WATCH: This keeper-dog saves an open goal during a football match

In what could be an unfortunate turn of events on the football field a dog — yes, a dog — spared the blushes of a goalkeeper by last expertly heading clear what would have been a sure-shot goal.

The hilarious intervention took place in Argentina during a match between Juventud Unida de Gualeguaychú and Defensores de Belgrano.

In the video which has gone viral, with his side trailing, as the Defensores de Belgrano keeper attempts a quick counter-attack, he misjudges his kick, thwacking the ball against an opposing player. The ball takes a deflection and lands at the feet of another opposition forward who wastes no time and shoots for goal.

What happens next is nothing short of miraculous.

A dog, sprinting across the face of the goal, expertly heads the ball, as it harmlessly lands wide off the post and out of play.

The keeper-dog’s intervention wasn’t enough to spare his (presumed) team from a receiving a hiding, however, as they lost 3-0 in the Argentine Torneo Federale encounter.
