Cute Koala Interrupts Soccer Match — And Everybody Wins


You certainly don't have to be a sports fan to appreciate this little guy's moves on the field.

Folks in the stands at a recent soccer match in Australia were forced to wait as a carefree koala decided it would be a good time to make his appearance - wandering onto the pitch like a furry invader.

No one seemed to mind, though. In fact, it was like they couldn't get enough.

"It lightened the whole crowd," attendee Maneena Roberts told Storyful. "Everyone was laughing and enjoying the koala."

Fortunately, it didn't take too much convincing to get the koala to move along. One of the players was even kind enough to escort the marsupial off the field to watch from the sidelines.

No matter the final score, in this soccer game, everybody won.
