An international women’s friendly match had to be brought to a standstill when an eager dog invaded the pitch.
The hilarious moment happened on June 26 in the match between Chile and Venezuela at La Granja stadium in Curico.
With the scored tied 0-0 in the 36th minute, video footage showed the black dog strolling on the touchline as photographers stroked it.
Moments later, the Venzeuela team beat Chile’s press at the back before winning a throw and the dog wasted no time in snatching the opportunity to enter the pitch.
It demanded and got pats and belly rubs from Chilean goalkeeper Christiane Endler before getting the same treatment from the referee.
The animal then ran the length of the pitch as it refused to be removed. It took two players and what looked to be a ball-boy to eventually get the dog off.
