After sticking the ball in the back of the net, Biaksangzuala attempted an acrobatic somersault goal celebration, however the player messed up his execution to fall horribly on his head.

After his nasty impact on the pitch, Biaksangzuala was rushed to a nearby hospital, where it was revealed that he had damaged his spinal cord. Biaksangzuala then spent five days in hospital, before he finally lost his life on Sunday morning.

A source told reporters, “He was trying to do Germany’s Klose signature flip stunt, but it misfired unfortunately”.
