Pooch on the pitch! Brazil's World Cup qualifier against Colombia brought to a standstill by loose dog on the field




Brazil's 1-1 draw with Colombia in this morning's World Cup qualifier wasn't the only thing that didn't go to script for the South American powerhouse - a pitch-invading dog also got in on the action.

Late in the first half with the score still even at 0-0, Brazil looked to be on the attack when a pass was threaded through Colombia's line to Neymar in space.

But as Neymar brought the ball towards the penalty box a rogue pooch appeared alongside the Colombian defenders giving chase. 

Neymar was eventually thwarted and given a corner but time was stopped while security staff chased down the wild dog to remove it from the field.

After two minutes, the animal was finally tied down and play resumed with Brazil scoring moments later through Willian.

But a late goal to Radamel Falcao saw the score finish up at 1-1.

Brazil have already qualified for the World Cup thanks to previous results.
