VIDEO: Must watch! Robben's hilarious goal celebration fail

Former Chelsea winger Arjen Robben scored against Eintracht Braunschweig on Saturday and then completely messed up his celebration.

Arjen Robben showed us all that even the best footballers are prone to looking stupid sometimes. He went for a classic sliding on the knees celebration to celebrate his goal against Eintracht Braunschweig. Unfortunately it didn't go to plan and he ended up looking rather silly.

Not only that, but it went so badly for him, he ended up ripping his socks. Luckliy the Dutch international wasn't too badly hurt, just majorly embarrassed.

Robben's embarrassment was caused by the tights he was wearing. Apparently made from velcro, they cause friction when they came to contact with the grass, and led to Arjen flying in the air.
