In this YouTube video, security personnel can be seen preventing a young fan from approaching a group of soccer players. The players decide to intervene, and the young boy was soon celebrating with the team.

The match was between Brazil and South Africa, and Brazil won 5-0.

Brazilian player Neymar literally pulled the boy from a security guard’s hands, and his actions have reportedly resonated with fans.

A twitter picture shows the ecstatic fan.
