When His Team Scores, An 'Injured' Soccer Star Performs A 'Miracle' Recovery

On Friday's Euro 2020 quarter-final match between Italy and Belgium, Twitter users mockingly suggested a "miracle" occurred.

Ciro Immobile of Italy rolled around on the field in apparent agony following a seemingly innocuous penalty box encounter with Belgium's Jan Vertonghen.

However, when Immobile's teammate Nicolo Barella scored a goal to put Italy ahead seconds later, he jumped to his feet to celebrate.

Italy won 2-1 and will now face Spain in the European Championship semi-finals on Tuesday.

The video of Immobile's impersonation went viral on Twitter, garnering millions of views and a lot of criticism for her unsportsmanlike behavior:

“Perhaps the euphoria of the goal masked the pain?” joked BBC presenter Mike Bushell on Saturday morning.

Others poked fun at the soccer star in the following ways:
