But then the internet came to the rescue. Yes, the same internet that also has trolls, hatred, Donald Trump and Piers Morgan all over it.

First off, Liverpool-based boxer Tony Bellew saw the message and then kindly offered to give the child and his father two tickets to his upcoming fight at Goodison Park against Ilunga Makabu on May 29.

Then Virgin Trains did their bit by getting the duo down to London, and then a Liverpool fan sorted them out with tickets. What a world we live in.

It later transpired that missing the coach was a misunderstanding with the organiser - and while the day started as a disaster, it ended up as demonstrating the power of human kindness. Ahh. 

All that will probably be forgotten if Everton lose, mind. Now come on Roberto, Ross, Romelu and the rest of you chaps - don't let a young child down.

Do you think Everton have a chance of beating Manchester United this afternoon?
