Hector Bellerin was making dreams come true on Saturday evening after the Arsenal defender snapped a selfie with some young South African fans.

The Gunners star is part of Spain’s Under-21 set-up after being overlooked for la Roja‘s senior squad for their 2018 World Cup qualifiers this week.

The 21-year-old left Arsenal supporters sweating over his fitness on Friday amid reports that Bellerin had suffered an ankle injury in training.

And the full-back was the substituted in the closing minutes of Spain Under-21’s 3-0 victory over San Marino on Thursday night.

However, Bellerin has since trained with his Under-21 team-mates to quash talk of a potential ankle problem for one of Arsene Wenger’s key players.

And the Arsenal star posted the above photo on his Snapchat story (@hectorbellerin) on Saturday evening with some South African supporters.
