Brazilian 19-year-old Maurides thought he had died and gone to footballing heaven this week when his 88th-minute header rounded off Internacional's 3-1 victory over America MG in the first leg of their Copa do Brasil third-round tie.
The goal was a moment all the more special for the youngster since it was the first of his nascent career.
And Maurides was clearly determined to mark the occasion in style. After wheeling away from goal at top speed and heading back up the pitch in a sprint of pure glee, he decided to cap things off with a cartwheel culminating in a backflip.
Great idea, in theory. In practice, not so much. Maurides mis-timed his gymnastics slightly and, while he managed to land on two feet, he hit the deck so heavily that he immediately crumpled to the turf in agony.
It quickly became clear that he could not carry on, and was stretchered off the pitch.
Maurides's team doctor described the knee sprain was "more of a scare" than something that could keep him out for a long period of time - however he was subsequently ruled out for three months.
From now on the teenager will probably stick to celebrating his goals by crawling into the foetal position for several seconds. Preferably while being guarded by a couple of team-mates.
