Neymar helps a pitch invader kid meeting the Brazilian Team
Neymar repeated the gesture he had already had a few months ago when Brazil¬†took on and defeated South Africa by 5-0 in a friendly international (March of 2014), but this time he has done it in Brazilian soil, during his national team’s practice session.
Yelling and shouting were listened throughout the whole training session at the Granja Comary this past¬†Sunday, and Neymar was naturally the player¬†drawing more attention from the crowd. At the end of the team practice, a little kid named Bernardo Ramos, who is a supporter of Fluminense in Brazil, decided to invade the pitch in order to meet his idols. As it usually happens in these kind of situations and regardless of the¬†age of the pitch invader, security personnel are ordered to block any intent of people getting close to the fans and therefore, the little kid was intercepted and was started being¬†walked his way out of the training ground…
That was when Neymar intervened… The Barcelona star ran towards one of the sidelines where the little kid had been sent to and¬†asked for the kid to be allowed to step onto the pitch in order to¬†play some football with him and take some photos with the Brazilian National Team players that were still around in the practice session. Besides Neymar, Brazil‘s captain Thiago Silva, Luiz Gustavo, Fred, Marcelo and David Luiz, all stood there on the pitch to welcome the little Bernardo and the make the kid’s day by posing in a few photos with him.
