Captain of the English national team Harry Kane swore to do everything possible to beat Sweden in a pledge to 5-year-old Ben Williams, who is fighting a brain tumor.
Touched by the boy's dedication, Kane responded on his Twitter account, giving a promise to push the team ahead.
Users on Twitter didn't stay on the sidelines, supporting Williams and wishing good luck to the national team with the hashtag #BringItHome.
