An international friendly between the women's national teams of Venezuela and Chile had an invader take over the pitch during the first half of their Saturday match. However, it wasn't a person.
A dog ran onto the pitch in the 37th minute, making friends with members of both teams and even the referee. While Venezuela went on to win 1-0, the unexpected pitch invader was undoubtedly the star of the show.
This actually isn't the first time a dog has invaded the pitch during a Venezuelan soccer game. Back in 2016, a dog interrupted a game between men's teams Pumas UNAM and Deportivo Tachira.

While it isn't something we see too often, this does bring up memories of when a cat ran onto the field at Yankee Stadium last year during a game between the New York Yankees and Baltimore Orioles.
