Apparently, man’s best friend has a nose for goal.
A dog scored a goal during a five-on-five soccer game in Argentina recently, proving that soccer fever has gripped every part of the South American country.
The unnamed pooch wandered onto the field as a player dribbled down the left wing. The player then crossed the ball to the back post, where the dog was standing. Like a natural, the dog headed the ball into the goal and confidently walked back toward the halfway line.
Argentina has long been known as a breeding ground for instinctive goal scorers. That won’t change anytime soon.
See the goal-scoring dog in the video below.
