Watch: The Incredible Moment A Kangaroo Invades Football Game In Australia

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.

If don't think Kangaroo football sounds absolutely incredibly than I'm afraid we can't be friends.

Rumours suggest that the 'roo is on the plane to help out Bert van Marwijk and the rest of the Socceroos in the World Cup, where the Aussies still have a chance of qualifying for the knockout phase.

The boomer isn't the first animal to interrupt a game in recent times, as that happened during Spain's game with Iran on Wednesday.

Abird landed on the pitch at the Kazan Stadium and play was temporarily halted. But in a wonderful gesture, Gerard Pique and Isco stepped in, gently picking up the animal and bringing it off the field of play to safety.

Global animal rights organisation PETA have said they would be sending two 'Hero to Animals' awards, complete with framed certifications, to Spain's training camp in Russia for the quick-thinking pair.
