Thiago Silva scored in the seventh minute against Colombia on Friday, giving Brazil an early 1-0 lead in the 2014 FIFA World Cup quarterfinals.
Teammates immediately huddled around Silva in celebration, then Neymar provided some brief entertainment.
The Brazilian forward came running all the way from the far side of the field to join his teammates. As he neared the pile, he slipped and fell right onto his back.
Neymar wasn’t injured in the fall, but he was stretchered off in the 87th minute after taking a knee to the back from Colombia’s Juan Camillo Zuniga. Brazil went on to eliminate Colombia with a 2-1 victory.
