It happened during a third-division match between Juventud Unida de Gualeguaychúa and Defensores de Belgrano de Villa Ramallo (quite names, isn't it?) when a shot from a player from the former team, which had a clear path to the goal, was miraculously saved by a dog which almost came out of nowhere.
