Footballer elbows team-mate in face during adorable celebration with ball boy

A heartwarming goal celebration took a turn for the worse when the scorer elbowed his team-mate in the face.

The unfortunate incident happened in the Israeli Premier League at the weekend. Midfielder Almog Buzaglo had given basement side Sektzia Ness Ziona the lead in their home clash with Hapoel Hadera on Saturday (March 14).

It was a potentially crucial goal in their battle to stave off relegation, but rather than celebrate with his team-mates, Buzaglo headed to one of the ball boys at the side of the pitch.

They preceded to carry out a presumably pre-planned routine which saw them exchange high-fives before hitting the dab – but they hadn't anticipated Buzaglo's midfielder partner Yoni Stoyanov arriving on the scene.

As a result, he received a brutal elbow to the face which sent him spinning. Buzaglo embraced the ball boy before he checked on Stoyanov, giving him a hug too.

A clip of the moment was lapped up by footy fans online with one commenting: "Took it like an absolute champion tbf."

"The choreographies are getting more and more sophisticated," replied another, while one couldn't contain their laughter as they simply wrote: "Hahahaha."

Unfortunately for Buzaglo, Stoyanov and Co, the afternoon didn't get any better thereafter. They couldn't hold onto their lead, ultimately losing 3-1 to leave them four points adrift at the bottom of the league.

The Israeli top flight splits into two divisions after the regular season concludes, with the top six sides competing for the title and the bottom eight battling it out to stay up.
