Turkey's biggest football club was brought to a standstill at the weekend by two of the cutest pitch invaders ever seen.

Galatasaray's friendly against German second tier side Vfr Aalen in Antalya had to be halted early in the second half when the football-loving pooches cantered onto the pitch and began playing with the stars.

Aalen's Brazilian striker Cidimar - wearing the number 33 shirt - immediately started petting the two dogs, earning huge cheers from the thousands in the stadium before the dogs were successfully chased off.

The disruption didn't put Cidimar off in the slightest: a few minutes later he scored what would be the only goal of the match with a stunning right-foot rocket from outside the area.
