Attending a football or sports event at the stadium with a toddler brings all the joys to any parent but one mother had a different experience. Morgan Tucker was in the spotlight during a Major League Soccer match between FC Cincinnati and Orlando City.
This comes after her two-year-old son, Zaydek, raced into the pitch and the young man won a number of fans for being cheeky as he outsmarted his mom.
According to the Western Journal, the two were at TQL Stadium on Sunday as Tucker attended as a guest of her employer. However, it is reported that the young potential footballer took to the pitch after 70 minutes of action.
Morgan Tucker explains the pitch invasion incident
The proud mother told the media that she looked away for a second, thus granting a perfect opportunity for the toddler. She is quoted by the Western Journal:
“I literally looked away for one second and saw he was under the fence and I was like, ‘Oh my gosh!' I had to jump over the gate and then sprinted after him. When I slid and tackled him, I did not feel any pain but the next day I was sore for sure. I was so scared he was going to get hit in the head with a soccer ball.”
On the other side of the coin, MLS Soccer reports that rumours suggest that Cincinnati’s academy is already looking to offer the young man a contract as a potential homegrown.
