Union broadcaster Dave Leno went all-in on the call for a hilarious sequence.

The name of the raccoon is still being debated by fans. The two most popular names at the moment are Raquinho and Wayne Raccooney.

The Union may have lost Wednesday’s game 2-1, however the fans at Subaru Park still had plenty to cheer for with the team’s newest furry player. The club did confirm that Raquinho was safely released after the pitch invasion.

What a legend.
