Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang dropped the FA Cup during Arsenal’s celebrations at Wembley Stadium on Saturday.

The Arsenal skipper looked flummoxed as the base of the trophy stayed where it was when he went to pick up the cup, so he took it with him.

And when he went to celebrate with his team-mates, he promptly dropped it!

Aubameyang was the star of the show on the pitch, scoring twice as Arsenal came from 1-0 down to beat the Blues 2-1 at Wembley.

But he has clearly never watched a team celebrate winning the FA Cup before, given what happened at the end.

With social distancing in place, there was no one to hand the trophy to Aubameyang, he had to take it off a plinth himself. And when they main trpphy came away from the base, he was not sure what to do.

So, rather than picking the cup up by its hands and leaving the base on the plinth, Aubameyang took the whole thing with him.

And that caused confusion as to how he was going to hold it aloft.

And before he could do so, right in front of his team-mates, Aubameyang dropped the whole thing, to raucous laughter from his colleagues.

When the Gabon international picked it up again, he did so with the base underneath the cup, but the base was upside down, before lifting the whole thing high above his head in celebration.

Thankfully it did not look like any damage was done to the trophy, although his ego might have taken a hit.
