Young South African Fan Runs Onto Soccer Field; Neymar Loves It (Video)

This might be the only time a field trespasser was embraced with open arms rather than wrapped up and driven into the ground.

Immediately after Brazil routed South Africa 5-0 in an international exhibition soccer game Wednesday night, one very young South Africa fan somehow made his way down onto the field.

The youngster initially was snatched up by what appeared to be members of the South African coaching staff, but he caught the eye of Brazilian star Neymar, who carried him over to snap a few pictures and celebrate with the winning team.

The kid should probably refrain from running onto fields in the future, but this one time made for a pretty cool moment.

Check it out in the video below.
