During the pregame ceremony of the Euro 2016 semifinal matchup between Portugal and Wales, a couple of eager kids crashed the ceremony and slithered their way into meeting Cristiano Ronaldo. They were ecstatic.

They didn’t crash it — they were already on the field as volunteers for the pregame events, but they got a bit too involved, you could say.

One kid badgered Ronaldo into a selfie before running into the tunnel in absolute glee. Another managed to sneak into Portugal’s pregame team photo.

Stadium security has been a bit of a topic throughout this year’s Euro, but it’s hard to get too mad about this.

Meanwhile, Portugal won 2–0 and advanced to Sunday’s final.
