Social Media Reacts To Italy’s Ciro Immobile Faking Injury, Celebrating Goal Seconds Later

While this sort of stuff seems to happen every game in football (soccer), when you’re on the big stage like the Euros, you will be burned at the stake.


Italy’s Ciro Immobile went for a free ball inside the box against Belgium then proceeded to look like he had gotten his foot broken. Rolling around like dog in the grass, he then realized his team scored and proceeded to hop up and jog over just fine.

It’s no wonder football players get such a bad reputation.

With the whole world watching the Euro competition, many took to social media to have a quick laugh at Immobile’s acting job.

Italy went on to win 2-1 and eliminate Belgium. They will play against Spain on Tuesday July 6th where the winner will go the Euro Cup Finals
