Paraguay put down Brazil in the Copa America last night, winning on penalties after Derlis Gonzalez equalized on a penalty in the second half and converted the deciding goal in the shootout. Reportedly, in the excitement of watching the winning shot, his 44-year-old uncle died of a heart attack.

Gonzalez was given the news after the game, and posted this to Twitter:


“Why today uncle? Why? You left me after a heart attack because I gave you so much joy and so much happiness. I can’t believe it.”
