Three supporters were able to storm the field and run up to United ace Fernandes without being stopped by security.

The youngsters looked to be delighted standing in the playmaker’s presence.

And they instantly produced phones for a round of selfies.

Fernandes appeared to look a bit shocked that local security were doing nothing to intervene.

And he ended up posing for photos before the invaders exited, allowing the game to restart.

Despite having no Cristiano Ronaldo, who was missing through suspension, Portugal were still able to field a strong XI also including Liverpool’s Diogo Jota, as well as Man City trio Joao Cancelo, Bernardo Silva and Ruben Dias.

And Fernandes was quickly involved as he assisted Silva for Portugal’s first goal after 26 minutes.

RB Leipzig striker Andre Silva doubled Portugal’s lead just five minutes later after being played in by Jota.

And the Liverpool winger ended up on the scoresheet himself in the 75th minute after being teed up by Cancelo.

It means Portugal have won all three of their games in the international break, which also included a 2-1 qualifier against Ireland and a 3-1 friendly over Qatar.

The game against Ireland was extra special as Ronaldo became the all-time leading international goalscorer with a late double to clinch victory.
