Italy picked up a big win to open it’s Euro 2016 campaign, beating Belgium 2–0 on Monday. And no one was more excited than Italian goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon.

After the final whistle, Buffon went sprinting down the pitch toward the Italian supporters and tried to celebrate by swinging on the crossbar. 

It didn’t go well.
