The Italian defender Bonucci was one of the best performers during the match and showed his appreciation for the supporters at Wembley as he charged over and celebrated with the diehard fans.
The steward appeared to believe Bonucci was a fan trying to enter the pitch, which was understandable considering the pandemonium in the stadium.
But after Bonucci appeared shocked at the initial denial the pair quickly shared a laugh and the Italian hugged the steward after the harmless mistake.
Fans lost their mind over the bizarre moment, which was captured on camera.
