Kangaroo stricken with World Cup fever invades Australian soccer game

June 25, 2018

In the immortal words of Lloyd Christmas, put another shrimp on the barbie, because we have yet another batch of kangaroo thunder from Down Under to share with you. Instead of tormenting golf pins and drop kicking cyclists, however, this 'roo took it's unique disruptive abilities to the wild world of Aussie women's soccer, interrupting a match between Canberra FC and Belconnen United to vault a couple fences, play a little goalkeeper, and show off its pace for the scouts.

ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT NARRATOR VOICE: It wasn't.
