Young boy joins in with Brazil team’s post-match celebrations
Brazilian superstar striker Neymar celebrates with boy fan
A young football pitch invader got more than he hoped for after Brazil’s friendly match against South Africa on Wednesday.
The boy, no older than ten, ran on to the field following Brazil’s 5-0 victory, although officials moved quickly to take the child back to the stands.
However, Brazilian superstar striker Neymar, who had just achieved the feat of scoring three goals in one game, intervened and held the child up in his arms, taking him over to his teammates to join in on the victory celebrations.
The boy may be the only South African fan to be going home happy, after the home side’s crushing defeat by the Confederations cup champions ahead of the 2014 FIFA World Cup football tournament.
