In a video now trending across social media platforms, a dog can be seen scoring a super header during a football match in Chile. It is being reported that while the Deportivo San Miguel de Rio Viejo were preparing to take a free-kick, they were joined for the same by a dog. An Alsatian was roaming freely in the opponent's defence and even the opponents seemingly had it unguarded not aware of how its header will find the back of the net.
As the ball came floating in, it missed all the players but landed on the dog's head and deflected out of the goalkeeper's reach and into the goal. Everyone around was left impressed and the video soon made its way on social media. The video has received over two million views after being shared for the first time on Sunday and everyone seems to be loving it as the dog had a significant role to play in the goal.
Check out the video here:
"Timed that run to perfection. Got a great future ahead of him," a user commented on the video with another one comparing it to Manchester United’s "Holy Trinity" under Sir Matt Busby as the user wrote, "Denis Paw-esque finish."
Yet another segment of the fans took the conversation to the next level by indicating that the VAR would have ruled the goal an off-side. A user even shared an edited still from the video to show how the dog was indeed offside when it scored the goal. Some even used the Premier League graphic on the image to highlight that it was indeed an off-side. "Yeah he’s drifted behind a bit early there definitely,” a Twitter user named Jack Thomas wrote adding to the fun with yet another saying, " “Miles off. Smacks of inexperience. Got a lot of potential with that move though."
It is not the first time that a dog has interrupted a football in the year, earlier an amateur match also had to be stopped after a dog managed to clear the goal line. It was Scottish side Fergusile’s forward Ross Hamilton who had seemingly slotted it past the goalkeeper but was denied by a dog who had somehow managed to reach there.
