Well, this certainly is a day the future newlyweds will never forget.
FC Smorgon’s Vladislav Shubovich had his on-field proposal thwarted over the weekend by a security guard, who shoved his girlfriend away after the defender got down on one knee, The New York Post reported.

In a video posted on Twitter, Shubovich can be seen getting in the security staffer’s face after pushing the athlete’s lady love out of the picture, with Shubovich’s teammates then coming between the two to separate them.
Fortunately, Shubovich got a do-over following a few chaotic moments, and this time, his teammates stood by his side as he got down on one knee in front of his bride-to-be.
Shubovich, 22, then slid an engagement ring onto his gal pal’s finger as onlookers applauded and cheered. The happy couple shared a kiss and embraced before Shubovich handed the soon-to-be Mrs. a gorgeous bouquet of flowers.
Shubovich’s future wife also appeared to share a sweet moment from the proposal on Instagram, captioning Sunday’s post, “She said ‘yes.’”
Proposal day turned out to be a momentous one for Shubovich as Smorgon defeated Volna Pinsk, 2-0. Smorgon is currently second in the Belarusian First League.
