The Monaco left-back was representing his country in a European Championship play-off and scored with just three minutes remaining.
The goal meant Sweden were still leading 3-1 on the night – but, crucially, France were heading through to the finals in the Czech Republic on away goals.
With so little time remaining in the match, Kurzawa decided it was time to set off on a hugely ill-advised celebration.
He brought his hand to his head to deliver as clear a piece of sign language as you’ll ever see: “See ya later boys!”, his gesture screamed. “We’re on the way to the finals – and you’ll be watching on TV”.
Now, if he left it there it might have been okay since it wasn’t exactly grossly offensive. But Kurzawa chose to keep on pushing it, goading several Sweden players – including striker John Guidetti – by getting up in their faces and continuing the celebration.
