Manchester City thrashed AC Milan in a 5-1 friendly at Heinz Field on Sunday afternoon, but it was two pitch invaders who became the story of the match.
The two fans crossed onto the pitch in 90th minute and approached Italian footballer and AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli looking for a selfie. Balotelli seemed like a good sport and played it cool, allowing the fans to take a snapshot before they were escorted away by security.

The two fans seemed to have benign intentions, but rushing the field in any sport can lead to serious consequences. But that was apparently not so, according to one of the fan's own Twitter response after the incident.
For the people who think that we got arrested. We got away with nothing. They didn't give us anything
