‘Always for you, Mom’ – Joao Cancelo dedicates first Barcelona goal to his mother

Joao Cancelo dedicated his maiden Barcelona goal to his mother who sadly passed away in a car accident in 2013.

Cancelo, who arrived at Barcelona from Manchester City on loan on the deadline day, scored his first-ever goal for Barcelona in just his second appearance for the club against Real Betis on Saturday.

After the match, Cancelo posted a photo of himself pointing his fingers towards the sky while celebrating the goal with a caption, “Always for you, Mom. Visca el Barça.” Cancelo’s mother Filomena passed away in a tragic car accident in January 2013.

Both deadline-day signings Cancelo and Joao Felix found the back of the net as Barcelona thrashed Betis 5-0. Ferran Torres also became the first Barcelona player since Lionel Messi in 2021 to score from a direct free-kick.
