I am trying to understand what "make us dream" exactly means because a friend of mine asked me what it means in our language. Actually I know what it means but I just couldn't make a good translation for him.

It is a banner of Liverpool FC and the title of a book written by a fan as well.

How would you explain or paraphrase "make us dream" in English?

The meaning of "dream" is the second in Cambridge to imagine something that you would like to happen:

The banner is saying, from the point of view of the fans, "(By playing very good football) make us dream (that we might be able to win the championship)"

The "make us" is used instead of "let us" as it is more forceful and more hopeful.
