Former Manchester United goalkeeper Mark Bosnich took the unusual step of proposing to his partner from Red Square in Moscow via a Twitter video.
Bosnich, 46, is in Russia for the World Cup, where Australia – the nation he made 17 appearances for – were eliminated in the group stage.
But the former Socceroos, Chelsea and Aston Villa goalkeeper obviously still had important matters to attend to.
In a video posted on Twitter on Sunday, Bosnich wished his partner Sara a happy birthday, before asking her to marry him.
Good evening/morning..this is a special birthday wish to my beautiful partner Sara..wish I was there..and a special request..love you.xmb July 8, 2018
Cleary, Bosnich thinks Sara is also a keeper.
