Sometimes pitch invaders just want to celebrate with the players too.

There's no better moment than when you see your team score.

Well... maybe there is (especially if it's in a friendly) - but a young Chilean fan's emotions got the better of him as he couldn't stop himself from running onto the pitch to celebrate Alexis Sanchez's goal with the Chile team.

The boy sprints towards the players after the Manchester United man scored his 41st international goal for La Roja in a 4-1 friendly win at home to Honduras.

But unfortunately for the fan, he doesn't actually make it - as you can see below.

The kid falls flat on his back and proceeds to slide tackle the group of Chilean players (two-footed and right in front of the referee as well!).

Luckily, Sanchez took it well and got the supporter involved in the celebrations.

He even made the young fan's match-day experience even better by inviting him into the Chilean dressing room after the match for a photograph.

It's not the first time we've seen Sanchez celebrated with a young fan.

He seems to get a lot of stick at times but the 29-year-old is certainly one of the good eggs in football.
