This guy’s goal celebration took a dramatic turn when he cleared the hoardings

When Benjamin Kololli scored from the penalty spot for FC Zurich in the Europa League he wheeled away in celebration, but was not prepared for what happened next.

The 26-year-old netted what turned out to be the winning goal against AEK Larnaca in the opening round of Europa League fixtures, and duly set off to celebrate.

Over the advertising hoardings he went, before attempting to hurdle another wall to celebrate with the fans. That was his downfall, quite literally.

Kololli was OK to continue for the rest of the game, although he must have been a little shaken.

If it wasn’t obvious, Zurich were playing away from home which goes some way to explaining his lack of awareness in the stadium.

Zurich held on for the win, going second in Group A behind Bayer Leverkusen. Thankfully Kololli didn’t make the same mistake at the final whistle.

Maybe keep the celebrations on the field of play next time, Benjamin.
