A judge hearing the case of Alfie Evans has asked doctors if "other options" are possible to allow his family to take him home after life support was withdrawn.
Football fans at the Liverpool Roma match are being urged to take part in a touching tribute to Alfie Evans in the 23 minute.
The fight to save the life of 23-month-old Alfie Evans in England closely mirrors that of Charlie Gard, the 11-month-old who died after being removed from life support after Gard's parent's endured hellish legal battles with a London Children's hospital and multiple courts.
Alfie is in a "semi-vegetative state" as the result of a degenerative neurological condition that doctors have been unable to definitively identify.
The hospital has said further treatment would be not only "futile" but also "unkind and inhumane".
The parents sought to bring Evans to the Vatican's Bambino Gesu Pediatric Hospital for treatment, but the current hospital refused to grant the transfer. He has continued to breathe on his own, doing so for at least six hours before hospital staff allowed him to have an oxygen mask.
She said medics at Alder Hey Children's Hospital in Liverpool had stopped providing "ventilation support" to Alfie shortly after 9pm on Monday.
Without saying so, Judge Hayden and doctors at Alder Hey Children's Hospital essentially compared Alfie's parents to a criminal who had committed a significant crime.
Alfie's parents' lawyer, Paul Diamond of the Christian Legal Centre's Standing Counsel, is asking the judge to allow Alfie to leave Alder Hey and travel to the Rome hospital. They said that they wouldn't discuss confidential details about Alfie's medical condition, but that British doctors' guidelines call for ending treatment if the treatment is either unlikely to extend the child's life "much longer", or might prolong life "but will cause the child unacceptable pain and suffering".

The case drew worldwide media attention with the Vatican becoming involved and even US President Donald Trump tweeting his support.
A petition asking the Queen to intervene and help save brain-damaged Alfie Evans has gathered more than 110,000 signatures in just over two days.
At the end of a highly charged three-hour hearing, the judge ordered Alfie's parents to engage with doctors and create a palliative care plan that could involve moving him off the paediatric intensive care unit where he has spent the past 16 months of his life.
Alfie and his family have been supported by Christian charities and a band of supporters known as "Alfie's Army" that have protested regularly outside of the hospital. "Wanting to withdraw treatment so that he will die, the medical authorities have taken Alfie to the High Court".
Evans met Pope Francis in the Vatican last Wednesday after several statements of support made by the pope. Take, for example, the story of five-year-old Ashya King, whose parents were jailed for "abducting" him in 2014 from a British hospital to take him for cancer treatment elsewhere in Europe.
A spokesperson for Alder Hey Children's NHS Foundation Trust said; "We do understand that this is a very distressing time for Alfie's parents and realise that there is a great deal of public interest in this matter".
