Standing strong alone has paid off for the one supporter cheering on Swedish football team Brommapojkarna in an away match against Mjallby.

Dressed in the team's red-and-black shirt, 57-year-old Anders Ung was the only person in the section for visiting fans as Brommapojkarna lost the match 4-2 on Sunday.

His unflinching support so impressed Brommapojkarna midfielder Bojan Djordjic, a former youth player at Manchester United, that he offered to buy Ung a trip to Stockholm so he could watch a home game.

Ung, who lives in southern Sweden, told newspaper Aftonbladet that he was humbled by the offer but would prefer to pay his own fare.

Brommapojkarna has successful youth squads but hasn't made an impact in Sweden's top division and doesn't have a large fan base.
