This is the shocking moment a football fan blows his own fingers off after lighting a flare outside a stadium in the Netherlands. 

Footage showed the man waving around the pyrotechnic on the street outside the Philips stadium in Eindhoven before it exploded.

While he looked stunned following the loud bang of the misfired flare, he continued on as if nothing was wrong.

Only when blood was dripping down from his hand, the fan seemed to realise what had happened.  

Another video showed that one of his fingers was missing and the man staring at his mangled hand in disbelief as concerned bystanders gathered around him to help.

The football fan had fired off the flare ahead of the Dutch League final between PSV Eindhoven and Sparta Rotterdam. 

He appeared to be a PSV fan as he was wearing a scarf in the team’s colours, but he likely missed his team’s 4-2 win due to having to seek medical attention.

His team ended a six-year wait to secure their 25th Eredivisie – the Dutch league – title on Sunday.

Needing a point to make sure after a dominant campaign in which they have lost only once in 32 games, PSV fell behind early but rallied to defeat mid-table Sparta.

‘We scored the most goals, conceded the fewest goals and created the most chances. We have shown that we are the best in the Eredivisie, very simple,’ player Teze, 24, told Dutch TV station NOS.

‘Six years ago I was watching (from the stands) like everyone else. I hoped then that I would one day be able to experience such a moment myself.’

There were rapturous scenes at the final whistle as fans waved cardboard replicas of the Dutch league trophy, but remained in the stands after there had been pre-match fears of a pitch invasion.
