Over the past few days a video has gone viral on social media and gained immense popularity. It is a well known fact that football is loved by many across the world. And in a state like Goa, football scores many notches over cricket, that seems to occupy quite a bit of the sports discourse. However, the video of a cow enjoying the beautiful game in Goa has grabbed the attention of netizens. Yes, you read that right.
The video features a cow on a football field along with young boys. In the two-minute undated clip, the cow initially plays with the ball as other players struggle to retrieve it. But as one among them manages to get hold of the ball, the cow runs after him. The bovine gets actively involved in the game and also kicks the ball several times.
Indian cricket commentator Harsha Bhogle too shared this viral video on Twitter and captioned it as, “This is the funniest thing you will see today!”
