By the 90th minute of the International Champions Cup match between Manchester City and Milan in Pittsburgh, there wasn't a whole lot of excitement left. City went up 4-0 in the rain-soaked trumped up friendly at the mostly empty Heinz Field before the 30th minute. After a thunderstorm delayed the start of the second half, the score was up to 5-1 by the hour mark. So to bring an extra element to the final moments of the match, two men in Milan shirts decided to invade the pitch and get a unique souvenir.

The duo were able to run more than half the length of the pitch to Mario Balotelli, who entered the match after halftime. With stadium security in no rush to stop them, the Milan fans took a selfie with the striker, who obliged them with smirk. 

A subsequent tweet from one of the invaders added that neither of them were arrested and they "got away with nothing." Except for a fantastic picture, of course.
