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 #WeLiveFootball, and we'll pick the top ones to showcase here.

Our FIFA Fan Movement members start us off with stories centered on this year's two CONMEBOL Libertadores finalists, then jump to inspiring developments in Denmark and Costa Rica. We round out the week with pearls of wisdom from Le Professeur.

The gift of Flamengo, from father to son

Imagine this: Your club is playing in its first FIFA Club World Cup™, with a chance to repeat a historic Intercontinental Cup triumph over Liverpool, and your dad surprises you with the trip of a lifetime to witness it all in person. How would you react? Watch the heartwarming moment unfold below, brought to us by Nicolesotelor.

River masterclass

River Plate lifted the Copa Argentina this week for a third time in four years, and they capped off the final against Central Cordoba with this mesmerising team move. Twenty touches later, Julian Alvarez taps the ball into the back of the net for River's final goal in a 3-0 win. The Best FIFA Men's Coach 2019 nominee Marcelo Gallardo had his side playing beautiful football. Thanks for sharing, Nicolasfranciulli!

16,900 strong

That was the number of roaring fans in the stands at Alejandro Morera Soto Stadium to witness the Costa Rican women's club final between two of the nation's powerhouses: Codea Alajuelense and Saprissa. Codea got the best of the two-legged affair, as Priscilla Chinchilla's second-half strike in the return leg lifted them to a 2-1 aggregate victory and their first league title. Stephhlml took notice of the record crowd, another big step forward for women's football in her home country.

Football for all

For Andreas Jakobsen and Oliver Svangren, Randers FC is far more than a football club. Both young men are disabled, and each has earned an integral role on the staff of the Danish outfit. UEFA spotlighted the story as one of their best of the year, and NikosVrOfficial sent it our way. "Even though some people are different, everyone can unite through football," said Jakobsen.

Wenger beseeches equal growth

As FIFA’s recently-appointed Chief of Global Football Development, Arsene Wenger is already digging into the role with renowned thoughtfulness. "FIFA has a responsibility to ensure football is developing at the same rate everywhere," the former Arsenal boss told "There is a demand there for the organisation of competitions, coaching development, player development – and that’s what we’re trying to do."
