Pitch invader gets all huggy at Club World Cup Semi-Final

An affectionate pitch invader evaded security at the FIFA Club World Cup semi-final meeting of Real Madrid and Kashima Antlers for long enough to hug it out with Madrid stars Karim Benzema and Marcelo. Footage posted to Twitter by New Zealand native Brandon Clarke shows the fan racing onto the pitch at the Zayed Sports City Stadium in Abu Dhabi during the December 19 game. He slips at the feet of Benzema, before giving him a hug. Then he races off towards Marcelo, and hugs him too. Security guards eventually break the pair’s embrace and escort the invader off the pitch. Madrid defeated the Antlers 3-1. They will face Al Ain FC in the final on December 22.
