Fan invades the pitch, gets shirt signed by Messi, as Argentina thrash Hong Kong 7-0

Gonzalo Higuain and Nicolás Gaitán were among the goalscorers.

MOST PITCH INVADERS can expect a rugby tackle from a security guard at best, however a fan today at the end of the Argentina-Hong Kong match escaped this fate while also encountering a footballing legend.

After running onto the pitch, Lionel Messi didn’t impede the spectator, but instead decided to sign his jersey for him.

It’s certainly a far cry from the Brian Clough school of dealing with misbehaving fans…
