Goal celebration goes badly wrong

Updated: September 19, 2014

Fine solo goal but the celebration did not go quite as planned for Coritiba forward Joel Tagueu.

The Cameroon player leapt over the advertising hoarding, unaware that there was a hole behind it containing steps that led down from the pitch into the dressing room.

It was Coritiba’s third, and sealed a 3-1 win over Sao Paulo on Wednesday night

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

To compound his woes, he was shown a yellow card for the celebration.
