You're 19 years old, you've only played a handful of games for the Internacional senior team, and you've just scored your first ever goal.

The adrenaline is pumping, you can't believe it and you want to celebrate in the most extravagant way possible - a backflip. This doesn't end well.

I'm not sure what would be more painful - the injured knee or the wounded pride.

The Internacional doctor is hopeful he'll recover quickly, and his team didn't suffer too much - winning the Copa do Brasil third-round tie against América MG 3-1.

Check out the clip of Maurides's goal, his celebration and the awful moment when he realises he's just made an absolute fool of himself...
