Striker scores first professional goal, injures himself celebrating

FOX Sports: Dumbest Sports Injuries

Internacional striker Maurides went a bit too far when celebrating his first professional goal on Wednesday against América.

The 19-year-old Brazilian was understandably excited after scoring Internacional’s third goal of the match in the 88th minute. But his joy quickly turned to pain when he attempted an aerial celebration.

His cartwheel-to-backflip move went smoothly until the final landing, when Maurides landed awkwardly and twisted his knee. He had to be stretchered off the field.

The team doctor said his knee sprain was more of a scare than something that will sideline him for a lengthy period, but it’s safe to say Maurides won’t be trying any more acrobatic celebrations any time soon.
