VIDEO: Dog on pitch in Brasileirão game between CSA and Cruzeiro

Eludes pursuers and holds up play.


A dog invaded the pitch and held up play at the Trapichão during Sunday’s 1-1 draw between CSA and Cruzeiro in the Brazilian Série A.

Fred put visitors Cruzeiro ahead after 11 minutes, with Apodi equalising for the home side deep into stoppage time to ensure a share of the spoils.


But arguably the highlight of the match was the cameo from a canine interloper, who eluded attempts at capture before eventually leaving the field of play of his own accord.

The result leaves CSA second from bottom in Brazil’s top flight, with Cruzeiro in 16th place.
