Dog runs out onto field during soccer game, befriends goalie


Published in Cats & Dogs News

(UPI) A Europa League soccer game in Macedonia was interrupted when a dog ran out onto the field and made friends with a goalkeeper.

The Thursday night match between Skopje-based FK Vardar and Norwegian team Rosenborg was interrupted during the 74th minute when a dog ran out onto the field as a player was lining up a penalty kick.

Vardar goalkeeper Filip Gacevski attempted to help chase the canine away from the pitch, but instead ended up succumbing to the canine's charms and giving it a belly rub as it rolled over onto its back.

The dog's on-field adventure was caught on camera by a spectator and posted to Twitter.

Security staff swarmed the field in an attempt to capture the dog, but it gave them the slip and eventually ran off on its own.

The game ended in a 1-1 tie.
