We know some players celebrate with a backflip after they’ve scored but we’d never seen someone do it before they scored – that was until FC Baar’s Joonas Jokinen cropped up. The youth player completes an amazingly athletic somersault as he strikes the penalty. We’re off to try it on the five-a-side court over the weekend, wonder how many bones we’ll break?
