A rare goal celebration was captured during the state football league in Brazil after America Mineiro forward Aloisio dos Santos Goncalves scored a brilliant freekick against Cruzeiro on Monday, March 20 in the Mineiro Championship semifinal. The 34-year-old forward ran towards his team bench and performed an unusual celebration, which was joined by his teammates and coach Vagner Mancini.
After leading 2-0 in the first-leg, America-MG knocked out Cruzeiro from the Mineiro Championship semifinals by 2-1 (4-1 aggregate score) at the Raimundo Sampaio stadium. Aloisio scored the opener in the 33rd minute followed by Oliveira's 77th minute equalizer while America midfielder Ale helped his side to take the lead in the last minute of the match.
Aloisio scored stunning freekick to open the scoring in the match and instantly ran towards his teammates on the bench and slid against them as a couple of players jumped to escape. The forward, who plays for the China national team, then punched Mancini a couple of times before other players threw hands on him as part of the celebration.
