Lichaj still hopes for dog despite missing out on hat trick
Jan. 08, 2018
NOTTINGHAM, England (AP) — Eric Lichaj missed out on a dog after falling one goal short of a hat trick in Nottingham Forest's FA Cup victory over Arsenal.
The American defender is hoping to convince wife Kathryn Lichaj to still allow him to get a pooch.
Lichaj tweeted Monday that "if anyone is bored on this Monday morning send dog pics, memes, gifs to @KatPerko" — his wife's user name. The hashtag "getericadog" completed the tweet.
After scoring twice in Forest's shock 4-2 victory over FA Cup holder Arsenal on Sunday, Lichaj revealed that he'd been hoping to take a penalty as his wife had promised him a dog if he scored three times in a game this year.
Lichaj's teammates also posted dog-related GIFs and videos on Monday.
