[Sunday, December 18, 2011 ]

Argentina midfielder Ángel di María demonstrated in Real Madrid's 6-2 success at Sevilla that he is not only a footballer from head to toe.

About 48 hours ago, the 23-year-old was in his homeland mourning the death of his father-in-law. But two days later, di María professionally went back to play with Los Merengues in an important La Liga game at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán.

During the match, di María provided two assists before deservedly got on the scoresheet in the 66th minute, racing onto Karim Benzema's through-ball and steering a low effort past Javi Varas before dedicating the goal to his late father-in-law.

He looked at the sky while holding up a shirt where is written "German we will always miss you".

"Di María is an example for everyone," Real boss José Mourinho said after the match.

"He was at a funeral in Argentina a few days ago and today was available to play and now returns to Argentina again to be with his family. He has a great soul."
