Interrupting a soccer game can be serious (and violent) business for both athletes and fans alike.
Thankfully, when the PaulistÃ£o championships were interrupted, fights didn’t erupt in the stands. Even though the teams were tied 0-0, when a frightened dog ran onto the field, everyone was on the dog’s side. Learning he was in the wrong place at the wrong time, he ran away from the players and security trying to corral him.
Then suddenly, the Oeste and Capivariano teams, both from SÃ£o Paulo, Brazil, worked together to help bring this dog to the help he needed. See for yourself, and get ready to smile!
Thanks to Alex Santos of Capivariano, who scooped him up, this adorable dog lived out a dream most soccer fans have: getting carried off the field in celebratory fashion by their favorite player.
