Mirko Vucinic: The short-less scorer of Juventus
Vucinic took his shorts off after scoring a penalty against Pescara in the Serie A, much to the delight of the crowd and the agony of the ones on field!
Taking your shirt off is a yellow card offence in football but Juventus' Mirko Vucinic had other ideas to beat that. He could not escape the booking though but netted another goal after the miraculous celebration.

He stripped off and immediately got a reprimand from the referee for 'unsporting behaviour'. Hilarious no? But he did not stop there and flung and swung his shorts over his head too.
"It was spontaneous. I felt like it and I did it," Vucinic explained afterwards.
Coach Antonio Conte was not too pleased with Vucinic's reaction but the player had gained confidence apparently when he scored another goal. Coach Conte, after the match, said: "I told Vucinic he had a terrible game and still scored two goals… Imagine what he would've done if he had played well."
But it's not the first instance that Vucinic has done the 'deed'. Playing for his international side Montenegro against Wales in 2010, he stripped to bare minimums while celebrating a goal.
