A Premier League soccer player reportedly smashed his Lamborghini into a garden in England this week -- after sideswiping a Mini -- but remarkably, he's okay. 

According to several local reports, the guy behind the wheel was Diafra Sakho -- a striker for West Ham United.

26-year-old Sakho reportedly lost control of the Lambo around 9 PM on Sunday night and ended up in the garden of a home in Hornchurch, Essex. 

The homeowner described the scene to local media outlets ... saying, "At around nine o'clock last night we heard it going up the road, it was unmistakable - it's a racing car isn't it?"

"We heard it accelerate and then just heard a big bang, like an explosion and a thud -- that's when I walked out. Lucky there was no one about. Lucky no one was hurt."

Sakho later tweeted about the incident ... saying, "Thank you for the messages. Was involved in a small car accident this evening. Thankfully no one was hurt."
