Training Ground Invaders Part of Brazil’s Brilliant Copa

Despite the concerns over protests, this has been a wonderful World Cup so far because of the Brazilians and their love of football. It seems each day, training sessions are interrupted by pitch invaders wanting to get close to their heroes, whether it’s Lionel Messi or the Seleção and the players seem happy to oblige.

The latest was this little boy overcome with tears when he meets David Luiz who happily gives him the shirt off his back.

Elsewhere the host cities and Copacabana beach in Rio have become meccas for impromptu street parties from all the visiting nations while Mexican fans celebrated outside the team hotel and even convinced the players to join in.
