Football is nothing without fans. The beautiful game is so popular around the world because of its unique ability to bring people together.

So we want to know what's on your mind each week. Which videos do you keep coming back to? Or has there been a fascinating feature on your favourite team or player that deserves wider viewing? Submit your thoughts via social media with the hashtag #WeLiveFootball, and we'll pick the top ones to showcase here.

This week's list is stuffed with record setters, from a teenager in Lisbon to a crowd for women's football in Lyon. It's curated by FIFA's Fan Movement and your choices on social media.

Brotherly love

From Estelle Aresti (Australia) When Benfica starlet Joao Felix became the youngest player to score a hat-trick in UEFA Europa League history last week, he had a little extra motivation on the sideline. After one of the 19-year-old's goals, he jogged behind the net to receive a big hug from his younger brother, who was a ball boy for the match. Surely @_EstelleAmaliaa was as charmed as we were by the footage of this family affair.

Flamengo flashback

From Paula Alvarenga (Brazil) Ever wonder how fan traditions are born and evolve through the years? Brazilian giants Flamengo are demystifying their history with a video series spotlighting key figures in the stands on matchdays. Check out the latest instalment via @Paulinha1895.

Lyon show out on the field and in the stands

From David (France) @ExploreFeelGood brings us another of many signs that France are itching to host the FIFA Women's World Cup™ this year: Nearly 26,000 fans saw hosts Lyon outshine PSG in a clash at the top of the Division 1 Feminine, setting a French club attendance record.

San Lorenzo lead the charge

From Rocio Garcia (Mexico) More history in the women's game was made across the Atlantic last week, with Buenos Aires-based San Lorenzo becoming the first Argentinian club to sign female players to professional contracts. It's a massive first step for women's club football in the country recognised by @Pamboleras.

United against hate

From Ebrahim Kondkar (India) We round out the list with an important message from Manchester United spotted by @EbrahIMred. Juan Mata and many more stars from the men's and women's teams at the club speak out against hatred and discrimination in football with this impactful video.
