A duck invaded the pitch as Real Salt Lake won big against Zlatan Ibrahimović’s LA Galaxy at the Rio Tinto Stadium in Utah on Sunday.
With the scores level at 1-1 late in the first-half, the bird suddenly appeared as the home side prepared to take a corner.
The match was paused for almost five minutes while the duck gave four stewards and one of the Salt Lake players the runaround.

It evaded capture but was eventually directed off the field of play by the stadium officials.
More footage and even a highlights reel was provided during coverage of the MLS clash:
