Neymar introduces pitch invading kid to Brazil team

Something wonderful happened after Brazil's 5-0 win against South Africa last night.

When the young South African boy, above, invaded the pitch at full-time and began to be dragged off by stewards, Barcelona forward Neymar took him under his wing, introducing him to Brazil's superstars and posing for photos.

So, the moral of the story is... if you're a young boy and would like all of your dreams to come true then try invading the pitch.

Rodgers pestering Scolari to include Coutinho in Brazil World Cup squad

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has revealed that he is pestering his friend Luiz Felipe Scolari to include Philippe Coutinho in his Brazil World Cup squad.

The two know each other from their time at Chelsea and Scolari has even asked Rodgers to keep an eye on all the Brazilians playing in the Premier League.

Philippe is such a talent now, he is an ­absolute joy to watch, and I have been on to Scolari constantly about him because I know Luiz from my Chelsea days.

Brazil have such an array of talent in Neymar, Oscar and Bernard, but Scolari knows all about Coutinho because I have been on about him and Lucas.

Felipe has asked me to keep an eye on the Brazil boys and give any feedback - even ones from other clubs - but I'm only concerned about ours here and, for me, Philippe is brilliant.
