Security guard at the Cotton Bowl would not be a desirable job to have Wednesday morning.
The legendary stadium played host Tuesday night to an international friendly between Real Madrid and AS Roma — a game that included a lengthy delay caused when a seemingly endless parade of fans began streaming onto the field in the 87th minute.
Though security accosted some immediately, many of the field invaders seemed to have been given free reign to jog around and mingle with players. One even had the time to stop and take a selfie with Madrid’s Isco during the commotion.
“We have a lot of support here in America for our players,” Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti said after the game, via The Dallas Morning News. “Of course, it’s better to play an entire game without suspension.”
Ancelotti’s squad took the loss in the International Champions Cup tilt, with a 58th-minute goal by Roma captain Francesco Totti providing the only storing.
