Another Early Goalie Celebration Results In Another Unreal Soccer Goal (Video)

When will these goalies learn?  Stop the ball.  Grab it.  Get it as far away from the net as possible.  Then you can do all the celebrating you want.

It never pays to celebrate early in sports, and soccer is no exception.  This goalie is now a poster-boy for such a message as he begins to pump his fist after the shooter rings the ball of the crossbar during a penalty shootout.  But as he celebrates with his back to the goal, the ball soars straight up into the air before bouncing in front of the goal line and into the top of the net.

Come to think of it, I’m not even sure what this goalie was celebrating about.  He didn’t even make the save in the first place, and now he must suffer through the embarrassment that he will likely endure thanks to his early, over-exuberant celebration.
