Play of the day: When goal celebrations go wrong

When Pablo Cesar Cabral scored a 93rd minute goal to give his Turkish Premier League side Kasimpasa a 3-0 win over rivals Gaziantepspor, he celebrated in true South American style - by taking off his shirt.

The Uruguayan defender would have anticipated receiving a yellow card for the popular celebration, but could not have predicted the shenanigans that were to follow.

Cabral first escaped an attempted robbery of his shirt by a fan in the crowd, only to lose it seconds later when a cheeky youngster sprinted onto the field and snatched it from his grasp.

Scenes then descended into a farce when the item was chucked into the crowd and another young fan, admittedly with some hesitancy, moved away from the stewards.

Peace was eventually restored with Cabral somewhat sheepishly laughing the whole incident off, but you get the feeling he will think twice before celebrating topless again.
