VIDEO: Billy goat “starring” at football game in Lassithi

A stubborn billy goat became the star of a football game on the island of Crete.

The game in the town of Lasithi between two local teams was disrupted several times as the stubborn animal kept walking onto the pitch.

The goat wandered into the match, much to the surprise of players, and stood in front of the goalkeeper, causing laughter in the audience.

It was then taken off by a coach and player, rather unwillingly, only to run back onto the field again and stand guard in front of the goal.
