20 FC Basel fans invade the pitch at halftime to have a game of football [Video]

Saturday was cup day in Switzerland, and FC Basel safely negotiated their way past minnows CS Italien with a 4-0 away win.

The match offered debuts for FC Basel’s summer signings Walter Samuel, Ahmed Hamoudi und Michael Goncalves, while the goals were scored by Matias Delgado, Breel Embolo, Fabian Frei und Shkelzen Gashi.

Away from the action itself, the strangest occurrence happened at halftime when 20 Basel fans invaded the pitch.

The fans proceeded to have a massive game of football on the CS Italien pitch which continued for several minutes, before the home tannoy called for the fans to exit the pitch.

Somewhat surprisingly, the simple request over the loudspeaker got the Basel fans to retreat.
