Manchester United are running roughshod over Tottenham, up three goals to none at halftime in a crucial match between Champions League aspirants. Wayne Rooney made a great run and finish to score United's third, and afterwards unveiled the boxing knockout celebration above.
We aren't exactly clear what Cologne's Anthony Ujah was going for with this goal celebration involving club mascot Hennes the goat—is he miming riding it? are the horns like motorcycle handlebars?—but what we're quite certain of is ol' Hennes isn't digging it.
You've seen plenty of bicycle kicks, but have you ever seen a bicycle goal celebration? Mexico's Alejandro Díaz Liceaga broke it out after scoring his second goal against Cuba today in a CONCACAF U-20 tournament match. El Tri is defending its title, and doing so in brutal fashion—they're up 6-1 at halftime.
FK Trakai's Dzimtry Koub scored an 86th minute equalizer in yesterday's Lithuanian A Lyga match against Zalgiris Vilnius, and immediately sprinted into the stands to give himself some polite applause. That he did it at an away match makes it even better.
Nomme Kalju's Hidetoshi Wakui scored a wholly unremarkable goal on Saturday, but made up for it with a winning celebration. Wakui scored the first goal of the Tallinn derby against F.C. Flora, picked up the ball, and immediately began choreographing the bowling pin celebration. It did not disappoint.
This is from Colombia's top league, the Primera A Clausura. By the time Vladimir Marin scored on this beautiful free kick in the 80th minute yesterday, Deportivo Cali already had a two-goal lead on Once Caldas. Marin's goal essentially salted the match away. He celebrated by letting everyone know it was time to go.
People are weird. It explains almost everything that ever happens in the world, but sometimes words are not enough. Sometimes images hammer home the sentiment. Muteba Kidiaba, a goalkeeper for the DR Congo national team, is today's example.
Ninety-fourth-minute winners are always likely to give birth to some unique celebrations. Ezequiel Lavezzi's kamikaze assault on the advertising boards during the Napoli/Cagliari clash on Wednesday didn't disappoint, showing shades of Temuri Ketsbaia's half-naked rampage at St. James Park in '98.
Antoine Griezmann of Real Sociedad may be an up-and-coming French soccer star, but that doesn't excuse this ridiculous celebration after his header put the White and Blue up two-nil on Deportivo. Act like you've been there before, young man. [Hot Clicks]
Did Maxi Rodriguez give a teammate a bit of amateur proctology? This is apparently a real topic of discussion.
I love (and regularly wager on) Mites on Ice, when they let a bunch of kids play hockey during intermissions. But these little tykes at Tuesday's Capitals game set a new standard for awwww with their team goal celebration.
Montenegro met Switzerland in Euro 2012 qualifying on Friday with Roma striker Mirko Vucinic scoring the only goal of the game, a dinked 68' finish.
During a game against Austrian club FC Red Bull Salzburg, Hapoel Tel Aviv's Itay Shechter scored after a very nice run, proceeded to pull a yarmulke out of his sock, (apparently) said a prayer—and was immediately given a yellow card.
As spotted by our pals at Pies, the Icelanders who clearly spend more time coming up with dance routines than learning how to tackle have been really quite busy.
Scores are rare; celebrate them. This Icelandic team does, in a choreographed routine that puts "run around with your shirt pulled over your head" to shame. But, as past videos show, the team has a history of Tony-worthy theatrical exuberance.
Let's officially bring this World Cup to a close with a compilation of men celebrating their goals with panache, hugs, pileups, and, in the case of two Italians, a particularly tender shotgun. Enjoy these rambunctious foreigners one last time.
