WATCH: Dog bails out goalkeeper with incredible goal-line block

By Adam McKendry

They say dogs are a man's best friend. Well this canine certainly did a goalkeeper in Argentina a favour!

The game in question is in Argentina's third division, a big clash between Defensores de Belgrano and Juventud Unida, with home side Juventud already up 3-0.

As we join the action, Defensores goalie Ramon Velazco has just claimed the ball but, as he tries to clear it, a Juventud player blocks it and kicks it towards the empty goal.

It's 4-0, right?

Wrong! Because Defensores' new sweeper keeper comes to the rescue!

Rumours say the dog is now being scouted by several Premier League clubs, so keep an eye out during the January transfer window!
