Maurides Celebration Injury: Soccer Player Injures Knee After Scoring First Career Goal (VIDEO)

Internacional striker Maurides scored his first career goal on Wednesday night, but his celebration afterwards may have overshadowed the highlight.

In a match against America Mineiro in the Copa do Brasil, the 19-year-old netted his first ever professional goal in the 89th minute, giving Inter a 3-1 lead. He started celebrating and attempted a running backflip, but botched the dismount.

The result was a sprained knee and Maurides had to leave the game, per 101greatgoals.

Of course, it's not the first time an athlete has hurt himself celebrating a play.
