Numerous birds entered the pitch during this year's FFA Cup final at the AAMI Park, with Vukovic deciding to take action in the 58th minute.

The 31-year-old caused a pause in play while he carried off a seagull which had been flattened by a pass from one of his Sydney team-mates.

The bird was tended to off the pitch and made a full recovery a few minutes later.

The good deed brought Vukovic no luck, however as a goal from Tim Cahill was enough to earn Melbourne City the victory.
