Soccer fans will relate that sometimes you just want to run into the stadium and show the players how it’s done. These emotions often occur in couch potatoes during an outburst, but we shall leave the game to professionals, except if that someone who wants to help is a dog.

This stray dog decided to take the fate of its home team into its own paws during the game between The Strongest and Nacional Potosí at the Hernando Siles Stadium in La Paz, Bolivia, on December 24. The pooch stole the show for three minutes and had some of the best moments of glory.

The dog joyfully ran around with a stolen football boot in its mouth and received some well-deserved belly rubs from players on the field before being carried off the pitch by a player from the home team, Raúl Castro.

The “furball” later named Cachito not only won the hearts of fans, but was a good luck charm for the home team as they won the Christmas Eve match 3-0.

Unfortunately, its story doesn’t end there, although in the end, it’s more than the dog bargained for (unless that was its plan all along).

Unfortunately, a few days after the match, the dog was found in poor condition after being struck by a vehicle. The dog was rescued by a local shelter and is slowly recovering.

After hearing the news, Raúl Castro, who escorted Cachito out of the stadium, decided to adopt the pup as soon as he returns from the next game.
