Kangaroo stops play during women's soccer match

For the third time in recent weeks kangaroos have jumped on to the sporting fields in Canberra

Some players and officials tried to kick a ball or two at the big guy to see if that would make him move.

A football match between Australian teams Belconnen United and Canberra suffered an unusual delay on Sunday, when a kangaroo bounded on to the pitch.

It's World Cup time and that means everybody is a soccer fan these days, especially one kangaroo in Australia who took over a match and refused to leave the field.

A soccer came in the Australian capital was stopped for almost 20 minutes when a kangaroo hopped onto the field. He ignored officials attempting to scare him away, and was unmoved by multiple soccer balls tossed his way.

"It was just a real menace", Harvey said.

While sightings of kangaroos in Canberra are far from rare, Gibbs said it was unusual for the animal to find its way onto an enclosed oval and made it even more hard to remove it. It stood pretty tall. "But I don't think anyone was alarmed too much by it".

Although the match was played in the exclusive inner suburb of Deakin, kangaroos can be found nearly anywhere in Canberra, the national capital.

Eventually, a coach in a pickup truck plucked up the courage to chase the roo out of the stadium. Kangaroos usually doze among the trees by day and wander the streets at night to graze on watered lawns.
