Jubilant goalscorer elbows his team-mate in the face while celebrating

'Have you had an accident at work that wasn't your fault?'

Hellas Verona star Kevin Lasagna (yes, that's actually his name) might consider giving Injury Lawyers 4 U a call after having his bell rung by team-mate Thomas Henry during their defeat to Napoli on Monday.

After bringing his side level with a looping header in the opening minutes of the second half, Henry tore away in celebration. Limbs flying, he leaped into the air for an emphatic jumping fist-pump, but ended up accidentally elbowing Lasagna – who was celebrating alongside him – right in the chops.

Henry had to cut his celebration short and tend to his stricken team-mate, who had been knocked to the turf, with a halo of imaginary twittering birds circling his head.

A clip of the incident did the rounds on social media, and it's fair to say there wasn't an awful lot of sympathy for Lasagna, with users distracted by his hilarious name.

"Ah sheeeeet," posted one Reddit user. "I'm hearing he sadly pasta way," joked another.

A third commented: "Those two names sound like something out of PES [Pro Evolution Soccer]!"

As it turns out, Lasagna took a walloping for nothing as Napoli re-took the lead just a few minutes later. The contest ended 5-2, though the goal-fest was marred by accusations of racial abuse aimed at Napoli forward Victor Osimhen by sections of the Verona fans.

The Italian football association is currently conducting an investigation into the incident.
