WATCH: Footballer scores beautiful goal and then leaps into a hole while celebrating

Coritiba forward Joel Tagueu’s goal celebration went spectacularly wrong when he jumped over an advertising hoarding and disappeared into a hole during a Brazilian championship match after scoring a beautiful goal

First the goal. 

He ran from the halfway line then rounded the goalkeeper to score his second goal of the game, and Coritiba’s third, in a 3-1 win over Sao Paulo on Wednesday night.

The Cameroon player then got carried away. 

He continued running and leapt over the hoarding, unaware that there was a hole behind it containing steps that led down from the pitch into the dressing room.

The player landed in the hole, his blow softened by a tarpaulin, and emerged looking decidedly groggy before returning to the game.

To add insult to injury, he was shown a yellow card for the celebration.- Reuters
