Young fan goes viral after invading Leeds pitch before being taken out by ball boy during friendly

A young fan goes viral over the weekend after invading the Leeds pitch before seemingly being taken out by ball boy during a friendly.

The Whites played out a mid-season friendly against Real Sociedad at Elland Road, getting prepared for the Premier League‘s return on Boxing Day.

It could be a tough one as they get a visit of Manchester City, with a second friendly to play out against Ligue 1 side AS Monaco on Wednesday night.

Real Sociedad currently sit third in La Liga, and despite expecting a test for Leeds, it was the hosts that won the game 2-1.

Goals from Pascal Struijk and Rodrigo saw Leeds come from behind to win their second successive friendly.

The first half was fiercely contested, with set-piece chances at both ends. Leeds won the first, but couldn’t make much from it. However, the visitors took theirs and led early.

Brais Mendez, the top scorer for Sociedad this season, turned provider when he sent a dangerous cross right onto Martin Zubimendi’s head. The ball was powerfully tackled by the defender to go into the top corner.

Marsch’s team responded quick and in a spectacular fashion as Marc Roca gathered the ball at the box’s edge and laid it off to Struijk, who then smashed the ball into the bottom corner to even the score.

Just a few minutes into the second half, Rodrigo was calmly able to slot into the back of Rodrigo’s net after excellent build-up play by Gelhardt and Gnonto.
