A player tripped over a dog invading the pitch during a match in Liga IV, the fourth tier of the Romanian football league.

The unfortunate defender was tracking back to nullify the run of an opposition attacker when he collided with the pooch, sending him sprawling.

While he sits nursing a minor injury, the dog trots off in search of further adventure.
