VIDEO: Man builds football pitch in fish tank

Chaotic match ensues.


A man in China built a fish tank with a football pitch along the bottom for his goldfish to strut their stuff.

28-year-old Yang Tianxin, who lives the in city of Jieyang, is said to be a fan of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo despite not following the sport closely.

In this clip, we see the goldfish breeder’s aquarium, where the creatures are staging a slightly chaotic yet compelling little match of their own.

As they crowd around the ball and jostle for possession, one of them eventually bundles it over the line – however, we don’t see how they manage to retrieve it.
