FOOTBALL matches are usually invaded by the odd fan trying to grab their 10 seconds of glory.
But not often do you see a dog sprinting on the pitch, swooping the ball and outrunning the security.
But Mexican second-division side Alebrijes de Oaxaca's 4-0 win on Thursday against Dorados was overshadowed, as a four-legged superstar became the unexpected star of the match.

Security were spotted trying to get hold of the dog as he darted across the ground with the game ball in his mouth.
Staff embarrassingly failed to capture the dog, much to the hilarity of fans.
