Maurides (Internacional) scores 1st career goal then injures himself with acrobatic celebration!

Internacional’s Maurides claimed his first ever goal on Wednesday night, in a Copa do Brasil match against America Mineiro that ended in a 3-1 victory for Dunga’s side.

The goal from Maurides came in the 89th minute, so what happened next could have been a lot worse for Internacional but it is still a bizarre/amusing/unfortunate moment for the 19-year-old attacker.

Maurides launched into an acrobatic back flip celebration then landed akwardly and had to be stretchered off.

The goal itself was a fine near post header after a slick Internacional team move down the right.

You can add this to the rather lengthy list of football celebrations gone wrong.
