In today’s first must-see match, a squirrel interrupted the game between Queens Park Rangers and Leicester City at Loftus Road.

The incident happened in the 14th minute of the Championship game when a squirrel ran on to the pitch and stopped the game. Leicester City’s David Nugent then chased the squirrel around the pitch before the game could be re-started.

Here’s a GIF of Nugent chasing the squirrel.

And according to supporters at the ground, the crowd started singing “There’s only one Luis Suarez” as the squirrel ran around.

    Incredibly lazy article! David Nugent is a striker, not a goalkeeper! Do your research! Pathetic!
