The Cameroon player leapt over the advertising hoarding, unaware that there was a hole behind it containing steps that led down from the pitch into the dressing room.

It was Coritiba’s third, and sealed a 3-1 win over Sao Paulo on Wednesday night

Unfortunately, the player landed in the hole, his blow softened by a tarpaulin, and emerged looking shaky before returning to the game.

To compound his woes, he was shown a yellow card for the celebration.
