The friendliness extended to the cheeky and excited pups who clearly had no idea they were interrupting something important and entered the game tussling over what appears to be a plastic bag.

 

After a happy trot around the pitch and a brief meet and greet with some of the players, security guards came to remove the dogs so the match could continue.

German team VfR Aalen went on to win the match 1-0. Watch the video below.
