Footage from the match, posted on Twitter, shows the eager little pooch playing with the ball even as two footballers on the field try to take it back. Eventually, someone had to get a second football to distract the dog and keep him off the pitch.
Watch the video below:
In less than 24 hours, the video tweeted by TyC Sports collected well over 12,500 'likes' and 7,000 retweets.
After his appearance on the football pitch, the dog enthusiastically gave a "bite" to a local news channel. Perhaps mistaking the microphone for a delicious treat, the cheeky little dog gnawed at it.
While we see a bright future for this football fiend, we can't help but wonder whether he'll be given the spot he deserves on the team.
