Argentina fan storms Lionel Messi, gets hugs and his jersey signed

BY foxsports • June 22, 2016

Argentina's match against the USMNT in the Copa America semifinals on Tuesday was never in doubt, with Argentina scoring in the third minute on its way to beating the United States 4-0.

It was complete domination, highlighted by this brilliant Lionel Messi free kick that made him Argentina's all-time leading goal scorer.

Apparently that wasn't enough excitement for one Argentina fan, though. Before the start of the second half, this guy thought it was a good idea to rush onto the field and storm Messi, hoping to get a hug and his jersey signed.

Messi, being the good sport that he is, obliged even though it took a frighteningly long time for security to arrive and chase the fan away from Messi.

This is a bad idea, guys. There are better ways to get your jersey signed.
