Video: Fortuna Dusseldorf v Hertha Berlin play-off held up for 20mins after premature pitch invasion
Fortuna Dusseldorf eventually won promotion to the Bundesliga last night. But the final whistle in their promotion/relegation play-off with Hertha Berlin was delayed for 20mins when joyous Fortuna fans ran onto the pitch before the final whistle.
They thought it was all over, but there was still just over a minute of injury time left to play.
The celebrations were in full swing though, including this chap attempting to rip up the pitch to bag himself a souvenir:
Eventually the crowd were removed from the pitch, the formality of the final 70secs played out and Fortuna’s promotion confirmed.
