Watch: The Incredible Moment A Kangaroo Invades Football Game In Australia
Pitch invasions are rather common in football, though normally it's a 47-year old absolute 'yer da' trying to get the spotlight by running onto the playing surface.
Sometimes animals too enjoy having a dabble, with there being a few notable occasions where cats and dogs have managed to sneak on.
But a quite remarkable situation unfolded in Australia, where a Kangaroo hopped onto the field of play during a game between Belconnen United and Canberra in the second tier.

After bouncing around for a while, the buck tried its hand at goalkeeping for a bit during the half-time, saving two tame shots but still looking more competent than Willy Caballero and Loris Karius.
Reports say that the game was delayed for half an hour before the marsupial eventually decided to clear off and let the action get back under way.
