The match was stopped for almost three minutes due to the raccoon

The match between the Philadelphia Union and New York City FC was stopped for a few minutes from Wednesday to Thursday night. The reason for this is quite remarkable: a raccoon walked across the field for several minutes.

Halfway through the first half of the match between the Philadelphia Union and New York City FC, the visitors were leading 0-1 thanks to a goal by Alonso Martinez, when a raccoon suddenly ran onto the field. Crazy footage shows how the animal deftly eludes staff at a Pennsylvania club for several minutes, amid loud cheers, before being caught in an empty garbage can.

With his performance, Raguinho the Raccoon, as he is fondly called, broke the competition record. Never before has there been a raccoon as big as Raccoonho on the field in an MLS match. At 161 seconds, the record has been in his name since Wednesday night.

After the raccoon is captured, the fight can resume. In first-half injury time, Hans Wolf doubled up for the visitors from New York. After the break, Julian Carranza did something again for Philadelphia, after which neither team scored again: 1-2.

Lionel Messi And Luis Suarez have shown they can still be very important on the field.
