MLS star Nick Rimando plays head tennis with his dog in pool… and LOSES in brilliant clip

The 39-year-old, who has made 22 appearances for America, evidently has a strong bond with his Olde English Bulldog, who goes by the name Bruno.


Bruno sat poolside while Rimando took his place in his pool – while his family watched on and recorded the tally.

The footage was posted onto Twitter by Rimando – who saw the funny side of it.

Amazingly, the duo traded seven consecutive headers in a game of keepy-uppies.

It was to be Rimando who broke that streak though, with the veteran shot stopper hardly able to believe what had just happened.

It's probably right if Rimando hangs up his boots when it comes to head tennis!

On the field though, he looks set to continue playing into his 40's.

A two-time MLS Cup winner, Rimando was part of the USA squad that reached the last 16 of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

Rimando, an understudy to Tim Howard, set a new record for most saves in a World Cup finals match during the defeat to Belgium.

He also holds the record for the most career shutouts, wins, saves, and appearances in the MLS.
