Neymar Looks After Child Pitch-Invader, Takes Pictures with Team as Brazil Train

Mark PattersonUK Staff WriterJune 9, 2016

Brazil held an open training session in preparation for the 2014 World Cup, and an over-excited child managed to end up on the field with his heroes.

As the footage above shows, Neymar took it upon himself to make sure that the boy didn't get escorted swiftly away.

Instead, he gave him a hug and a chance to meet some of the players. Neymar also stopped for a photo.

If the pressure is building on Brazil to win in front of their home crowd, they aren't showing yet.
