Kangaroo hops at chance to interrupt Australian soccer match

Kangaroo hops at chance to interrupt Australian soccer match”

This one is a live kangaroo who thought they'd get into the World Cup spirit and make themselves at home on the pitch during a National Premier League match in the ACT.

Perhaps, just perhaps, they need a hero.

A women's soccer match in Canberra, Australia, had a surprise visitor on Sunday afternoon - and that visitor didn't have any intention of leaving the field.

A kangaroo interrupts the match between Canberra Football Club and Belconnen United in Canberra on June 24, 2018.

The male eastern grey kangaroo bounded back during the second half, indifferent to efforts to drive him away and delaying play for 32 minutes.

It was eventually guided out of the field after forcing the game to be stopped briefly.

Various attempts were made to shoo the animal away during the break - one person even took a shot at the animal but the real life Socceroo performed a brilliant save before moving away on its own accord.

The commentators were at least enjoying the spectacle.

Video from the incident shows the kangaroo hopping between players and jumping fences around the field.

The marsupial left but returned soon after, dashing to the goalpost past the stunned players.

Short of the Socceroos starting with Tom Rogic, Tim Cahill, Steve Irwin, Toady off of Neighbours, Jimmy Barnes, Dani Minogue, Darren Lockyer, Shane Warne, Les Patterson, Blinky Bill and Skippy himself against Peru on Tuesday, we're confident that this is the most Australian thing you'll see this week.
