Costa Rica Sports News – Sometimes running onto the soccer field to meet your idols is not always the best idea. This was found out by a fan recently during the Costa Rica/South Africa friendly.

On Thursday night in Costa Rica as Los Ticos faced South Africa, the ugly side was evident as one person saw his chance for fame and it ended with a painful tackle by one of the stewards.
Real Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas, who took Madrid trying to offload him to Manchester United in perfect stride, comforted and took pictures with the sobbing pitch-invader, who was likely both hurt physically and coping with the reality of his mistake.
