Here Is The Punishment Given To The Kid Who Ran On The Pitch To Take A Selfie With Memphis Depay

A good punishment has been given to a kid who broke the stadium rules during a match between two countries a few days ago.

In the World Cup qualifying match between Netherlands and Montenegro five days ago, where Memphis scored a brace, netting his 30th international goal for his national side, a remarkable, but silly moment occurred, as a young Netherlands fan invaded into the pitch to take a selfie with Barcelona player Memphis Depay just before the end of the match.

Due to the Covid-19 rules, supporters are prohibited from entering the pitch and coming in contact with the players, but despite supporters being banned from entering the field, the kid walked to Memphis and took a selfie with the player.

The kid went unpunished as reports as per RTLnieuws says the kid has received a 5-year stadium ban and a fine of €100.

I know it was just a picture, but I think this is the right decision. It will stop this from reoccurring in the future.
