Faced another tragedy

In 2013, the family had to yet again face another tragedy when their home burnt down. The fire destroyed all their belongings, leaving them with nothing. 

Since they were immigrants, they did not have enough savings to rebuild their lives again. 

They received enormous help from their neighbors, who helped them look for a new home and donated clothes, furniture, appliances, and many other things.

This tragic event became a source of motivation to Eduardo as his father, Celestino, looked at him and said, 

Eduardo, now you are the hope of the family, the one who has to lift it up.

The family of seven currently lives in Madrid. Eduardo credits his parents for his successful football career. 

His mother, Sofia, encouraged him to be a football player, and his father supported him.
