Argentina held a public training on Wendesday in front of 5,000 noisy fans, playing some entertaining football-tennis and showing off some skills.
They were in for a surprise though as some fans managed to evade security and run onto the pitch to meet the players, mostly Messi. One of them, wearing red, kneeled down to "polish" his shoes, then gave him a hug. Lionel, amused by the gesture, gave him his training sweater.
The bigger surprise which made headlines was a Ronaldinho look-alike who also ran to greet Leo. His hands were all bleedy as he had scratched them on the fence while making it onto the pitch. Upon seeing him, all the players laughed as he was dragged out by officials and away from the players.
Fun times at the Belo Horizonte Independencia stadium as the Albiceleste train in good spirits ahead of their World Cup opener against Bosnia on Sunday. Though i hope security could take extra measures from now on to prevent such pitch invasions to ensure the safety of the players.
