VIDEO: Dog tackles player from behind in Argentinian lower-league clash

Toppled one of the defenders.


A dog tackled a player from behind during Central Córdoba’s clash with Sportivo Las Parejas in the third-level of the football league in Argentina last week.

The barking pitch invader interrupted the Torneo Federal A match twice and twice had to be carried off the field before play could resume.

Initially it chased after the ball as some of the players continued with a futile attempt to keep the game going, before toppling one of the defenders.

The second time saw one of the goalies forced to intervene.

A 1-0 win for Central Córdoba at Estadio Alfredo Terrera leaves them top of the division.
