Chicken Invades The Pitch During Wigan vs. Blackburn (Video)
Wigan Athletic and the Blackburn Rovers were only able to produce one goal during their EPL match earlier today, which is equal to the number of chicken sightings that their game produced.
To the best of my knowledge, this isn’t the first time an animal has made an appearance during an English Premier League game this season, but it is the first time that the intruding animal was a chicken. And for those wondering, even chickens in England have allegiances with EPL clubs. Judging by the flag on its back, this one was a Wigan fan.
Apparently chickens on the field are good luck in English soccer, as Antolín Alcaraz scored for Wigan 80 minutes later to give them the 1-0 victory in front of their hometown fans.
You can watch the chicken invade the pitch at DW Stadium in the video below.
