A dog in Brazil apparently tried out for the Oeste Futebol Clube and Capivariano Futebol Clube during a soccer match last month. He didn’t make the team.
Following in the paw steps of his Brazilian friend, another dog decided to run the field during a soccer match between Venezuela’s Deportivo Tachira and Mexico’s Pumas in Venezuela, reports ESPN FC. He looked as if he was trying out for the team.
The dog showed off some fancy footwork as he ran through the players who were trying to catch up to him. His speed was impressive, but his vertical jump was off the hook! He could have easily served as a header during corner kicks. But his tryout was short-lived.
Unfortunately, the dog wasn’t aware of the rules, and was red-carded and ejected for charging the goalie. His infraction was so severe that he got sanctioned by a FIFA (the international governing body of football) official who carried him off the field.
Perhaps the two dogs can team up with a few Americans, a bloke or two from Manchester United and a striker from Argentina and make a run for the 2016 FIFA World Cup in December. But first they have to learn the rules.
