Sometimes when footballers score a goal, they'll celebrate by pretending to knock out their teammates. Well, Bari's Francesco Caputo didn't pretend.
Just two minutes after Cesena took a 1-0 lead in the second half of their match against Bari on Sunday, Caputo equalized with this goal. And in his fit of joy he blasted the man who set him up, Emmanuel Rivas, right in the face with a wicked punch. Why? Who knows. But Rivas certainly wasn't expecting it. He thought he was going to get a nice hug and instead he got smacked in the eye.
If this is the start of a new trend in goal celebrations, they could finally become an interesting part of the game.
