A soccer game between Turkish team Galatasaray and Germany’s VfR Aalen was brought to a halt this past weekend after a pair of unlikely players darted onto the field. Two Labrador Retriever pups entered the field about 52 minutes into the game playing tug-of-war with what appears to be a plastic bag.
The whistle was blown and the match came to a standstill as the players watched the pups in awe. The dogs even stopped by to say ‘hello’ to player 33, Cidimar Rodrigues da Silva.
The crowd chanted while officials attempted to catch the dogs and bring them off the field.
After the adorable interruption, VfR Aalen went on to win the match with a final score of 1-0.
