Two fans rushed onto the pitch in the closing minutes of A.C. Milan's 5-1 friendly loss to Manchester City at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh on Sunday. 

In a selfie-crazed world, the fans were looking for a selfie with Italian star Mario Balotelli. Surprisingly, Balotelli obliged before security could reach them. Here's how Pro Soccer Talk described it:

Here are a couple of videos from social media of how the process all unfolded:
