VIDEO: Dog knocks over academy player during home training session

Full-blooded tackle from behind.

A SUSA academy player was knocked over by her dog while doing some training in the garden.

Stephanie Schubert was dribbling the ball around cones, minding her own business when the dog started running towards her.

Tackling the youngster attached to the Women’s Premier Soccer League side from New York, the pet retrieved the ball while she fell flat on her face.

Schubert takes the incident in good spirits though and bursts out laughing before the dog walks off with a plastic cone in its mouth.
