Russia: Friendly pitch invader gets Carlos’ autograph (+video)
Former Brazil international and FIFA World Cup winner Roberto Carlos must have been asked for his autograph more times than he can remember throughout his illustrious career. However the most unlikely place he would’ve expected to be asked would be on a football pitch whilst the match is in progress but that’s exactly what happened this weekend. His new club Anzhi Makhachkala were away to FK Volga in the city of Nizhny Novgorod when an overexcited fan ran on to the pitch with a pen and paper and was ecstatic to come off the pitch with the item he’d always wanted, no doubt cementing Carlos’ legendary status even further in the man’s eyes. It turned out to be a good day in general for Anzhi who won 2-1 thanks to goals from Jan Holenda and Shamil Lakhiyalov in their come-from-behind victory.
