Peter Crouch’s robot, Jurgen Klinsmann’s belly-slide, Robbie Keane’s rolling, pointing thing that he does. There are good celebrations and then there’s this. The fact that it was entirely unintentional and potentially deadly doesn’t make it any less enjoyable to watch.
Coritiba striker Joel scored the second of his brace in beating Sao Paulo 3-1 and celebrated by jumping the hoardings behind the Sao Paulo goal. Completely unaware that there was a dangerously placed tunnel concealed by the advertisements.
A steward tries to warn the Cameroonian front man but Joel is having none of it and promptly disappears down the hole. Don’t worry he survives with nothing more than a new fear of the unknown.
Look before you leap? That’s not the kind of spineless attitude that’ll get you an honourable mention on the Paddy Power blog.
