Video: Two AC Milan fans invaded a pitch during a game and got a selfie with Mario Balotelli

A pretty ballsy move by these two lads...

It seems that getting a photo with a professional footballer is getting easier and easier, this Kerryman proved during the World Cup in Brazil. It's easy enough to grab someone on the street or at pitch-side but getting a picture with a player on the pitch during a game is the jackpot and these two AC Milan fans struck gold.

The curly haired duo rushed out of the crowd during Milan's pre-season friendly with Manchester City, ran the length of the pitch, whipped out their phones and got a selfie with no other than Mario Balotelli...

To be fair, it took serious bravery/stupidity to do something like that so you'd think they'd both actually look at the camera for the photo but no, the guy on the right has the look of a man who is about to get smacked by a giant security guard.

We love Mario's grin and his perfect stare straight into the camera, what a pro...

Cheers to Luke Wilson (not the actor) who tweeted this to us earlier.
