Spectacular Goal And Celebration FAIL! From Ibrahimovic (Video)
We will start with the goal, which was perhaps the best this weekend’s slate of soccer action had to offer. With the score tied nil-nil near the end of the first half, AC Milan’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic continued his stellar play by receiving the ball just outside the 6-yard box, and flicked it up before scissor-kicking it into the corner of the Fiorentina net. That would be the highlight moment for Zlatan.
As for the lowlight moment, that came during his celebration. Although the fist pump appears to be a rather conservative celebration, according to soccer’s standards, Ibrahimovic’s excitement caused him to put a little to much swing into it, resulting in a slight hyper-extension of his elbow.
The Swedish striker would remain on the ground clutching his right arm for a few minutes, but thankfully he was able to avoid the embarrassment of being substituted out of the game due to an injury caused by a over-exuberant goal celebration.
