Young Soccer Fan invades pitch to meet Neymar

A young South Africa soccer fan invades pitch after Brazil beat South Africa, and with the help of several Brazil players, posed for pictures and was hoisted up by the Brazilian players.

The game in Soweto was easily won by the Brazilians by a 5-0 score.  As the young boy tried to get close young soccer fan invades the pitch to meet Neymarto the Brazilian players, security members stopped him and were apparently going to lead him back to the stands.

Neymar, who plays for Brazil when he’s not competing with Barcelona (he signed with Barcelona last May), intercepted the security team and carried the boy back to meet Brazil team members.  A smart phone was produced and several photos of the young boy and the Brazilian stars were taken.

From watching the video it’s unclear if the players had more fun or if the young fan did.  Despite South Africa being shut out, it seems at least one South African fan went home happy that night.
