Deer Kangaroo interrupts soccer game, tries out as goalie

A soccer match in Australia had a surprising uninvited guest on Sunday. A kangaroo hopped the fence and bounded right onto the field.

A town I visited when I was in Australia had a problem with the local kangaroos wanting to come graze on the town's soccer field. IIRC the fact that the field is irrigated makes the grass taste better to them or something like that. The front lawn of the motel I stayed in, just up the street from the soccer field, was also a favorite spot of theirs.

This would have been much more interesting if it had happened during the World Cup in Russia.
