This friendly German Shepherd interrupted a Swedish women’s match last Saturday. He briefly scampered around the penalty area during the match between LdB Malmo and Sky Blue FC, before giving it a bit of the William Gallas treatment.

The dog stubbornly refused to leave the pitch, despite one official attempting to forcibly throw him off the pitch. But the canine pitch invade made it clear he would be more amenable to the softly, softly approach as he repeatedly offered himself for belly-rubs.

He was eventually take off the pitch in a rather pitiful headlock by two of the players!
