Brazilian soccer player rescues cutest invader

Brazilian Soccer Player Rescues Cutest Invader

Sometimes being cute can take you a long way -- at least that was the case for one little boy who ran out on the field during the soccer game between Brazil and South Africa. HLN says he's now an Internet sensation.



'After Brazil's win over South Africa, the world's cutest fan ran onto the field and made a run for the Brazilian national team but was apprehended by security.'

That's when Neymar, one of the world's most popular soccer players, stepped in.

Neymar took him from security and brought him to meet the team.

'Suddenly it turned into this kids best moment of his young sweet life. Look at the other side of this, it might be the greatest photo,' 'GMA' reported.

It seems Neymar enjoyed the encounter, too. He posted photos of himself with the boy on Instagram and wrote about the joys of making a child smile.

A writer for NBC says, 'It really was one of those moments which shows that despite their superstar status, soccer players are still humans too.'

No word on the name or age of this invader-turned-superstar, but we're guessing this was one night he'll never forget.

I despize Neymar the football player for things he has done on the field and his cockiness. However, this video has shown that he has another side to him. Well done....you have made a child smile and that will buy you some "goodwill" from me....I wont shout at the tv when you are playing as much. May this good deed be an omen of things to come from you....just not against Real Madrid.

Can the monitor of comments stop the ads about ppl making money on the puter? Has nothing to do with the stories and I find them irritating. Thanks for letting me vent. :)

I can UNDERSTAND and IDENTIFY with you here - I think some of THESE comments are completely IRRELEVANT, and just want people to think about SOMETHING ELSE.
