Lopes scores 4 to lead Sapporo past S-Pulse in J-League
SAPPORO, Japan (AP) — Striker Anderson Lopes may be keeping his goal celebrations more down to earth in future.
The Brazilian celebrated his second goal of a soccer game in Japan by jumping over advertising boards at the side of the field — totally unaware there was a 3-meter (9-foot) drop on the other side.
In footage shared on social media, Lopes was briefly attended to by team officials. He appeared fine, got up and claimed four goals in total at Sapporo Dome as Consadole Sapporo beat Shimizu S-Pulse 5-2 in the J-League on Saturday.
