Celebration woe for goal hero 'keeper

A Brazilian 'keeper who injured his knee while celebrating a goal he scored with a 90th-minute header will be sidelined for at least six months after tearing knee ligaments.

Sport Recife's Saulo went up to score the winner in a 2-1 victory over Vitoria but he badly twisted his right knee as he sprinted behind the goal toward cheering fans and had to leave the match on a stretcher.
