Brazil made easy work of South Africa, winning the Johannesburg friendly 5-0 with Neymar bagging a hat trick and even changing kits at halftime (home kit in the first half, new away kit in the second). The best moment of the match didn't come until the end of it, though. The world's tiniest pitch invader attempted to make a dash for the players, but was stopped by security. Neymar saw this and intervened, bringing the boy out to meet the Brazilian squad, who hoisted him up into the air and putting a giant smile on his face.
Neymar then took a picture with the new coolest kid in the world...
And that's how you make a fan for life. Here's the video of how the whole thing unfolded:
UPDATE: Globoesporte managed to track down the boy, who they identify as seven-year-old Ayo Dosumu.
"I felt very happy," Ayo said of the experience.
"My son is now an idol," his father, Shola, added. "I didn't even realize when he ran out.Then I had to go and get him. It was a great thrill."
Stadium security also tried to stop Shola as he went after his son, but David Luiz told them to let him go, which was another thrill for Shola, who told Globo that he's a Chelsea fan.
