- A cute dog went walkies and found its way onto a football pitch on Thursday.
- The husky befriended a goalkeeper, got its belly-rubbed, and then ran away from match-day security.
- Yes, we have video footage.
A cute dog invaded a football pitch and caused a ‘paws in play’ during Macedonian side FK Vardar and Norway’s Rosenborg’s Europa League match on Thursday evening.
With the high-profile European game precariously-poised at 1-1, the husky somehow found it’s way onto the field in the 73rd minute.
The dog brought play to a halt, stopped to have its belly rubbed by the Vardar goalkeeper, and then ran away from match-day stewards.
Before long, security managed to usher the rebellious hound down the tunnel so the game in Macedonia could resume.
You can watch video footage of the incident here.
