Italian goalie Gianluigi Buffon was impressive in his side's 2-0 Euro 2016 win over Belgium this morning but he needs to work on his celebrations.

Buffon ran the length of the pitch following the victory and attempted to hang onto the crossbar of the goal in front of Italian fans but failed.

Fans at the Parc Olympique ground posted videos on Twitter of keeper falling onto his back after slipping off the crossbar.



Italian produced a fine performance at both ends of the pitch in the Group E fixture. Emanuele Giaccherini opened the scoring in the 32nd minute before Graziano Pellè scored a splendid volley in injury time.
